This week has been harder than most, but I love being a missionary more than ever! Sister Springer and I are working well with each other and I love being her companion. She has a love for the people that really influences her missionary work in a positive way!
This week we were asked to speak in the Idyllwild Branch. Sunday morning comes along and Sister Springer wakes up with pink eye. So, luckily, we found a member of the Anza Branch to take me to church. When we showed up, it turned out there was only one Priesthood holder there so they couldn’t pass the sacrament. They had to switch all the hours of church around and so sacrament ended up being last. Because I was so busy during the week I only had Sunday morning to prepare for my talk, that I ended up giving to a chapel filled to the max…..with 6 people. 🙂
I talked about the first great commandment, to love God with all your heart. I know that all we can give is our hearts because everything else is already His. If we follow this great commandment, all the other commandments will be easier as we keep an eternal perspective. I felt the spirit so strong in that humble chapel and I pray that one day it will grow into a mighty ward!
I love this area!
Love, Sister Meza
