I don’t have too much time this week so I will share only a few things.
Something that was really exciting for us yesterday in church, was that we had 4 investigators! 2 being a mom and daughter that are really progressing, Flora and Gricelda. A man that we contacted in the street and visited him one time this past week. I hope that he can get his whole family to come next week! But it just felt really good to see our investigators in the house of the Lord. I pray that the messages were able to reach their hearts and that their testimonies of the Gospel were able to be strengthened!
This week I heard a lot about our desires. One week a while ago I was reading Alma 29. And I just love this chapter! Because as a missionary we tend to want everything to be good.. Everybody to progress, the ward to be strengthened, and teach everybody about the gospel. But then when I read this chapter, Alma basically says " I want to teach everybody and share the gospel with everybody!" But as one human, its not all that possible. Then he later says "why would i want to do anything different than the will of God?" I know that sometimes I lose myself in my desires rather than in the desires of Heavenly Father. I know that he knows what is best and if we focus on doing his will, we will be happy with the work that we are doing. It helped me a lot with the mission here. I want so much for everybody to accept the gospel. But all I can do is try my best, talk with as many people as I can, and God will do the rest. I just have to have the desires of my Heavenly Father and all will be ok! I know that this is true! Heavenly Father is a God of love! He knows what he's doing! Thank goodness, I have him to rely on.
Well, not too much more, time is up! But I love you all and I hope that everybody can find hope in Jesus Christ! He is the only hope we have!
Love, Hermana Liesel Wiscombe
