Any successful missionary wants to learn as much as he/she can before heading out into the field.
Some questions I have heard being asked are:
How do I prepare for a mission?
Where do I start?
What should I focus most on?
How will I know when I am ready?
You probably have asked one or all (or more!) of these questions (if you have more questions, please comment down below!) So let’s talk about them!!! Continue reading
Hey guys, after 18 awesome months, I’m baaaaccck!!
It’s been a whole transfer since I got home from my mission but let’s be real, I’m just getting back into this whole technology thing.
Can I just say (and I’ll say it quickly) it’s true. All of it. THE BEST 18 MONTHS OF LIFE, so far:) But it’s also true they won’t be the only ‘best months’.
So I’ll be posting lots more now that ‘I really know’ (jk, you never really know) and have experienced it for myself. But last week in my YSA ward a couple kids announced their mission calls ( 😀 ) and I offered them some things I learned while on my mission before I started my talk. So here are my
Four Simple Tips for a Great Mission:
Never delay a prompting. Make that decision now or you’ll chicken out in the heat of the moment. No joke.
Write in your journal everyday. Everyday. You’ll regret doing it any other way:)
Expect to baptize. A LOT. No matter where you are. “The field is white” only means one thing. HARVEST.
Finally, don’t just work hard. Learn real growth and consecration. More on that coming soon.
Serving a mission has been the best decision I’ve ever made, (so far:) Nothing is better than being a full-time, consecrated servant of the Lord. And nothing is sweeter than learning that that can happen anytime, anywhere – meaning that once you’re released, it doesn’t end. He calls us all.
Til next time,
Any else have to depend upon themselves the majority of the time to find food?
😦 Me too. I might starve. All I’ll be eating in Jamaica is avocados the size of your face and fruit (mango) smoothies. And I’m ok with that.
But maybe to get a little more well-rounded diet, I gathered some pretty easy peesy recipes of all sorts that I’m gonna use and you can too! There are three 3×5 recipes on each page so you can print them as is or have them be in a recipe box!
Warning: You may be like holy cow is there enough avocado and mango recipes on here??? Well, that’s what’s in Jamaica and I’m gonna be eating a lot of them!!!! If you aren’t, sorry. (Not sorry that you have to have so many recipes sorry that you can’t use them:) I LOVE avocados and mangoes (is that how you spell that?) and any fruit for that matter.
Here ya go!!
280+ Easy Recipes
O yes, also, at the end there’s a few pages (not 3×5) of smoothies and other stuff that I got off a website just like that aaand I did not exactly go through all of them so, if one calls for like vodka or somethin, don’t look at me.
Yay!!! I feel like I say that word a lot but, I’m excited!!! Here are 38 pages worth of workouts for you! All are self-explanatory, most are visual, some are motivational sayings/funnies, but they will all help you be your best self on the mission – physically speaking that is. One of my fav sayings is: Sweat for 1 hour or be dead for 24. Seriously, exercise is a very important part of the equation to becoming a stellar missionary. Nuff said.
WORKOUTS – get em here.
YOU MAY cut them out and put them in a lovely little notebook like I did here
and sort them…my categories are 1. upper body, 2. core, 3. lower body, 4. whole body/cardio, & 5. yoga/stretching.
I am so stoked to use these bad boys on the mish. And and and, and then!.. for many more years to come………..
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!
