This week was wonderful and full of great learning expierences. I always have so many thoughts and impressions to write about, but there just isnt enough time, and so I will speak briefly about the activities of the week and share a spiritual thought and impression I have had all week long running through my mind.
This week consisted in.
Interviews Porvenir zone
Sister Trainer leader Training
Temple with Leadership
Concilio of Leadership
Interviews Central zone
Intercambios with Zone leaders
I love thinking about all the things that happened in week and pulling out all that I learned. Its like making juice, I just try and squeeze all the juice out, because wow, there are so many things that the Lord is trying to teach me. I think sometimes im lazy and I throw the fruit away to early, without getting all the juice out of it, but im working on that one.
During all of these activities I have been focusing on Charity. Charity in the sense of Seeing others as Christ sees them, speaking with others as Christ would speak with them, and loving others as Christ loves them. After each day, before sleeping, I tried to read something about Charity to see how I did, and every night I noticed that I am not even close, but thats okay, Charity is something that we most Strive for everyday! It comes from Christ through the spirit, its the most important attribute because once attained, we become as Christ is, and we are able to make a difference, we are able to change the lives of people, beause it is not Elder Marshall how does it, it is Chirst.
I found during the week, missionaries who are great examples of Charity, that are striving as well, during the interviews I had the chance to look at each missionary as Christ does, and my heart was full of more energy, with more words and impressions to say.
During the Sister leader training meeting, I was surround by sisters that are full of Charity, and I received many impressions on how I can lead and Love more as the sisters do.
Concilio I tried with all my heart to love them all, and it is not easy when you are surround by so many different people, and all require a differnt type of attention and help.
Intercambios, You just pray during the whole change that they can feel the Lords love and his Hand in his work, and that a new hope will sprout inside of them!
I returned to our room yesterday and I was drained, I was astounded by how Christ does it, and he did it! He amazes me everyday, because all during this week his Love was perfect for me, the way he guided me, and answered my prayers and lifted me up when I felt like putting my head down. I love him and his great work, its not easy to be full of Charity but that is what is required!
Moroni 7:48 says we must pray with all the energy of our Heart!!! I have always thought until this week that ya we must pray hard, but I learned that after praying we must put all of our Energy in to having this great Love, his love for his Children, and than it will be given, and we will be amazed when he comes, because as it teaches us in Moroni those who have the gift of Charity, will be the same as he is in the last day!
I love this great work, I ofted get lost in this great work, not understanding how he does it, and how he has the energy to do it, but I love how in the temple we understand how, and why!
Pictures I will send next week! Sorry Love ya!
