Sister Gill & I have been working on GROWING together! Which has been one of the best things!!! To do this we have been noticing & focusing on going for the things that make us feel UNcomfortable in missionary work....because there is NO growth in the comfy and NO comfy in the GROWTH!!!
Because of this goal our past week has been full of things like:
-Knocking doors at 8:45 pm.... (people like their evening hours)
-Removing SPIDERS from our home for Sister Gill #STILLUNCOMFY #SOS #HELLOSPRING
-Pushing ourselves with time management!
-Running further distances in the morning
-Roleplays with members!!
Haha so here is a little story for you all....
...We were walking back to our car through a parking lot & passed a cute older lady. When we got back to our car & were sitting in our seats, Sister Gill turned to me and said "Hey I think I heard that lady say "God"...should we go ask her why she said His name?" We looked at eachother and we BOTH knew what we needed to do. (a bit uncomfortable? YES! Our fingers were crossed that she was talking about Him and not using His name in vain) So we unbuckled our seatbelts, walked up to her & explained that we are the sister missionaries, we heard her say Gods name and wanted to ask her why He is important to her!! We were able to share with her about the message of The Restoration in the parking lot! Our hearts were FULL of gratitude to Heavenly Father for placing her in our path & we thanked Him for helping us be BRAVE.
Cheers to doing things that make us a little uncomfy in this life! I testify that our Heavenly Father wont allow us to fail as we strive to follow in our Saviors footsteps. HE will help us be BRAVE to do the things that are kinda uncomfy. Let us all choose to press forward with FAITH and kick that fear to the curb!
Have a WONDERFUL week.
LOVE + LIGHT,
Sister Worley :)
