Sacrifice= destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else, something given up or lost.
Last night I was talking to a young lady and telling her about the miracle that we got the mission call to Washington DC and the Barlow Center. We have no doubt that this is where we are suppose to be and that this was the time we needed to be here. She said you have been willing to sacrifice and come here. How could you call what we are doing a sacrifice. I looked up the definition. The only way you could call our service a sacrifice was giving up time with our grandchildren. But to call our service a sacrifice would not be a good description. There are times we walk in wonder that we are here. There is nothing we would rather be doing. What we have gained has far out weighed any thing we have done. What greater joy can we have than to teach and testify of the Savior, His work, and His life. What greater joy is there than to see the gospel change lives. We have been given a chance to work with each other in a cause that we love. That is not a sacrifice that is called a blessing.
