Kickball Epiphony

So I always have these weird epiphonies (sp?) in gym.

This week for district gym we played kickball, which was so fun and took me back to elementary school! Anyway, there I was in the outfield, minding my own business when what should happen but the ball come straight to me in the air and they all expected me to catch it. Well I was scared and doubtful and disbelieving, because I'm just not good at sporty stuff and catching things. And I'm sure you all saw this coming, but I didn't catch it.

And I Realized something. The only reason I didn't catch that ball is because I didn't believe I could. If I had believed I could catch it, and had the faith, chances are it prolly would have found its way in to my hands. Just some food for thought.

Oh yeah, and after that happened, I was up to kick and I was like I'm gonna get on base with this kick AND not get any of my team mates out! And I did a sweet little punt kick and it rocked.

I have found it is the same way with teaching and with most other things in life!! We are teaching in tagalog now and it is a running leap for me. When I believe that I can teach, doors open and I find sentences that I know how to say. When I get discouraged and doubtful, I get stuck worse. So yeah, there really is something in that first principle of the gospel, FAITH!!

Brother Slade said if you can do something about it, why worry? If you can't do something about it, why worry? So true.

I have returned again and again to 1 Nephi 3:7 "I will go and do". It is a sweet verse and no wonder they made a primary song out of it. We actually sang that primary song as a district right before our teaching appointment thursday and it was so powerful. I know the Lord provides a way!

Yesterday was awesome and busy.

My companionship taught the lesson for our district meeting. We focused on the Savior and it was awesome. You can never go wrong when you just bring everything back to the Savior. One of the major points was His love. A love that motivated everything He did for us. I have gained a strong testimony of that love over the past month and it is that love that motivates me. It is such a strength for me to know that even when I don't believe in myself, He believes in me. When I feel alone and confused and discouraged I know that He is always by my side and that He will never give up on me.

The sisters in our zone sang "When He comes again" In sacrament meeting. It was interesting.

We had another awesome fireside by Stephen B. Allen. He showed a whole bunch of the really old LDS commercials and talked about the messages in the little slogans for each one. It was actually very powerful.

A few that stood out to me:

"It's not who you aren't, it's who you are, and being yourself is being great"

"It is often the smallest moments that brign the greatest memories"

"When everything says you cant, believe in the part of you that says you can."

He said "The greatest fun that I know of in missionary work is followign the spirit--When you become the junior companion and let the Godhead become senior companion you will have so much fun because you'll never know what you're going to say or where you are going to go".

This week for service we got to clean the showers! We got to clean a disgusting amount of hair out of the drains. It was FANTASTIC!

Thanks Aunt B for the cookies!! They were delicious!

Thanks to everyone for your prayers, letters, and love!

I love you

The church is true!

Don't forget to read and pray!

Love sis Webre
