This area and the work we have done here is something I really do have pride in. For some reason I get really hard on myself and feel like my influence isn't really doing anything. But reading the missionary favorite Alma 26 saturday night, I felt of God's love. I read verse 31 which reads:
The whole chapter touched me. But this verse didn't hit me until Sunday. This Sunday I felt God's love for all of these people I have been able to influence. I saw all of these amazing people together at the church smiling and loving each other and building upon one another's Faith. Yesterday I was able to feel what 'the fruits of our labors' means. We are seeing so much good here. God is working here in Minburi.
What amazes me though with all going on is that I do nothing. I see so much good happening but I literally do nothing. I work, try to give my all, talk to people, try to have a good attitude, and do see good outcomes. But all of the effects, I know aren't even me. I can understand why missionaries say it and I used to always think it was so cliche. But its real. God does everything. He's just giving us an opportunity to work and feel good about ourselves haha. All glory be to God, for I am nothing. Yet, he makes me feel of importance and uses me for my own good.
