Well this week was full of MIRACLES! Crazy huh?? But really, GOD IS REAL!
So this week we had an awesome training in Brno and it was a very inspired
meeting. We came back home and decided to put our commitments to the test.
We talked about how to see a miracle. We truly can pull them down from
heaven through some simple steps:
1. Think of a miracle
2. Ask of God
3. Make a sacrifice, tell Him what you will do to see this happen
4. Expect a miracle, have faith
5. Except the miracle with gratitude
Now I was talking with my companion about this and I shared how I thought
that miracles may not come exactly when we want them, but I know that they
will. God has perfect timing. We were very lucky the next day though, we
showed our faithfulness and saw our miracle come to pass! Sister Ludlow and
I prayed and prayed and prayed. Who to talk to, where to go, when to go,
which way to follow, what to say. We put our trust in the Spirit. And guess
what, we prayed to share a message about prayer with someone and that is
exactly what we did! The last person we talked to when the chances were
slimming. It was amazing and we are setting up to meet with them!
On Saturday we decided to go do some service trackting. We changed into our
jeans and tshirts, which is wayyyy weird and went around our neighborhood
asking if we could help in peoples gardens. Many said no, but then we saw a
man hedging his front bush, and we were like oh man there is our
opportunity! So we approach him with smiling faces and he declines. I was
pretty said and we ended up turning the other way than we had planned. But
because of that we had three miracles happen. One house told us that we
could return and share with them the gospel, another said that we could
come back and do some service, and then the last one was a huge blessing.
We knocked and no one answered. I was about to leave when my companion said
wait I think I hear someone. Then the door opens and a dog runs out. Woo!
Haha we meet the sweetest 81 year old catholic grandma. We ask her if there
is anything that we can help her with and she said that she would be sooo
happy if we could help her. She invited us in and we sat down with some
water and got to know both her and her adorable dog, who gave us lots of
wet little kisses, dont worry it is just a sweet little dog:) we got to
know her and talked about the power of God and blessings in our lives. She
brought us out strawberry popsicles and then let us pick some cherries in
her garden. She told us that we could come back anytime and help her out.
She told us that she was so grateful that we came to her.
I know that our paths are inspired and that God loves and cares for us. He
placed us in the paths of these people and them in ours. I am eternally
grateful for His love and the joy that we can find in life.
I read this scripture during morning study, it is in 1 Nephi 7
11 Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten what great things the Lord
hath done for us, in delivering us out of the hands of Laban, and also that
we should obtain the record?
12 Yea, and how is it that ye have forgotten that the Lord is able to do
all things according to his will, for the children of men, if it so be that
they exercise faith in him? Wherefore, let us be faithful to him.
I know that if we do not forget the Lord and we exercise our faith
according to His will, we WILL OBTAIN! Nephi was a very good example of
Thank you for your prayers and support, I love serving the Lord!!
Have a fabulous week!
