I love preparing péople to be baptized and seeing them change their lives! its the best work to be involved in! As i think about my work as a missionary i feel really grateful for this unique opportunity i have. its not everyday that you get to study the scriptures in depth and see miracles happen in the lives of others as well as your own. i was studying in Helaman and i came across this scripture that i liked a lot that boosted me up.
4 Blessed art thou, Nephi (Elder___), for those things which thou hast done; for I have beheld how thou hast with unwearyingness declared the word, which I have given unto thee, unto this people. And thou hast not feared them, and hast not sought thine own life, but hast sought my will, and to keep my commandments.
5 And now, because thou hast done this with such unwearyingness, behold, I will bless thee forever; and I will make thee mighty in word and in deed, in faith and in works; yea, even that all things shall be done unto thee according to thy word, for thou shalt not ask that which is contrary to my will.
This scripture really can help motivate anyone to keep God´s commandments. God always promises that if we keep his commandments we will be greatly blessed. I am grateful for that promise. I know that the commandments of God are blessings. we shouldn't see them as restrictions because in reality they are blessings and protection. I know that God loves us and gives us commandments because he loves us. i know that difficulties are a test of our faith and obedience to God´s commandments.
