I have to be honest, sometimes I feel like I am being stretched more than I can handle! We teach CONSTANTLY, it’s hard to be on all the time. I despair when I think how much better Jesus would be doing all of this if He were here! I mean, this is the work of salvation! And I am so weak! I marvel that despite everything I lack, God lets me participate. For all that I am discovering about myself and about Him through this service, I am so grateful!
Something Sister Dew shared with us in Relief Society in the MTC has really helped me. She was in an interview with President Hinckley and He said, “How are you doing Sherri?”and she said, “Good, but I wish I were smarter.” And he responded, “I wish you were smarter too!” and then he got very serious and said, “Actually, I wish we were all smarter.”
I wish I were smarter too! But I am coming to find that service in the church is the best medicine for all that we lack. This is, after all, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints– it’s both His and ours! And through our service we become not only saints, but eventually like Him!
That’s all for now! I love you all! Thank you for your faith and prayers in my behalf! Keep ’em comin’!
