I loved seeing the pics of the fam with all the missionaries. It looks like heaps of fun!
This week was super busy with all the new missionaries coming in...So we were picking up and dropping off and hauling every ones gear in our Trailer....It was alright...Then we did our trainings which went well....This week we'll get to work our area for a few days then we have Zone conferences...my last one:(
M, from South Sudan is getting baptized...She is doing so solid. She has a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith. It's been so fun teaching her. She is so hilarious....She calls us her Children...She had to be interviewed by one of President's Counselors because after she got married her husband decided to have a few more wives....The Interview went good tho so it's on for S !
I love Alma chapter 31...It contains Alma's prayer to the Lord after the attempt to reclaim the Apostate Zoramites...Sometimes our prayers can become quite selfish and self centered but if we make a little change in our words which Alma shows us it makes all the difference.
Behold, O Lord, their souls are precious, and many of them are our brethren; therefore, give unto us, O Lord, power and wisdom that we may bring these, our brethren, again unto thee.
We Plead for strength and help to change and grow. We plead for power and wisdom SO THAT, we can serve and lift and strengthen those around us....
I have found that when my prayers become too self centered that communion with God seems to be distant and I struggle to discern His voice, but when i have made this small change, it has made all the difference...
God hears and answers our prayers. There is no doubt in my mind...
I love you guys:) Have fun this week:)
