There Is No Other Work Like This Work

            Things are SO fast-paced in the mission now – it’s nuts! Time is flying by and I can’t remember a moment when I was not busy! I am sure this is just the beginning of it all as well.
            I love the mission field, it’s a crazy place.  It can be hard -- sometimes I feel like I have been thrown into the deep end of the pool and I just want to swim to the side and hold on, and other times I see how much love I have for people here and how I can see the gospel bless my life and absolutely bless the lives of others.  There is no other work like this work.
            We had a lesson with a girl named Emily this week.  Last week we were tracting in Rainham and we knocked on her door and she invited us in.  We talked a bit and gave her a Book of Mormon, asked her what is a question she had about life and then said that she could find the answer in the book.  This week when we came back ... she did! She found the answer.  She said her question was whether God answers and listens to our prayers.  She read Enos 1 and said she felt very peaceful and reassured after that. 
            This church is true! I know it is, and now our good friend Emily is coming to know the same. 
            Hope you all have a good week.
