Week 71

Hey Y'all!
It was a great week, we had fun and went hiking!!!
So I got many pictures to share but first a spiritual thought.
Alma 29:8-10
For behold, the Lord doth grant unto all nations, of their own nation and tongue , to teach his word, yea, in wisdom, all that he seeth fit that they should have; therefore we see that the Lord doth counsel in wisdom, according to that which is just and true. 
I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy. 
And behold, when I see many of my brethren truly penitent, and coming to the Lord their God, then is my soul filled with joy; then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do I remember his merciful arm which he extended towards me. 

I love these verses I read today. They are how I feel, I know that the Lord has called me to be His voice here, to teach Repentance. 
I know that seeing others take and live the gospel is what brings me the most joy.
I love being here and I love the people. I am sad the lack of time but the next 8 weeks will be the best.

I got called to train a new missionary my last 7 weeks! 
I am excited and of course a little nervous but I know the Lord will send us blessings.

Take care and Enjoy the week!

Week 70

Oh my, I just counted how many weeks sisters get on their mission...its about 78....and look Im at 70! ahhhhh
Well The mission is amazing! I absolutely love all it comes with.
The hard times, the joyful times. Its all so fulfilling and I am sad the time is slim but I have accomplished so much here. I have changed so much here! I feel so great, so happy. Its amazing what the gospel does for our lives.
I don;t have much to say today but I do want to give an invitation.
For those who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; keep studying the gospel and about Christ life, and apply what He taught.
and For those who are not members! Take the lessons from the missionaries, email me I'll set you up!
I am not kidding the message we share about the Savior, Jesus Christ is life changing, its fulfilling, its truth!
I love it, and I hope I show I live. I hope I can be a good example of living the gospel.
Jesus Christ lives today and is what truly beings us lasting Joy and Happiness.
There is 3 things to Happiness.
1 Something to Do
2 Something to Love
3 Something to Hope For

and the Gospel of Jesus Christ supplies that all.

I love you all.
Hope you have a great week,
Till next time,

Week 69

This week oh my has been crazy.
So much opposition therefore I have looked to the Lord.
This work is amazing, mostly because of all that the adversary tries to throw at it and it still lives and thrives on.
I have felt much opposition this week, a lot!
The weight of not being perfect is heavy.
I think all missionaries feel this at some point or another, that you just aren't cutting it.
BUT this is the adversary speaking, he is the only one trying to discourage us, the only one trying to weigh us down so that we turn away from this great work.
I have prayed a lot! Mostly for understanding and strength to keep pushing through.
Of course I have weaknesses that need improving we all do! But thats why the Lord has chosen us to do His work. He chooses the weak and simple to fulfill his purpose because it makes Us better!
He cares for all of us and through all our trials it shapes us to be more like Him.
Christ went through all that we go through, He knows and understands.
He is there to bear our burdens, to lift us, because He overcame.
I love this, it took me ages to figure this out. But the Lord truly cares. He lives!
I know He is involved in this world amongst the chaos. He is here being our light.
We just got to follow Him.
I hope you all have the best week. :)
I send my love,
Sister Libbey

Week 68

Hey! its 2016!!!! ahhhh
Well here we are, everyone setting goals for the new year, hoping to change all at once!
I like goals but I like the small ones you can do per week and gradually progress.
I feel like I have such little time here now on my mission and now is my time to really really focus more than ever before!
I am excited for this month, last month with all our tracting we found many people and now we get to go back and teach! Pray they will feel the spirit and the true of our message!
I love the gospel the simplicity of it all. The knowledge and JOY it brings.
It;s changed my lifes and its fun to look back and see the changes that have come in my life and the huge difference it has made.
This year I hope I can keep it all, keep the spirit and the gospel always.
A scripture that comes to mind is a simple one, about the people of Nephi
2 Nephi 5:27
"And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness."
I hope you all are choosing to be happy. I know I will! Or try to!
Have a great week and send me a letter if you please.
