Its been a crazy week! We've been really busy and I've been stretched quite a bit which is good. Like Sister Rahlf taught us, "there's no growth in the comfort zone, and no comfort in the growth zone." I am thankful for these challenges. Had to say goodbye to some great friends who finished their missions, including my trainer, Elder Saguire! But then got to welcome a batch of great new missionaries who are excited for the work!This is now President and Sister Rahlf's last week in the mission. They've served amazingly these past three years and have been more than inspiring! I've learned so much from them and being able to serve alongside them has been a great privilege! Of all the lessons I've learned from President and Sister Rahlf, I think one of the most prominent will be Christlike love. They've demonstrated Christlike love in so many ways and are true servants of the Lord! I'll never forget them for sure!
"These are the many members I see, admire, and am grateful for. They are not seeking position, prominence, or fame, but each is earning a place in our Father’s kingdom by taking care of the business of everyday living. They are consistently doing the unnoticed, the unspectacular, but humbly and righteously doing the important. Challenges they have, but out of their bitter struggles they are able to find the sweetness that is so often the silent companion to adversity. This picture is duplicated hundreds of times in thousands of wards throughout the world. They are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."
