This week, like every week in Corona, was busy! We started off last week with Zone Conference! The Stake President in Corona came and spoke to us. He shared a crazy story about a time when he was in the special forces and something went wrong on his mission, and those that were negative lost their lives. Kind of a crazy story to share in a room full of missionaries! I thought about that story throughout the week and analyzed how important it is to have a positive attitude in missionary work and in life. Corona has a reputation in the mission as being a hard area to do missionary work. One of the former AP’s recently got transferred here into the hardest ward to find people to teach. A ward where the old missionaries had a goal of picking up 2 new investigators a week to now a solid 10. And they continue to go above and beyond that each week. Why are hope and faith important? I know that without the two, working as a missionary and being in the outside world is hard. Trials will come in our lives and what do we have to help us when they do? I know that we have the Lord Jesus Christ on our side to help us as we remain hopeful and faithful. 🙂
I also went on exchanges this week to Lake Elsinore! I always learn something new from each one and I think this one helped me love the area I’m serving in more!
We were able to do some service at an elementary school this week by helping them make boards to hold children’s backpacks. It was super fun and we are going back this week to finish. They were so appreciative!
We also had a stake missionary breakfast early Saturday morning. We are really seeing improvements in the stake as far as missionaries go and we really felt the love the leadership had for us. They are so motivated to strengthen Corona!!
We also went to the Arcadia Mission Office because Sister Roberts had a doctor’s appointment with a doctor that meets with all of the Southern California missionaries.
Our Zone activity this morning was a BBQ at a members home with a crazy nice backyard!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
Love, Sister Meza
