I love Mondays as I get to read emails from my brother who is serving a mission in London, England! He is serving in a very interesting part of England. The Lord is teaching him many lessons that will last him a lifetime. Today’s email held a story that shows his testimony and his firm stand as a witness of our Savior Jesus Christ. Here is an except from his email:
|"I can always find a bull, even in England"|
My brother was able to walk away from this experience knowing who he is and not be ashamed to stand for truth. My favorite part was he walked away with a smile. He did not let that experience bring him down or feel to hide. This brings me to ask, “Are we willing to not be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ?” If you’re preparing to serve a mission I would ask you to read or watch the talk by Elder Jeffery R. Holland titled “The Cost—and Blessings—of Discipleship” which fits perfectly to what my brother experienced. If you returned home from a mission—the cost and blessings of discipleship does not end when you step onto the plane ride home. You have to keep pressing forward and do hard things.
