Tomorrow it will be exactly 11 months since I walked into the Provo MTC. If there is one verse that sums up how I feel about the last year it is this:
Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.
Last week was a great week. It was exhausting. It was stressful. But I grew and I learned that I truly can’t do anything with my own strength. We weren’t seeing any immediate results from our efforts in finding new investigators and then out of nowhere we find out that a lady from Arizona who was being taught by missionaries and progressing towards baptism is moving into our area. So we will begin teaching her this week after we help her get moved in.
When we are doing all that we can to obey the commandments of God, the blessings may not always be immediate. They may not always come in the way we thought they would. But they come! This I know.
Love you all,
