18 Months: Why, What, and How

Wow! It's crazy to think that I am almost here! I was assigned to the South Carolina Columbia Mission nearly 4 months ago and now I am a week away. Many of you may not know what exactly a mission is. So here is why I am going, what I will be doing, and how I will doing it:

WHY: I believe that God is our Heavenly Father and that we are His children. As such, I know that He loves us very much and wants the best for us. He has given the gospel of Jesus Christ to help us to return to live with Him again someday and to be happy. This simple knowledge has blessed and changed my life so much. It has made me into the person I am today. I want others to have the chance to come to know God and His Son Jesus Christ and to just be happy!  

WHAT: I will be going around South Carolina inviting others to come unto Christ. This means that I will be doing what I believe Christ would do. I will be helping others (regardless of religion) by doing service for them and the community while also teaching them of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

HOW: I am going to be living in South Carolina knocking on doors, talking to strangers, and meeting everyone that I can so that I can tell them about Jesus Christ. I will be getting up at 6:30 am every morning and going to bed at 10:30 pm every day. During this time, I will not be working, dating, or attending school - all in order to focus more on my missionary work. This is purely volunteer and is paid for by each missionary. My family and I have worked hard to save up the funds so that I can take this time to serve the Lord. I feel very blessed!
