I got out of the office and im finally a normal missionary again. Im in Ploiesti, a cool little city outside of Bucharest. Its going to be a great transfer and im looking forward to the new responsibilities of being here.
Hope everyone has a great week!
This week i have been pondering change and leadership. I am desiring to become a good leader and example to other missionaries so that i can better be recognized as a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. The mission has changed me so much (i hope you all recognize me when i come home). I came from Nicasio Nango and have become someone who i am more proud of to say is called Elder Nicasio Nango. Im still not perfect and make a lot of mistakes but Jesus Christ has helped me become who i want to become and who He wants me to become through positive repentence.
During a leadership meeting i was able to hear the testimony of a missionary who didnt start off with the best rep in the mission. After he explained some experiences he has had and goals he has set, he bore a powerful testimony of change. And everyone in the room could tell that he wasnt the same missionary he was before. He had used the atonement of Christ to allow him to become who God wanted him to be. To become a powerful representative of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Through the Atonement we can become more. "We can do more than just exist." We can make a positive change in ourselves and in others. It is possible.
