A Backpack that’s Worn – pen, June 2011

The hard truth is, missionaries just have to wear backpacks. It’s ok to have a purse or shoulder bag or briefcase or what have you, but it’s just really hard to go without one sometimes when it is so heavy! This is among the usual in my backpack – my set of scriptures of course (the Bible and Book of Mormon), some pamphlets of many varieties (there are a variety of people with a variety of needs in the world you know), some cards with our number on it, my planner, some DVDS, a notebook, some free scriptures to give away, a book full of pictures of Christ to show children, and a water bottle to keep me hydrated. This is a lot of stuff. However, every last thing in this backpack of mine has a value that is priceless. In those books and pamphlets are truths that will bless and change the lives of countless generations and families. And on those DVDs and cards are references that unlock the door that leads to complete happiness. I do not mean to sound prideful at all, but I feel as though I have what is complete happiness because I have these things in my backpack, and I know of their great worth. Now all I need to figure out is how to share these things with others and make my big, worn backpack a little bit lighter.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
