Being a missionary can sometimes cause you to be accustomed to feeling the spirit all day and you don’t feel very many powerful moments but I have been more sensitive to the spirit this week. The Lord always answers my prayers I know He knows what he´s doing.
Being a member of the true church of Jesus Christ is a comfort indescribable. I would not trade it for anything. My testimony is solid. I know it’s true. Although I don’t remember all the details of when I was 8 I do remember the covenant I made, how I felt and how I continue to feel about keeping and honoring my promise I made at baptism. This week has been a little difficult but focusing on the commitment will help our investigators progress. My companion and I have basically cleaned out the area book and have 20 new investigators only 2 old ones that my companion used to work with and she has been in this area 6 months. The area is practically new and I feel such a renewed optimism. We are definitely getting to the point, but I have to get a lot better. I know the Lord puts things just the way they need to be and that if we are agents that act and creators of situations our faith will increase. When I was filling out my papers to go on my mission I felt a Lot of inadequacy but I had the desire and if you nourish the seed of faith it grows. I know "God does not begin by asking us about our ability, but only about our availability, and if we then prove our dependability, he will increase our capability!" Neal A. Maxwell.
I know this is true. I know this work is true. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I know you can know too. I know if for the gift of the Holy Ghost a quiet and still small voice that we must heed, listen and obey. “That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.” D&C 50:24
Thank you all for being a part of my life.
