I know this church is true. It is the best decision I've ever made to serve the Lord in this way. We all have weaknesses and imperfections, thank goodness the qualifications aren't perfection! All the Lord asks for is a desire to serve. When you have that desire, you are called to the work.
I love the Book of Mormon. I love this gospel It changes lifes. It brings hope, it brings change, it brings opportunities. It brings confidence adn I've seen some amazing amazing changes in people as they've gone from not believe God exists, to wanting to follow Christ and be baptized. I'm also met some of the strongest youth and members here, I've ever seen in my life. They make many sacrifices and hard decisions to serve the Lord, go to church, serve others, etc. I love this work. I love the Lord. I thank all of you for the prayers, love, support, time, and help you've given me. This is true. Pray everyday. I used to think that was hard to remember, now it's hard to go an hour without it. Read everyday. I used to (before the mission) skip and maybe read a couple times per week, now everyday we have one hour put aside and it still doesn't seem like enough most days. And, always go to church. Through the sacrament you get a new start and can renew your baptismal covenant. Go to the temple. I love you! I love the Lord. I'm so happy I can say, I represent the Lord Jesus Christ and my purpose is to invite others to come unto Him. I don't know how else to say it, except,
IT IS TRUE!!!
I love you all! I'll show you pictures next week.
See you when I see you!
Love, Sister Mikell Smith
