I'm currently trying to be more watchful and prayerful about my ability to serve others. I feel that I have not done a good job in the past and that I could widen my sphere of influence for good in a way that would please the Lord. Because this is a personal matter, I won't share specifics, but I do feel a great difference in my life and I feel so much happier and blessed because of the opportunities that have come my way to serve those around me!
Also, this talk brought back memories of an adult session of Stake Conference that we had a little while ago. We had an Area 70 with us and he did something that I found very thought provoking. He asked the full time missionaries to stand. The missionaries that had been called to our mission all stood. He stated that he felt that he had been misunderstood. He said that these were the part time missionaries. They would only be in our area between 18 and 24 months before leaving and returning home. He asked them to sit. He then asked for those who were living in our are full time to stand. We all stood. Then he explained that we were the true full time missionaries in our area. That really got me thinking.
Anyway, I created this printable with the missionary name tag in mind. I want to print it out and put it somewhere I can see it on a regular basis so that it reminds me to ask for help when I need it and also to remind me that I need to be more aware of how I can serve as a member missionary. I hope you can use it, too!
Here it is~
