Oct 24, 2016 - Miracles Everywhere

Recording from Blake

This has been a great week. I chose the heading Miracles Everywhere because we have been blessed so much this week. Of course we have miracles all the time as missionaries, when we do our best and work our hardest, God always blesses us. However, this week we really wanted to prove to God that we were ready to do everything in our power to keep the miracles that he gives us alive and going. It might not make sense at first, but what we wanted to do is see the miracles, and then take them and run with them. We know we can never do enough to deserve miracles from God, but he gives us miracles as much as he can. He wants to bless us, he wants to help us, and when he know that we will do our part, he always blesses us more and more because we are prepared and willing to work with him.

This week, we contacted a lady on the street, who didn't have much interest about the Gospel, but had interest in our English class. Well, she showed up on Tuesday, and at the end when we share our spiritual thought, we talked about the first article of faith, which is that we believe in God the Eternal Father, in Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. It was something very new to her. Just the Idea that they are three different people was totally new to her. She said she knows that something exists and that lots of people believe that its God/Jesus Christ. Lots of people think they are the same person. It was so great to be able to speak with her and help her understand that we have a Loving Father in Heaven, and that He sent His son Jesus Christ down to the earth, and that he atoned and died for us, and that we can know all of these things for ourselves, by the power of the Holy Ghost. 

On Thursday we were invited to present a family home evening thought at the Bishops house. It was an amazing family home evening, we had a ton of fun and were able to share a spiritual thought about how we can stand as an example at all times, and how we can let our light shine for all. 

We saw miracles all week, and we did our best to always recognize them. Especially the small things, like how God always puts us and other people where we need to be. I know that God is always here for us, and that his hands are in the work. It's so amazing to be here representing Jesus Christ, and loving and serving my brothers and sisters. I encourage all of you to continue being good examples for all around, for everybody to see you. Thank you for everything you do, have a great week.
