This week, Elder Avalos left to go home because he finished his mission. It was an incredible blessing to be his companion for a little bit again because I learned a ton from him. It was pretty sad, but it's all good! The thing I am most grateful for though was a conversation that we had one of the last nights he was here, that really changed my whole attitude about my mission and was exactly what I needed to hear. He said "You can serve a mission in 2 ways: just to get through it, or have the attitude that whatever happens youre going to give it all for the Lord." And I feel like that is exactly the kind of attitude I need to have, and has helped me so much since then. Really, nothing can stop me from doing the will of the Lord except for me! And that is how I need to be! That conversation did so much for me!
I was studying a lot this past week on charity! Everyone knows that charity is the pure love of Christ, but what is charity really?? I have come to realize that like faith, we must exercise our Charity to make it complete! Charity cannot be manifested without action.
