Selwin Reports In

Sister Barrow is getting ready to go home. She loves 
ninjas, high fives and has been a great missionary.
Well, guess I'm not being transferred. Oh, yeah! I'm staying with my companion Elder Muhile, as well, so double oh yeahs. The week has been a tough one.  Because it was the week before transfers we worked extra hard, but to no avail.  It was honestly so discouraging, because normally the week before transfers is one where the work slows altogether, but we wanted to change that.  We did, but we had hoped for more success.

But there is always a bright side to everything.  We actually had a potential investigator text us and schedule a meeting which made my week.  Forget about everything else that happened.  This was a miracle. There's always going to be ups and downs in this life but it's up to you whether you get back up or keep laying down.  My advice is to keep getting up. Our Heavenly Father knows us personally and knows our needs.  If we have faith and trust in Him things will get better … then you best believe they will.

My peeps ...
This gospel is so amazing and offers us the opportunity to get nearer to God.  In 2 Nephi 31:20 we are promised if we endure to the end we shall have eternal life. Thus it is with everything we face in this life.  We just have to keep pressing forward and then “ye will feel the love of your Father in Heaven,” so don't give up. Our Savior Jesus Christ made the ultimate sacrifice for us and we owe him everything for it, but all He asks is we simply endure to the end, see things out and then we will have everlasting joy.

I just found out my uncle has passed away and even though I'm feeling sad and down right now, I know there is still hope and all is not lost. I will press on and I encourage you to do the same, no matter what you’re facing in this life.  I love and miss you all.
