It's interesting to read how hard Seth is trying to be an effective missionary. This is from his email home today:
"I feel so blessed to be
serving a mission. We had some tiring and stressful experiences this
week that kind of drained us, but we are growing so much from them...each of us are growing
greatly by learning from each other. I want to work on having greater
patience this week, and reacting in kindness to anything that comes up. I
feel like I can do better in that regard. I have learned a lot about
the power of quiet influence, persuasion, and inviting others to be
better. God lives. He loves us. This is His gospel. Because
He lives there is something greater out there that we can rely on when
we are faced with our own imperfections."
Those are good thoughts to ponder. We miss Seth around here, but I am grateful he is serving the Lord.
