My Banner Will Be Clear.
What an amazing week of miracles in the land of milk and honey! The Lord is definitely hastening his work and as we continue to lose ourselves in his will and said with all her heart, might, mind, and strength he allows us to see more and more miracles each day!
This week were able to get back in contact with Samson who has such a strong desire to come closer to Jesus Christ. He was meeting with missionaries in the past and was planning on getting baptized, but with transfers, he kind of fell through the cracks. But he still has such a huge desire! We were also able to see Juan and Sylvana and they are so awesome! We felt inspired to talk to them about Lehi's dream in 1 Nephi 8 and how baptism isn't just joining another church but rather taking another step closer to Jesus Christ and feeling his love more through his atonement. They understood so well and the light that was in their eyes in the spirit that was in their home was so strong. It was a huge miracle!
This week we had zone training in one of our zone leaders give a training on a talk given at the April 2015 general conference called "your four minutes". Bishop Stevenson talks about a few Olympians in the last Olympics who won medals in their events. He talks about a race called the skeleton which in total is a four minute race and this
Olympian who had changed her whole life to be in this race and had lost a couple of opportunities due to injuries or missing the qualifications by just a hundredth of a second. But once she got into the actual Olympics she gave her all in the four minute she was given. And it just helps me think about how this life is our four minutes. We've been preparing for this for a long time and now is when we give it our all to grow our relationship with Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father as much as we can. I know we will receive strength as we do so! And that strength comes through the love our Heavenly Father and Jesus
I love you all and I hope you have an amazing week! You're always in my prayers!
