Selwin Chases the Wrong Dog

New Mission President and Sister Olsen
Well, the temperature has dropped over the last few days mainly because of rain, which is sad, but we got to pull out the raincoats and go riding in it.  It was probably not the best idea, but hey the work has got to be done whether the sun be shinning or the rain be falling.

The week was a good one. We met with one young man who was very interested in what we had to say, in fact we spent an hour at his door alone talking with him and answering his questions. He didn't come to church but we will be seeing him really soon.  During the week we also went to visit a few less-active members and on our departure they started looking for their little dog. They saw it down the street but it just kept running away because we were riding towards it, so I yelled out "we got to catch that dog.”  I shot past my companion and the dog pulling both brakes to bring me to a halt. I then turned and looked at the dog and said "go home."  It was then I realized this was not the less-active’s dog and stopped my companion from riding behind it to take it home. The poor dog was just trying to get back to it's own home when we chased it down. I couldn't help but think that the dog thought that we were crazy.

It reminded me of the path in this life we are asked to walk on and many of us have already found that path. But we all know staying on that path to the end is what really matters.

President Thomas S. Monson once said, "There is no need for you to sail uncharted seas or to travel unmarked roads in search of truth. A loving Heavenly Father has plotted our course and provided an unfailing guide even obedience".

So know our Father in heaven will help us all walk on that path no matter what, so let us all continue to endure to the end.
