This will be the picture on my "missionary plaque" hanging on the wall at church while I'm away :) The scripture I chose to be on it is Omni 26: "And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."
I'm extremely nervous... often we forget that missionaries are human too! We're not just faces and nametags! It's scary leaving everything I know for 18 months, to spread the messege about Christ to people who may or may not accept me or even like me... but, I am also at peace with my decision to serve the Lord in Pocatello, and to do my very best :) I feel ready. I don't have to be perfect, only try my hardest every day- I can do this!! Ahh! :)
