Mission Tour

Hey Everybody :)
This last week was really exciting, we had a big training from Elder Dube of the Quorum of the Seventy. I learned a lot about the potential we all have as sons and daughters of God and the importance of the Book of Mormon. He talked about how he was given a copy before he was baptized and he didn't open it up until 2 years later! We practiced and emphasized the importance of application from the scriptures and how the Book of Mormon is for us in these days. 
This week we had a miracle involving a former investigator that we taught a little bit back. After having to drop a couple of our investigators, we got a text yesterday from a 23 yr old that was investigating. The reason we stopped teaching her is because she didn't fully believe in prophets, from the bible or from present time. We told her that the way she would find answers from God and to know if He worked through prophets is by reading the scriptures, including the Book of Mormon, and praying about it, God is the one that gives us answers for ourselves. We lost contact then received this text from her saying she had been reading the Book of Mormon and feels it to be true and that she wants to look into being baptized. I know God supplies and gives us the tools to be happy. 
I know this church is the church of Jesus Christ and that He rules and governs it. I have learned  that when we go through tough times, our problems can be solved by 1 of 4 things (or sometimes more than 1): faith, humility, hope, or charity. When things seem to not be right, I've tried to adjust my views and actions of one of these things and I've seen myself to be happier. 
Have a great week!
