Week of Service

Dear loved ones,

I don't have a lot of time today so I'll have to keep this one short.

This week was one of service. Dismantling wooden bed frames, building furniture, carrying cabinets, unpacking boxes, dragging the Pinneberg Elders' luggage up a thousand flights of stairs, visiting lonely young mothers whose only company is their screeching two year old, and volunteering at the Hamburg International School.

As President Kimball said,

“Service to others deepens and sweetens this life ... in the midst of the miracle of serving, there is the
promise of Jesus that by losing ourselves, we find ourselves! [See Matthew 10:39.]... We become more substantive as we serve others--indeed, it is easier to ‘find’ ourselves because there is so much more of us to find!”

How wonderful it is that we have opportunities to step outside of ourselves, serve others, and find ourselves.

I love you all!

Sister Hendricks
