Missionary service is not easy, but it is infinitely worth it.

As quoted by M. Russell Ballard - 2005, April General Conference. 
Missionary service is not easy, but it is infinitely worth it.

I started working few days ago and on my second day, I was talking with my colleague. They asked me, why do I stop studying and came back to work. I told them, I have something important to do which is to become a missionary for my church. 

For your information, the definitions for missionary are, 

  1. a person sent by a church into an area to carry on evangelism or other activities, as educational or hospital work.
  2. a person strongly in favor of a program, set of principles, etc. who attempts to persuade or convert others. 
  3. a person who is sent on a mission
You will have a companion during your mission time. 
and you walk around teaching people about our church. 

I was asked by my colleague, do I get paid for doing this. I answered, No. They asked me again, how long do I need to serve my mission. I answered, 2 years. They looked a little disappointed with my decision and asked what would I actually benefit from this. And I gave them a bunch of list and finally they respect my decision. 

Now let me tell you again why do I choose this path,
  • I was inspired and impressed by the good examples of all these returned-missionary. 
  • I am taught to keep commitments and set a great example to other peoples.
  • There are times that I will go through trials and difficulty, and I am taught not to give up no matter what happen and endure to the end.
  • I will definitely learn new things that I will apply in my future. 
  • Every month I will be given a certain amount of money and I will live with that money for each month. And I have to plan and budget accordingly. From there, I will learn how to plan and budget.
  • I am never satisfy with my own characteristics! I want to be better and better every single day. 
  • I want to be a better husband. One who loves the Lord loves his family.   
  • I love my church. I love Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ. You don't just say you love, you act!And that's the reason I chose to be a missionary.
