This week was a struggle

This week. Man. This week was a struggle. But we are starting a new one and that's what I'm happy about! 

We have been working a lot on finding new people to teach. So that has been the goal of the last week and this new week.

It has been really cold here in Georgetown. Supposed to snow tomorrow and wednesday... Hopefully our double wide can handle it! :) 

Something I've really learned about this week is the Atonement and how real it is. I'm not perfect. Not even close. But through the atonement we can gain that step closer to perfection. And the great thing is the atonement can be used for more than just cleansing ourselves from sin! It can be used in all situations of trouble. Jesus Christ loves you. He does. He did what he did in the Garden of Gethsemane so you wouldn't have to feel the sting that comes with living a mortal life. He did that so you wouldn't have to suffer. The price of sin has already been paid. Please don't pay double. Don't procrastinate the day of repentance. Help and happiness are on the other side. Just do your best and rely on Jesus Christ. Through him you can gain strength, humility, comfort, courage. The list goes on. Use the atonement. It is for you. It is meant to be used. The atonement is the light at the end of the tunnel. It's the knowledge that the sun will rise in the morning after a long, dark night.

I know the atonement of Jesus Christ is real. I know of the joy and hope it can bring us. Use it.

I love you all. And I am so grateful to be a missionary. I love being a missionary. 
Love, Sister Broadbent :)
