The Missionary Set Sail

Welcome to the Blog set up for Emily McRae! Emily's serving the Lord in the Washington, Tacoma mission. She set sail to the Missionary Training Center February 24th 2010. She will be in the Tacoma area for 18 months. This blog is updated and maintianed by one Molly McRae. The blog should display letters and photos of Emily while she is serving the Lord along with a quick update about transfers and mission companions. Hopefully the blog can keep you tied over until Emily is back to entertain once more.

This week I had the best miracle of my mission! Just kidding, but ti really is so amazing! I was transferred back to Sequim! I was told that I was coming back to it on saturday and my heart was so full of JOY! I was devastated when the mission president took me away from my trainer so quickly. I kinda got over it, but I never stopped loving Sequim. I am just so grateful! I got here and things are just as I left them, but the missionaries aren't utilizing the wards as they should cause they are the best in the mission up here. I love it! So, I fully intend to get Sequim back to its full potential :)
Well, they put me back with Sister Nybo (from Salem, UT) whom I served with in Gig Harbor and we had a terrible time getting along back then, but I think that we've both grown so much and I think this time around will definitely be better and we'll be more effective missionaries. I also have another companion from the Phillipines and her name is Sister Directo. She is actually a Temple Square missionary here on her proselyting portion of her mission. I can already tell that I really love her spirit :)
This past week we met with a PMF and he felt that he had to tell us what his spirit told him about our spirits. Sounds weird I know, but just hear me out! He said that I had a very strong spirit and that people are drawn to me because my strength provides strength for them. He said that I was very determined, and that it is because of these qualities that I am meant to have amazing success in my mission and in my life. WOOWWWW.
I was blown away. He said that he had this gift of discerning spirits but that he hardly ever used it anymore because it weirded people out. I thought it was incredible though. :)
This past week, we had a mission tour which is when one of the general authorities come to the mission and talks to us about the work, how we can improve, etc. Well, I was one of the five that was chosen out of the whole mission to talk to the authority and I asked him questions about how I could endure to the end well. He told me that it's the little things that make the biggest difference; If I ever stop praying, studying or going to the temple, than I have stopped enduring well. The temple is a major blessing, one that I didn't realize or take advantage of before the mission. I will never let that happen again.
Man alive, I've achieved something I never thought I would . . . I am fully devoted to the work, through and through. I love The Lord so much and I have determined that there is nothing that will keep me from reaching my eternal potential.

Love you all!

-Sister Emily McRae
