Imagine Yourself as a Living House -
Serving as Mission Presidents is a very humbling experience . . .
You may be familiar with the CS Lewis quote that begins -
“Imagine yourself as a living house” . . .
It's very painful to say I think I was a little prideful in my life before the mission, but yep, um, i think I was prideful. I was quite proud of the little house I had built, I was very content with my life . . . I had no idea of the major remodel that my Heavenly Father had in store for me, or how painful it might be.
And at first I resisted that remodel quite . . . insistently . . .
But as I let Honduras, and each missionary, and each little starfish on the vast number of beaches that our Heavenly Father has out there . . . and more importantly, the fervent fervent message that filled my heart of our Heavenly Father’s love for all of His children change my heart -
I began to experience this extensive remodulation take place, until I can truly say I am hardly the same person that I was three years ago when we said farewell to family and friends and got on an airplane to Honduras.
