You know, I always feel a little guilty when people talk about these great missionary experiences they've had. My sister keeps telling me in her letters I need to try to have one (she's coming home on Nov. 3rd!).
I realized today that I am working on it, but just line upon line. I have a good friend who is Catholic. Well, she's a convert and is working on being able to take her first communion. Anyway, she's a dear friend and I'm always sending her quotes and stuff. Quite a while ago we agreed to respectfully agree to disagree on some things, and basically focus on what we have in common. So I felt I could keep sending her quotes. ((she's one of my stillbirth mommy friends and she struggles with depression, so quotes are always of a comforting nature)).
Anyway, during General Conference, the one talk I really got to sit and listen to all the way through without interruptions was Quentin L. Cook's "The Songs They Could Not Sing." During the whole thing I thought about her, and felt impressed that it was something she needed.
Well, I just now got around to sending her a link and a quote from it, and her response? "Every time you send me one of these I have another "ah ha!" "
So I guess I am having a missionary experience. Just once that's stretched over years, little bit by little bit.
