Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, and rejoice ye inhabitants thereof, for the Lord is God, and beside him there is no Savior. Great is his wisdom, marvelous are his ways, and the extent of his doings none can find out. His purposes fail not, neither are there any who can stay his hand. From eternity to eternity he is the same, and his years neverfail. For thus saith the Lord—I, the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end. Great shall be their reward and eternal shall be their glory.

Sisters, You're Called to Serve!

Life in the mission is grand! I am staying in Bridlington with Sister Sorensen!! We are excited about it!
I am SOOOOO HAPPY that girls can go on missions when they are 19!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was pretty much the best news of my whole LIFE!!! EVERY girl should serve a mission, and this has made that a lot more possible. When you are on a mission, you are literally on a mini life. You learn things a lot faster then you would in normal life. I would encourage every young woman to pray, with real intent, and ask if serving a mission would benefit them and others. Remember, if you have a desire to serve God, you are CALLED to the work. Just because we're girls doesn't mean that the Lord expects less from us then the boys. It doesn't say that if you are a man and you have a desire then go, but if you're a girl then if you let it slide then it's okay. You are CALLED. Sisters can do the work in a completely different way then Elders can. We are BOTH desperately needed in the field. Search, ponder, and pray!!
I love you all, have a good week! <3
