This week has been another sort of difficult one. The work is hard and the appointments are not always followed through. We do our part to set it up, show up, plan. However, the adversary works hard to accomplish his work. That, he accomplishes as well. This message of the gospel brings peace in this life. It is what we have to offer people. Confidence in oneself, that a Heavenly Father loves each one of us and looks down on us every day, and tries to help us as best as He can. I am grateful for Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I am grateful for my knowledge of this gospel that has brought an extremely different dynamic to my life. My life and this message feel like gifts to me, and I am grateful for the opportunities that I have through them.
This past week, we met with a woman who was prepared to hear this message. This woman has no religious background. Her name is Elisabet. We randomly met her on the street one day as she basically asked us what we could teach her about Christ - that was months ago, and now we finally met with her. With her no religious background, she has been prepared by our Heavenly Father. She told us that she believes that her life has been guided by God through many experiences. She mentioned that she sees this life and good vs. evil. Not to mention a whole lot about it, but she believes there to be angels of God and spirits of the adversary fighting against each other on this Earth. Such can be learned.
I know that there are people all around us who are ready and willing to learn. We, as messengers of Jesus Christ, have the opportunity to piece together the puzzle that many of these prepared people have been learning throughout their life. It's a unique blessing that I do not take for granted. It's a testimony to me that this work is real. We're not out wasting time pretending to accomplish things for an unseen being. There is a God, He does love each one of us, and He wants us to be happy and successful. The best way we can be most happy is by following His commandments - they are a framework and a guide to help us live happy, successful lives.
