so this week marks my 6 months of being a missionary! i am amazed that the time has gone by so quickly. I never thought that i would be here looking back and saying wow i am a missionary i have served the Lord with all my heart might mind and strength for the past 6 months!
a story from the bible that i often share with the people that i teach it is the story of peter walking on the water in matthew 14: 26-31
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
we need to be like peter he had the faith to follow jesus christ to get out of the boat and walk to the savior. As long as we keep an eye single to the savior that when the storms and the high waves of life beat upon us we will be able to stay above the water but in those times of struggle when we do begin to sink the scriptures say that the Lord immediately stretched forth his hand and caught him." the savior will be there he will not wait to help us as long as we call to him. Jesus Christ walked on the same stormy sea as peter did the savior has gone through all that we have and will go through in our lives. he will alway be there to lift us and help us.
my missoion has been amazing these few short months i have had hard times and really good times and my savior has been there through them all and i know that he will be there for me through out the next year of my mission :)
love you guys take care!
