Elder Degn and I have been thinking recently on how we can get people interested in the church soooo...this week I tried my hand with magic! If you know me, you know I ain't much of a magician, but I found a deck of cards in the apartment, taught myself 2 tricks and then tried them out. We came up with a way to relate it to God’s relationship to us and how he knows us despite our trials. The person would choose a card, which would represent them, and then place it back in the deck. They then shuffle it up all good and give it back to me to find. We told them sometimes we run into trials and feel like there is no way we have a Heavenly Father who understands us or knows where we are. To show that, I would take the deck and throw it against the wall! Usually they were a little surprised, but I explained how no matter how lost your card may seem (or you), Heavenly Father always has you right by his side. I would then pull my phone out of my side pocket where behind the case would lie one card (their card). They usually were super confused, BUT it has worked 100% for people wanting to learn more! Who knew the skills the mission could teach you? I also just want to say Heavenly Father does know us all and has us right by His side no matter the situation. He Cares!
