This week was great. Lots of things worked out and it was pretty good. Although it did seem like a week of everyone telling me their bad opinions of the church but thats like going up to walt disney and trying to tell him Disney is dumb haha. It really made me think about this church on a deeper level. More than just a members view of the church. Lets just pretend some one created a game plan to live a happy life and stay out of trouble and have a happy family and teach them to be healthy and to have a happy life and guess what? you guessed it im just talking about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Lets just say I am wrong. This church isnt true somehow the Book of Mormon is fake and the 16 million people that have felt the truth of the Book of Mormon are all wrong, somehow we just messed up and its all not true. Then you look back at the age on 90 and you think a dash of regret will arise because you followed Gods plan and was healthy and had a happy family and focused on Gods perspective of you more than that one random person in your ward that seems to judge you like crazy but you know its not the people that define Gods church its you who defines Gods church. Its not here to make us feel judged by other members or put religious competition in the lives of people. Sadly its like that in lots of places in the church but thats the people not Gods plan Thats not God and its not his fault hes got to work with a bunch of imperfect people to run his church. Its true and i have been giving everything the last year to it. Its changed my life. The world is hard and its not the person who left the churchs fault for leaving. Its a hard world. Dont beat yourself up at the first mistake. Thats why we have the atonement. Its a circle of trial and error not a straight line to perfection. Be a rock Be strong Be smart. And dont you dare forget those moments where you felt the spirit. I love you all. I pray for you. Keep going and hold fast to the foundation you are building. If its weak hold on to mine. I promise the storms pass and the good times come, God will not forsake us after all we can do.
Love elder Hunsaker
This week has been good. I am in a new area and a new comp and new district and new everything. I can already tell this is going to be a good area. With different responsibilities and stuff i have had to really replace time that i spent talking or eating or other stuff (daydreaming haha) with preparing for trainings and calling people. At first i was nervous and thought i needed some of the worldly stuff to be happy and stay normal in the mission field but the more and more I give to the Savior the more i truly feel happy. Lately as a study the Plan of Salvation i realize more and more that the most important thing we can do in this life is build habits and a attitude that would feel completely comfortable in the celestial kingdom. And as we let the worldly things go and replace them with joy from the lords gifts only then we can be truly happy. love you all so much. I pray for you.
