LIfe of a Sister Missionary part 10: The Final Chapter: The Sacred Hour

You'd think that we would have one hour to read a book, tell ghost stories, and bake cookies.  But alas, you'd be wrong.  This hour is a very important one for missionaries.  This is when we update our daily records, prepare for bed, write in our journals, and ponder upon how we can best help the people we serve.  It is the perfect time to receive inspiration.  And it is the most difficult hour to use wisely.  It is easy to get distracted by talking to each other, reading the Ensign, or playing on the piano.  However, this is the time to decompress and ponder, and to prepare for future lessons.  This hour ends with a prayer (shocked?) and bed.  As you can see from this series, we strive to focus each hour of the day on the people we teach, so that we can "earn our pillow" each night.  That is what being a Sister Missionary is all about.

What a wonderful close to the greatest series ever. The end of the day is the best, but like you said, it is very hard to use wisely. It is such a great time to feel the spirit!

Thankyou for the great post!

I am enjoying reading your blog. I turned in my mission papers a week ago, so am anxiously waiting for my call to arrive. Your blog gives me a glimpse into a sister missionary's life. :]
