Fun fact: it takes $20 million to operate a new mission for the first 5 years.
Something that I've learned recently is that dedication brings sanctification. That one can go through his or her mission or one can let the mission go through him/her. The atonement is rehabilitative. Change and accepting the will of God requires a lot of stretching and pulling, that will be very uncomfortable at times, but it's worth it. You feel so much better afterward. But it's something that everyone MUST experience. Sanctification only comes by sincere repentance and we MUST be sanctified to enter His presence (1 Nephi 15:34). Either He will justify us or we will. The entrance requirements are simply higher than satisfying the demands of justice. Paying for our own sins will not bear the same fruit... That's why daily repentance and obedience is so crucial. Change wrought by sincere repentance.
Guadeloupeans are very nice. I'll send more pictures of the conference and of Guadeloupe next week. One of the sisters has my SD card reader...
