This week went well! We had some setbacks, but were able to press forward with faith. No matter what we go through, we can always rely on the Lord and He will deliver us or provide strength. And we had some miracles on Sunday!
The first miracle was that one of our investigators made it to church. It was exciting because he brought his little daughter and he also told us that his wife would probably be interested in the gospel as well.
The second miracle came that night as we taught a less-active member. We've been working with him for a while and he's been through a lot in his life. When we first started meeting with him he would not read the scriptures or accept many commitments. But recently he's been reading the chapters we offered him and last night he thanked us for our efforts on his behalf and gave each of us a hug.
This gospel is such a great blessing! God loves us so tenderly. And He has blessed us so greatly with the gift of His Son and so much else. May we thank Him and offer our gratitude daily. A verse from the book of Ether illustrates this simple principle. Talking of the Jaredites, verse 12 of chapter 6 reads, " And they did land upon the shore of the promised land. And when they had set their feet upon the shores of the promised land they bowed themselves down upon the face of the land, and did humble themselves before the Lord, and did shed tears of joy before the Lord, because of the multitude of his tender mercies over them." As we all express gratitude for His tender mercies, we will be more aware of them. He truly loves us. I know that He lives and is yearning to be a part of our daily lives. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
I love each and every one of you! Have a great week!
