Jesus Heals a Woman of Faith

This story from the New Testament has a lot of personal meaning for me.

When one of my close friends from the MTC was too sick to continue her mission, I gave her this scripture.

"Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole, go in peace" 

I often thought of the same scripture when I had to leave my mission early.

To me, it meant that even though my body didn't seem whole, my faith was. And I could go in peace because my scars weren't what defined me;

it was my faith that defined me. 

We are more that just our scars.
