Called To Serve

Family and Friends!!
Hope everyone is going well! Things here in Creswell Oregon are awesome! My companion Sister Olson and I sure love this cute lil town. We are seeing miracles everyday! 
This past Wednesday we were able to attend a Relief Society activity and meet some of the wonderful sisters in the ward. They each came with 3 of their favorite things and just things that they enjoy doing. One of the sisters favorite things was her scriptures with her name badge clipped on them. She was a missionary some time ago and made me think of the talk by Elder Anderson, "It's a Miracle." He says, "Brothers and sisters, as surely as the Lord has inspired more missionaries to serve, He is also awakening the minds and opening the hearts of more good and honest people to receive His missionaries. You already know them or will know them. They are in your family and live in your neighborhood. They walk past you on the street, sit by you in school, and connect with you online. You too are an important part of this unfolding miracle.
If you’re not a full-time missionary with a missionary badge pinned on your coat, now is the time to paint one on your heart—painted, as Paul said, “not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God” (2 Corinthians 3:3). And returned missionaries, find your old missionary tag. Don’t wear it, but put it where you can see it. The Lord needs you now more than ever to be an instrument in His hands. All of us have a contribution to make to this miracle." 
Some of you, like one of the Relief Society members here, have your name tag where you can see it everyday. That reminder of the experiences you had on your mission. To remind you of the people you helped bring to the gospel. Each of you, whether you are a returned missionary or not can have your own name tag written on your hearts. As you do, Elder Anderson gives us a promise as we pray. He says,"Pray to your Heavenly Father. This is His sacred work. He will guide you in what to do. He will open doors, remove roadblocks, and help you over come obstacles. The Lord declared, “The voice of warning shall be unto all people, by the mouths of my disciples, … and none shall stay them.” testify that “the voice of the Lord [shall be] unto the ends of the earth,that all that will hear may hear.”33 It’s miracle. It is miracle. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen." This week you can invite others to "come and see." Love you all so much!!
