Little boy blue and the man on the moon. When you coming home homie don't know when but we'll get together then ya. I know we'll have a good time then.
Well this week was awesome! Vibes are good.
Elder Luther and I got pretty tired, but it was worth the effort. We never quit though it was hard at some points to stay determined. I find we can usually hit the key indicators pretty easy, but I am still trying really hard to stay focused after we hit them. I think our focus is good and it is good practice.
We were able to overcome the lack and compensate with some good finding to end the week. We saw our biggest miracle on Sunday when we had 8 investigators come to church! It was super awesome and our member support was pretty good. We were excited because all three of our dates for this month came and now if they come next week all three could get baptized this month!
Almost all of our investigators are sisters. 11 to 3 ratio. HAH. We are praying hard that they will all be able to make it next week. It was really fun to see their faith as they came and sat through multiple meetings with a bunch of loud kids and people they hadn't really met. So awesome! They have the faith!
I have the faith too. Sometimes missionaries will ask me how to do something and I am kind of always empty handed, I have no idea how to help these struggling friends. I guess I never know how to help them because I feel like anything I know now or any skills I have were given to me by the Holy Ghost and I only have them still because I take faithful action.
It is a super great blessing to be serving here. I am just a goody foreigner that strolls around the streets of Taiwan spreadin' smiles and the good word. It is the change that makes it possible to do this.
People will often say they will be ready to meet God when they run into some problems or something similar. But I find that it isn't the problems coming that trigger the belief or faith. It is the desire to change.
When we desire to change God will guide us. When we are prideful, we are not willing to budge and God will use the trials to soften us, but really the Holy Ghost can only enter into our hearts when we let go, give in and say, "I am willing to become what you want of me."
