Selwin Finds Good in Opposition

It's foggy down here on the coast after a week of cold weather which makes it a bit hard to drive, but it's all good.

This week was one where we got things done but with everything good there is opposition.  Success didn't find us much this week and to round it off we had a few investigators drop us, but hey, that's all part of it. I had time this week so I fasted twice. It was awesome.  We had exchanges with the Zone Leaders as well and we walked a whole lot which totally reminded me of home.  But, through it all, I gained even more appreciation for God's creation of this earth. Well, enough of all that sad drama because as you know the Lord always blesses those of us who are in his service and so the one blessing we got this week was teaching a part-member family.

It was our second visit with them and it was awesome. I think it's those bright spots we should be looking for everyday, those things that just let us know God has not forgotten us. It is the Lord’s promise to us that He will never leave us nor forsake us, a promise not just temporal but one that is eternal as are all the promises the Lord makes with us.  We just have to put our trust in Him.

Proverbs 3: 5-6 reads: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not on thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."

A good friend reminded me this week we are all here to share this wonderful gift we have been given with everyone we meet but we must be as one, for the Lord said: " If ye are not one ye are not mine". The Lord’s will is our will so just trust him, he knows what he's doing. Thanks President Benn.
