A once in a lifetime experience!
On attending General Conference as a missionary. Probably a once in a lifetime experience and oh so wonderful, Being able to attend not...
Elder and Sister Burrow are serving on the main floor in the Church History Library which houses the Historical Records and some Artifacts of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We have the privilege of greeting guests to the Library and giving Tours of some of those precious documents which include:
Joseph’s Smiths diary written in 1832,
A first edition copy of the Book of Mormon,
An original page from the translation of the Brass Plates,
The Printers edition of the Book of Mormon,
The first Hymn book created by Emma Smith and
A letter to Emma from Joseph written while he was in Liberty Jail
In the past 4 months we have crossed the plains 3 times, crossed the sea twice, buried 2 spouses & 3 children. We have had 2 plural wives been forced out of Missouri and Nauvoo, Served 2 missions, sold a velocepede, attended the first wine fest in the City of Joseph and learned how to make beer as we have worked on transcribing Journals of the Early members of the Church. We have attended meetings with General Authorities of the Church and stepped off an Elevator to be greeted by Elder Gong to our surprise. We work regular office hour 5 and sometimes 6 days a week, keep a close eye on the reconstruction of the Temple and get to do family History at the family History library in our spare time. Occasionally we have the opportunity to give out a Book of Mormon or share a story from our own family with people from all over the world. We are learning the value of personal journals and Sister Burrow is working on becoming an expert in researching records of early members of the church. We are growing learning and expanding our testimonies as we set in daily devotionals with the other missionaries in our zone. And we get to work for Emily peck Crumpton. We have learned that It isn’t where you serve but how you serve and the fact that you are willing to serve that is the most important The Lord will use you where he needs you not necessarily where you think you would be most useful and that is enough.
