Week 45 Layco District, El Salvador (Zone Leader)--May 30, 2016

A week in the life as a zone leader

so i have now finished a whole week as the zone leader of layco. elder gallardo and i are new to it (though he had a week and a half head start) so we still dont quite feel like we are zone leaders haha. pretty much we just have more numbers to do more than anything. but its fun. this week we had a little multizone so its always good to see other missionaries and receive counsel from president. this week we were really busy and really working hard to find people to teach and get to know the area. we have been determined to set ourselves to strive for and reach the standards of excellence set by our mission president. we were able to accomplish several points this week and now have the drive to change how we work so we can improve in other areas. setting goals is great. one great satisfaction of working is being able to set high goals and reaching them. and then, we can keep working to improve so that we can really reach our potential as missionaries, workers, members, parents, friends, or whatever really. and, even when we fall short of a goal, we can then have the chance to reflect and start again even better. setting goals is a great way to master self discipline. as i have gone out to set and reach goals in all of my time in the mission, it has made me come to realize all of the times in my life before where i wasnt able to quite accomplish what i wanted because i wasnt properly setting or striving for goals. mostly, i just went through the motions of working and hoped for the best. i may have wasted a lot of great potential in many aspects of my life. for that i am grateful to now be learning how to become the best me. and in all this self discipline and potential-reaching, there is nothing more important than relying on the Lord. Remember the scripture in Ether in that we all have weakness, but that all of those weaknesses, every single one, can become a strength if we just rely on the Lord. thank you all always for your love, prayers, and support. i hope you all have a great week!
