Lucky you guys you get 2! Stories from me!
When I was in Hawaii my cousin Travis showed us this where he tells the story of his conversion from being a 3rd year Seminary student in the Catholic Church to being baptized and serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I love this whole talk but there is one part I am talking about today, and linking to which starts at 53:04, I encourage you to listen to the whole talk its about an hour long, but anyways! We were listening to this talk when I was in Hawaii and this last part hit me like a ton of bricks, It talks about how this lady who they teach and gets baptized and get’s her patriarchal blessing and it says she would have been baptized 25 years sooner if someone else had answered their mission call to serve a mission! BUT SHE DIDN’T BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T GO! This just smashed me! It made me realize I wasn’t going for me. I was going because others need to hear the message of Jesus Christ and how HIS restored church is here on the earth today! I know this is why I am here! To help bring our other brothers and sisters to the truth! I love this Gospel and the Book of Mormon and I know its the most true book on earth! I am so grateful I didn’t blow my chance to serve a mission! I love you all!
