Yup, they booted me out of Park City!
I don't know yet where I will be going, but honestly, I am so excited I cant even stand it!
I had the opportunity to serve in Park City for 4 1/2 months and its been a great run. As much as I'd love to stay for so many reasons, from the people that I have met and learned from as well as taught I know that nobody ever grows in their comfort zone. I feel like I may have started to get comfortable, a little to comfortable, and we all know what happens when we get comfortable!
I thought of Elder Hollands talk "
I don't want to pick marigolds! Give me challenges! Rock that boat! So basically, Im excited for new experiences and opportunities to grow and learn.
I thought it was pretty interesting that the night before i found out i was getting transferred I had been reading another talk by, guess who- haha, that's right- Elder Holland!
Anyway, it was titled "The Best is Yet to Be"...how fitting haha
It was so perfect that I read it last night for a couple of reasons, one being that I was going to be getting transferred the next day. Its not always easy to "be where you are when you are there". We have cell phones and all these other objects that take us away from the here and now. Obviously I'm not on Facebook or Instagram since I'm on a mission, but our thoughts can also be a distraction. Just as much as any cellular device.
In his talk Elder Holland recalls the account of Lot's wife, what was it that she did that was so bad? It wasn't just that she looked back, it was that she yearned to be back.
I think of home, my family, and my friends, and if i do it long enough..i might as well be as effective as a pillar of salt. Elder Holland then makes the statement "FAITH points to the FUTURE"...A perfect example of this is Paul "
I am so grateful for these 18 months of my life that I can dedicate to the Lord, lessons like this, of looking forward with faith. I will carry them with me forever. I know that as we all " look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes "
our lives will be richly blessed.
I love my family, and I love the Lord, I hope you all have a great week!
Love sister Efnor
My view of Main Street Park City from the Tree- I have a feeling I might be back here before my mission is finished... Love this place!
