Family, I LOVED the package! Danielle, THANK YOU for the cookies!! I loved them :D. Oh, family, you'll also be "proud" to read that I've had more sugar in the MTC than probably any time of my LIFE. I'm enjoying my food haha :). Ok, and anyone reading this, send missionaries packages. It's better than Christmas as many RM's know :).
I thought back to that thing I needed to change and finally decided to take action and shift. I talked to one of my German teachers about it for like the third time and, NOT kidding, SECONDS after we talked, I hear from our district leader (who picks up the mail) that there's a small package for me. I go back into our classroom and find a small envelope package from Sister KING from Espania!! Of all people, your best friend who's also on a mission is one of the best you can hear from. I knew immediately that it was a sign from the Lord that choosing to follow that ever so slight prompting was another puzzle piece of being exactly obedient. Father knew that I was testing out and learning exactly WHAT being exactly obedience entails. I was overcome with joy and peace. Ok, for the LIFE of me I couldn't find that scripture that says, As soon as you follow the spirit, He doth immediately bless you in D&C. But THAT one is what came to mind. I know the Lord wants us to see and understand that being obedient is a HAPPY thing! It's not to aggravate us. I knew that, but I'm now seeing it in the woodwork.
