I love me some missionaries! :) I'm totally the same way.It's crazy how many of them are gone. And how much I now think about missionaries.There are suddenly like a million and a half scriptures that apply to missionary work that never did before.. It's weird.
EXACTLY!!! I feel like I'm always surrounded by missionary work and I'm constantly thinking about it! :)
love this - i'm mailing my missionary package tomorrow :) my little brothers birthday was last week :)
It's SOOO great, isn't it?! Missionaries rock my world!! I'm praying for that brother of yours!
It really is insane how we think that missions are so distant, and then before we know it, our missionaries are out serving! One of my dearest friends is leaving day after tomorrow, and a few others won't be far behind him! It all teaches me not to take advantage of these wonderful guys while their still here, and to prepare myself now to be worthy of the kind of men they are - and who knows? I may end up marrying one of them. It's also very exciting having missionaries to write!! And I'm with Elise - I love me some missionaries; especially those returned ones. ;)Keep praying, Elisabeth! You're so sweet, and such a good example. :)
The scriptures do a total 180 when you're a missionary. I'd sit there and think "why on earth did I not see this in the scriptures before?" Answer: because the scriptures are what you make them. It's all about how you apply it to your own life.
