Elder Packard and I definitely hit the ground running this week and were able to see so many miracles each day!
While we were weekly planning, we were pondering about if we should stop seeing someone who we hadn't been able to contact in a few weeks. When they first met her, she accepted a baptismal date for May 30th. About 10 minutes after we had decided to not try and see them for a while, she texted us and asked us if she was still good to be baptized. We definitely didn't expect it, but made contact with her and she is so ready to follow Christ's example and be baptized. The Lord is always preparing us.
Our work and burdens will be light and easy to bear if we will depend on the Lord. We are going to be successful, there is no doubt about it. The Lord does not expect us to fail. He doesn't call anyone to fail. He expects us and will provide a way for us to succeed. When Elder Bednar came to the mission last year, he said, "when you feel the Spirit, time no longer exists." That's a lot to think about. But when we are constantly relying on the Lord through our trials and challenges, we'll see the eternal perspective and realize that they are only a moment in the grand scheme of things and will only help us grow and progress.
Have an amazing week and remember that the Lord is always by your side! Thank you for everything! I love you all!
