March 25, 2013
This week has been interesting. If something could have gone wrong this week it surely went wrong - that is for sure. Everything fell through this week - it was kind of an ugly week. Our baptism dates fell through; everyone that was progressing isn't right now. No one could come to church and when we were contacting no one wanted to receive us. It was great fun. Me and my companion really learned a lot. Sometimes it is not about what you are able to accomplish during the week - it is about the effort that you put into working. The Lord doesn't bless us for the results, the Lord blesses us for the efforts that we make. I was really able to learn a lot about that and see the Lord bless us. We were able to finish the week really well though. Yesterday we had District Conference and one of the converts received the Melchizedek Priesthood. It really was a blessing and to be able to see someone progress and to be able to have such a sacred responsibility. Then in afternoon we went looking for a contact and we found him. We had a really awesome lesson with him and we just talked with him and he said that before he was able to go to church and that he loved it and feels that the church is true but sometimes the circumstances effect your life and that he felt bad that he hasn't been back. He just expressed a sincere desire to change his life and to be able to make his relationship with God better. It made me realize what a great blessing it is to no matter where we are in life we can always repent and make it back. God loves us all so much that repentance is always there for us. Let's take advantage of it then - we all should repent daily to partake of these blessings.
