Hey!This week has flown by. I had a lot of interesting experiences... You're right mom, tonight is dodge-night. I'm excited and nervous to find out. Everyone thinks I'm leaving because I'm finished training, but you never really know. I've had a couple of dreams, one that I was going to somewhere in the Cheltnum zone and one last night that I was going to Aberystwyth in wales. I'm fairly certain that they weren't reveletory dreams but we'll see (: It's been weird lately because I feel like I've grown so much as a missionary these past two transfers but am still struggling to get people to progress. Though, Maria and David are doing great. They didn't come to church yesterday though which was a bit of a heart break. It's amazing how much sorrow these things can bring. As a missionary you really care about these people and to quote preach my gospel, 'desire their salvation.'
So today we will be playing sports with the district. and tonight we get the big call. We'll see what will happen! I'm happy you don't know until next week though! I want it to be a surprise! Check the other mom's rosters, maybe I'll be serving with one of their sons. How do they know though??
So a little spiritual thought today, inspired by Wasi. 'Tie up your camel, then trust God.' He explained this to mean that if you don't tie up your camel, and it runs away or is stolen, or is blown away in a storm or something you can't complain to God asking why it happened. We have to do our part. Basically it's a funny, Arab way of saying Faith without works is dead. I came across this in my studies this morning too with the Brother of Jared. He knew he wanted light in his vessels so he went out, came up with a plan, carved rocks, then went to the Lord. He did everything he knew to do, then asked God to help. When we pray for things we need to make sure we are doing everything in our power to achieve the things we pray for. Especially with revelation. We have to search diligently for our answers, pray, search some more, and when we've done everything, we will be answered. Tie up your camel, then trust God.
PS...by the way, I may need shoes soon. The shoes I bought fooled me and are wearing out quickly even though the sole looks like it will last. I may need some eccos, maybe get taylor to pick some out? I dont need them right now immediately though. I also may want to get a suit soon. Also, SEND ME TONY'S. I'm running out.
