Hey hey my favorite people!
This week has been full of learning! We had two leadership meetings plus stake conference so you better believe that my mind is just full of knowledge by now! Actually with all of these meetings I really only learned one thing. Christ enables us every single day to do this work! So often we get so caught up in the "To-Do's" of every day life. It can be overwhelming when we feel like we have to do it all ourselves but guess what! We don't. Christ is there to strengthen and help us when we feel we are falling short! I saw two evidences of this as we were out working this week!
This week was one of those weeks where I have been physically and mentally exhausted. I didn't feel like I was receiving very strong promptings from the spirit even though I was giving everything I could! One night we were walking down this street and there was only one house with a light on, so we, being the diligent missionaries that we are, knocked it. A lady named Latricia opened the door. We started talking and the spirit stepped right in. We found out that she has really been struggling with her connection to God and she has such a strong desire to know how to build it. I were able to promise her that God was aware of her desire and sent us to her to help her grow.
A few days latter the same thing happened. We walked down a road, not knowing why we were there and knocked one of the only houses with their lights on. This time Kim answers the door. She was so excited to see us. It turns out that her husband had passed away about a year ago. She was really struggling to know God's plan for her. A few days earlier she saw a family on Facebook that were members of the church. It sparked her memory of meeting with missionaries 20 years ago! Here she is, trying to figure out how to meet with the missionaries again and we show up on her door!Even though Sister Terry and I were exhausted this week, the Lord new we were trying our best and, quite literally, lit the path we needed to follow to find those he had prepared. Whenever we have a righteous desire to serve the Lord, He will always help us to fulfill that!
I love you all so much! I know this church is true and I know Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer!
