Journal Entry #50 – I just discovered that it is a very surreal feeling to read mission reports from abroad while actually being abroad. I have always been interested in mission work and have become quite accustomed to reading reports from all around the world. I receive several from various brethren. I love seeing how the Gospel is having an effect in other parts of the globe and it is thrilling to hear about the missionaries’ works and adventures. Just recently, I was reading one of these reports when it struck me that I am currently experiencing some of the same things as them. What a strange sensation! An American missionary reading about another American missionary and being able to personally relate to what they are saying. For me, that’s just neat!
