In a meeting we had with Presidente Regalado and Hermana Regalado, Presidente Regalado said that we tithe our time as missionaries and we give our effort as an offering. An elder commented on that saying that with tithing we only give 10% and its a fixed amount, but our fast offerings should be generous. So, we should give all that we can in our effort to serve others right now. It made me think about the ways I can give more of my effort and energy to my Heavenly Father. Hermana Regalado then talked about receiving their mission call here to Reynosa. She talked about how we need to give everything to the Lord, and He will give us so much more back. She talked about how when we put the Lord first and are exactly obedient, we will see miracles. I think what I've learned most in this area is that when we serve the Lord, we give it our best and we keep being diligent. Also I've really felt that serving God isn't something that we do just on the mission or when we have a calling or assignment, it's something we do all the time. We should work to give our all to God all the time. Because He works through us, it is essential that we do what He asks us to do.
I love y'all!
