Well, this week was one mixed with everything including lots of rain. It was okay, but not fun riding through, especially on wet roads.
We were met with some disappointing news, as well, when our most promising investigator said he is moving away for a while because of work, but he did commit to continue reading the Book of Mormon which was super awesome to hear. We have been trying our best lately to find people who are ready to receive this wonderful gospel but we haven't been as successful as we would have liked. However, the members have stepped up their game and they have realized we need their help in finding people to teach. That’s been super awesome.
We went tracting way out in the country again and met one guy who said, "In all my 20 years of living here I've never met a Mormon missionary.” I looked at him and said, "well, you know there's a first for everything" so we knew we were exactly where the Lord needed us to be.
We also drove down this week to give a blessing to a member from the ward. We didn't find out until we got there that it was a member I had gotten really close to. At the end of the blessing he asked to hold our hands and said a prayer, giving thanks to God for allowing him the opportunity to receive a blessing from Him through us. This brought tears to my eyes as I watched how the faith of this faithful servant of God did not wavier despite the difficulties and challenges he faces and will continue to face in his life. I felt the spirit so strong. As I gave his wife a blessing of comfort it was made known to me all would be well.
27 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, have miracles ceased because Christ hath ascended into heaven, and hath sat down on the right hand of God, to claim of the Father his rights of mercy, which he hath upon the children of men?
28 For he hath answered the ends of the law, and he claimeth all those who have faith in him; and they who have faith in him will cleave unto every good thing; wherefore he advocateth the cause of the children of men; and he dwelleth eternally in the heavens.
29 And because he hath done this, my beloved brethren, have miracles ceased? Behold I say unto you, Nay; neither have angels ceased to minister unto the children of men.
30 For behold, they are subject unto him, to minister according to the word of his command, showing themselves unto them of strong faith and a firm mind in every form of godliness."
Faith in the Savior can push us to do so many things and enables us to know the Savior is always mindful of us and our needs. As He has promised to all who are His disciples "He will be with us always.”
