Hope you are all doing great :) Things here are good, it was a tough week but so much growth happened in Sister Haws and I. I felt the Spirit share with me that our development is like a game of basketball. It does a player no good if they are the fastest one down the court but they can't dribble a basketball. if you don't know the play, you won't know the purpose of all the other players. If you don't practice shooting, then you're going to suck as point guard. We can be as diligent as possible but it will do us no good if we don't have faith. We can believe that we'll find and baptize but if we don't have patience, then we won't see the greater plan and we will lose all faith we have. We have to be all around players in this game! We have to practice all Christlike attributes found in Preach My Gospel and use them like Christ would. But the biggest thing that i learned about was about hope. Hope is the underlying factor that plays a role in every attribute. So yeah! That's this week in a life lesson, we're going to apply it this whole week and be patient and believing in Christ and what He can do for us.
Our miracle came from having people at church this week! We were really nervous about who would come this week but due to checking in and following through with those that said they could come, we saw some miracles and got some potential investigators progressing by getting them to church.
One huge miracle that happened this week was most definitely a tender mercy prepared by the hand of God just for me. I was able to see Anderson, a recent convert of mine and someone i helped to be baptized.My heart was so full. He means the world to me and it was great to see him going to church in the congregation that meets at the other time in our building. I haven't seen him since last year. Just from this small instance, it strengthened my testimony that the Lord knows us personally and answers our prayer. Earlier that morning I had prayed that we would see a miracle happen with someone coming to church. And the Lord definitely came through.
Love you all, have a great rest of your week!
