Week #49

Well hello my dearest family and friends,

This week was pretty cool.
Elder Gubbay and I got to do some stuff that most missionaries would not have the privilege to do.

We went to an island called Corsica and we did missionary work there for 3 days.
It was pretty awesome.
It was super super hot there, 30 degrees, and we had a ton of fun talking to people about our Saviour.
We met some of the members that live on the island and we also got a tour of their chapel.
We will be putting missionaries on this island next transfer, so Elder Gubbay and I went to see how missionary work is like there.
We met tons of families and it was just awesome talking to them. They we very opened and very nice, it was delightful.

We had another great week with the Roney family.
They also came to the island and it is always a fun time when you are traveling with a family.
President is so so funny. We are always laughing and he always has something funny to say.
He has an incredible talent to be very personable with people in like 3 seconds.
It is pretty awesome to watch people start smiling and laughing as they talk to him.

I love reading the Book of Mormon.
It is incredible how often and how powerfully it testifies of Jesus Christ.
It is wonderful to see the change of heart that occurs because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
I love reading about how there pains and sorrows are turned into joy.
I love how they then realize it was all because of Jesus Christ that they were able to repent and change.
It is super cool to see how there whole goal in writing scripture is to help future generations come unto the living Christ.

I am so grateful for my mission as I have really come to see life in a whole new way.
I have really come to better understand what the Gospel of Jesus Christ really is.
I have come to better understand the Saviour Jesus Christ.
I have found a new joy in searching the scriptures for testimonies borne of Him, lives changed by Him and ultimate happiness found in following Him.
His number 1 concern is our Happiness.

Love you,

Elder Ioannidis
