There are storms to swim through that are so daunting that they nearly drown the missionary.
The love you send can strengthen and lift that missionary.
(If you haven’t seen the movie about his mission called “The Other Side of Heaven”, it’s a classic).
Consider his story of how true love motivated him and even saved his life while he was serving a full-time mission. Missionaries aren’t supposed to swim.’ But swim I must if I wished to stay alive.
His goal with this blog is to help people know how they can live the gospel while living their dreams.It is so good to have support with situations like mine. I´ve had great men call me, make me feel on top of the world and then disappear on me.So Dan and I have been dating on and off for the last two months. And me being the woman I was, I always called them when they disappeared (I didn´t have Sami Wunder helping me back then).And I also know – absolutely – that if you apply the above principles of drawing closer to them spiritually more than any other thing, you will come closer than you ever could have by being a romantic distraction. The closer you become spiritually (during their mission and after they return), the stronger your bonds will be.I conclude with Elder Holland’s words: “You want capability, safety, and security in dating and romance, in married life and eternity? Be a genuine, committed, word-and-deed Latter-day Saint.As I was going down for what could have been the last time, the Lord infused into my mind and heart a deep feeling of love for a very special person. Even though she was 8,000 miles away, the power of that love came rushing across those miles and, penetrating time and space, reached down and pulled me up—lifted me from the depths of darkness, despair, and death and brought me up to light and life and hope.
