Every missionary has a story of why they went on a mission.
My story involves a lot of prayer and wrestling with God, as Enos in the Book of Mormon relates, and it involves lots of reasons not to serve. The Great and Scariest reason, the sacrifice serving would be. I would leave my home and family, friends, school, work and favorite hobbies or activities.
However with fear and unknowing I went forth and responded to the answer I received, that is to serve a mission.
Now about a year later I am out here and the Sacrifice is nothing!! Yes it is difficult and hard.
BUT I love it! I love it because this Sacrifice is nowhere near and nothing compared to the greatest sacrifice.
The Sacrifice of our Savior.
I have learned so much about His love and Greatness. I know He loves each of us and that He has paid the price.
I am so grateful to be out here, Because what I thought would be my greatest SACRIFICE has become my greatest TREASURE.
