Refiners Fire

This week was so long, so wet, so hot and so spiritual!!!!

It was pouring one day and then blazing hot the next. I was seriously losing my mind. The work was really slow this week. Cant blame it on the area because it was us. We had a really great training this week. President Balli spoke about our testimonies on the atonement. How when we bear them we should just talk about how Christ suffered on the cross but also in the Garden of Gethsemane. Do we truly understand what the Saviour did for us? It really hit me and I just wanted to learn more about Christ and more about the love he has for all of us.

We were also blessed to have Stake Conference this week. I dont think I have ever loved a Stake Conference so much. Tamaki is the best. We had a member of the 70 present Elder Cummings. He said heaps but there are a few things I want to share with all of you..
Before Christ completed the atonement He always says that we must be perfect as the father is, but once he did fulfill what he needed to he told us to be perfect as He is and as the Father is. Why? because Christ became perfect, he was complete. It was just a cool thing for me to learn. The Saviour is perfect and we do need to become more like him. Another thing being stressed in our mission at the moment is Repentance. Elder Cummings talked a bit on that. He shared a story of how he was gardening for 8 hours. There was a stone in his shoe that he didnt want to remove cause he was lazy. So when he took off his boot he had a blister. That blister is like us. If we just continue to push our sin to the side or only half-heartedly repent it isnt full or complete repentance. It continues to get worse and worse. Let us all remember what the Saviour did for us. To truly repent of our sins and do better and do more. It might have been a long week work wise but we were completely uplifted by our wonderful leaders. I love you all and hope you have an amazing week.

Kia kaha,
