This week has been so interesting! The whole start of the week was
really rough! We pretty much had nobody to teach. So we did a lot of
finding and stopping by less active members. By Friday, I was about
ready to give up. We were doing our weekly planning and I wanted to
just throw my hands in the air and go back to bed. We had pretty much
no one to teach and even those we had were not progress or showing a
desire to do anything, so we had to think about not meeting with them
Even with our efforts in finding people to teach, we were not seeing
any results. No body would call us back or answer our calls. I felt
like there was nothing to be done. But the next morning, we got up and
went out and worked and did the best we could. We came back to our
flat for lunch and I had fallen asleep and woke up to the phone
ringing. I answered it and it was a girl we met the week before! We
had set up a time to see her and when we got there, she wasn't there.
We were really disappointed, but we never got a number so we couldn't
call her. So we just left a note on her door with our number and just
prayed we would call us back. And she did!
And it didn't end there! We had loads more miracles! Everything
started to pick up. The Lord has been blessing us for the work we have
been doing. A scripture that perfectly illustrates this principle is
And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I
would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and
not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no
witness until after the trial of your faith.
Once we show our faith in God and we work as hard as we can, he will
then shower us with blessing!
I am so thankful for trials. I do not ask for them, but I am so
thankful for the person they make me! I know it sounds strange, but I
know that our Heavenly Father knows us perfectly and knows not only
what will help us the most, but exactly what we can handle and he
won't send us anything else!
I love my Heavenly Father and I am so thankful for the honor of being
able to serve him and his children at this time.
I love you all and hope that when trials hit, please turn to our
Savior and Heavenly Father who are just waiting for us to reach out

Hopefully you can see this. This is us getting pumped to find people!
