Life Update -- Feb 25,2020

Greüzi family and friends!!!! (Es gibt deutsch unten) Quick little update:

I've spent 6 months here in wonderful Basel and I've loved every moment. Every memory. Every person. Absolut alles. I'm now heading to Münich, Germany! I'm grateful for the opportunity to expand my heart and experience more.

Ya know missionary life is crazy. I can tell you the schedule and life of all the people we are teaching but i couldn't tell you the first thing about my life after the mission... other than imma dance somewhere, somehow. & I wouldn't want to be anywhere else doing anything other than serving and loving as Christ did. The amount of pure joy that I recieve from loving others and absolutely losing myself in the Lord's work is ridiculous. It brings fulfillment because it is what life is all about. & there is just no other experience that can compare to immersing myself in Christ's light and love, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

My companion asked me something... she asked if it is hard to not think about life after the mission and what i'm going to do and how, usw. ect. I thought about it for a little bit and came to the conclusion that (natürlich) it's hard, but God wanted me on this mission, and the more I sacrifice now, the more blessings I recieve later. Somw things might seem like sacrifices at first but, just like my mission is proving, we usuallt recieve far more than we ever sacrificed. Everything important requires sacrifice. & the most important thing I can think of is the work of God. "For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." Moses 1:39

I'd really love to hear from each and everyone of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Friendships and connections are my favorite part of life and i'm grateful for each of you!!!

Ich möchte etwas zu jedem sagen, der bei mir in Basel war. Vielen vielen vielen Dank!!!!! Ihr seid soo toll! Ihr seid so so tief in meinem Herzen. Ich konnte mir nicht vorstellen, was mein Leben ohne euch wäre. All meine Liebe und Gebete. Es tut weh, euch zu verlassen. Aber es ist nur auf Wiedersehen.

Liebe Grüße,

Sister Smith

"Sometimes we are asked to submit to ongoing ambiguity or to a grueling lesson we would prefer not to learn. Such moments provide us with the opportunity to realize one of the purposes of our mortal experience: to choose to trust Him to bless us with the experiences that we need rather than the experiences we might want."
