I won't write the whole thing in German but I love it! But I still won't.Are missionaries allowed to get high from this work? I'm feeling just the love of it cloud my body! It is very important for a missionary to be obedient and to be "a missionary", sometimes you just need to love the members and people there. They are real people who you need to love and not to just open your mouth at. I have really learned to love the people here and I believe that will make my whole mission. The love that I have for these people comes from Christ and it is the love that He has for them. It is so cool and I can't be grateful enough to feel it go through me everyday. Every time that I have been given the opportunity to exercise my priesthood power, I feel the love that the Savior has for these people that He is trying to communicate with. This feeling even brings me, yes, even Elder Hays to tears.
This General Conference was amazing. I can't tell you about it because of how amazing it was and I just have a ton of ideas and goals that I need to organize in my head first so I will tell you about it next week:) I can share my favorite quotes though!
I was thinking about Travis Ashton. I was thinking about how great of an example to me he was. How loving and excited he was and the great charity he had, just as our Savior has. Please let him know that I think of him and his example often. That he has impacted my life in a very positive way and teaches me to become a better person overall. Tell him I love him and that Germany says hello :)
