2 Years is exactly how long a mission needs to be. This has been the most influential and strong learning experiences of my life. I feel like I could write volumes on what I have learned from each of my days here in South Florida, it’s amazing. One thing that strikes me as really neato is how in the 4 Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) Only 52 days are covered of the Savior’s life, and in those are recorded 37 miracles. What John said in John 21: 25 is spot on
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that not even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.”
I know I am no where near the caliber or quality of person that Jesus Christ is, but I am striving to be. I believe that the mission is the training wheels for life. No it’s time to really ride, to take all the practice, all the power and knowledge and Spirit and testimony and work ethic and apply it into being a true latter-day saint.
I love being a missionary. It is hard to go home, because then I don’t get the blessing to do this every day. But, change is good. We need change because change is progression.
