The Ministry of Reconciliation

Dear family and friends,

Time is going faster.  Speaking long term of course, but also just talking about this hour of email time.  I swear the hour keeps getting shorter and shorter haha.  Let me blitz through some of my stuff for this week! was a pretty average week actually.  Which was really welcome after a crazy week last week.

I guess I would just say that I´m loving my time in Bellamar with Elder McMillan.  It´s really fun to just put 100% effort and focus into the work.  It´s almost like a bike, with your companionship as the chain.  When you have to keep stopping to fix the chain and get on the same page with your companion, you can´t pick up any momentum! It´s super nice to have a well working "chain" and pick up lots of momentum in the work.  If that analogy makes any sense...

I read this week in 2 Corinthians where it says, "And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation." The ministry of reconciliation!! I love it.  I´m so so thankful for the gospel and atonement of Jesus Christ, which reconciles us to God on terms of our faithfulness and repentance.  And I´m also grateful for the trust Heavenly Father has in us, imperfect children, to give to us the ministry of reconciliation! Helping others reconcile themselves to God through his Beloved Son´s gospel.  It´s been motivating me this week.

Sorry for the lack of material in this email! Thank you all so much for your emails, pictures, and prayers of support and love.  I love you all so much!!
