Mission Division Business, Time at the Temple & Work is the Greatest Remedy


This week has been busy just like the last! Just a lot of time being in the office, I feel like there isn't much to report.

The thing that is keeping us so busy is the division in the mission. We have so much stuff to do. I have to do a lot of financial janitor work in the mission finance junk so that it is all pretty for the new mission. Hopefully this will be a somewhat relaxed P-Day for once.

This week we have been at the office pretty late taking care of all this stuff, which is not to exciting. But I kind of enjoy being busy here. It feels good to accomplish things.

Every six months we get to go to the temple, yesterday was that day. It was super awesome being there. The best part was the silence that is there in the celestial room. It is the most quiet place I have been in a long time.

Here is a cool quote that our mission president shared with us, that I find to be very true:

"If you are poor, work. If you are burdened with seemingly unfair responsibilities, work. If you are happy, work. Idleness gives room for doubts and fears. If disappointments come, keep right on working. If sorrow overwhelms you and loved ones seem not true, work. If health is threatened, work. When faith falters and reason fails, just work. When dreams are shattered and hope seems dead, work. Work as if your life were in peril. It really is. No matter what ails you, work. Work faithfully-work with faith. Work is the greatest remedy available for both mental and physical afflictions."

Work seems to be the solution to everything in life. I hope that you all have a great week working and all that. Cant wait to talk next week!

Love Elder Vaughan
