What a week in Nogent. One of the greatest weeks of learning about myself and about the Atonement of Jesus Christ that I have ever had.
Communication. A relatively simple word which is ridiculously difficult to do well sometimes. It has been the basic concept underlying many of the trials of this transfer. Though we can communicate with one another, understanding is a completely different story. The opportunity we have to speak, to pass our emotions, feelings, and thoughts to another person is incredible when pondering of the idea of communication. I am ever so grateful for the chance to practice communcication everyday, not only with my companion and those with which I serve, but also the blessed communication with my Father in Heaven through His son Jesus Christ.
The healing of the Atonement is real. The love of Christ is often given to us through others. I am grateful for the difficult times in life, for they are the greatest opportunities to grow, to learn, and to love. The last words my dad said to me before entering the MTC were, "obedience fixes everything." I do agree, but would like to add patience and charity along with obedience.
I pray you have a week filled with the love of Christ. He is there for you. Always.
