COMPANION: I AM SO STOKED! My new companion is Sister Kahoalii from da Big Island!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this. We have so many mutual friends back home on the islands and I’m so excited to just talk story with her! We’ve been friends since I got to the mission but I never imagined we’d be placed together as companions. It is a MAJOR blessing from the Lord.
INSPIRATIONAL: “Decide to do something that will have eternal consequences” Elder Richard G. Scott
SPIRITUAL: “Tell a man there are a trillion stars in the sky and he’ll believe you. Tell a man there’s wet paint on the wall and he’ll touch it just to see for himself.” I love this quote by Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf from the most recent general conference because it is SO true! Sometimes it is so hard for us to believe the simple things in life because we can’t see past the depths of our trials or the dreary and dark cloud of doubt. But one thing we should always believe in are the Savior’s promises in the scriptures. If He says we will be happy-we will be happy. If He says we will be comforted during our trials-we will be comforted during our trials. How do we know this? Because HE SAID IT :). All things will come to pass according to our faith. So my challenge for you this week is to read the promises of the Savior in the scriptures and just BELIEVE!
PICTURES: Pictures of me in the rain and by the sea (as close as I can get), also a picture of my dinner at one of the members house (octopus and dried fish), and a picture of our zone.
As always, thank you for your continued support as I serve the Lord as Sister Moyes. I love being a missionary and I love all the people in my life who have helped me spiritually, emotionally, financially and mentally to get here! I love hearing from you all! I can’t tell you how GRATEFUL I am that you send me letters and emails. It means the world to me while I’m a world away 😉
Talk story soon,
Love Sister “from one island to da other” Moyes
