Can’t believe its still sunny, this is a miracle everyone!
This week has been so great and so fast! I gave a talk in sacrament on choices and how we are all faced with difficult choices and we don't always know which path to take, but if we are doing what’s right our loving Heavenly Father will never lead us astray. I shared from conference when President Monsen said to take the harder right instead of the easier wrong. We need to follow that counsel because the right decision might not always be easy but when we put our trust in the Lord we can know everything will be okay. He will always provide a way for us to accomplish the things He asks. ‘I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unot the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.’(1Nephi 3:7) I am so thankful I am not alone on this journey!!!
We were teaching one of our Chinese investigators who we hadn't seen for a couple weeks and we taught him about the10 commandments and the Sabbath day. As we were talking, he asked, “what do I need to do to be baptized?” Me and sister pro just looked at each other and of course told him, but we were freaking out inside! We didn’t think he wanted to be or anything, it was so cool! So we are preparing him to be baptized and hopefully he will continue to progress!
We fasted again for A’s visa and we get a call from him later during the day and he told us his friend got his visa which is hilarious. We just had to laugh and wonder why things happen the way they do. But God has a plan for each of us!!! Just put your trust in him! Hopefully it will come soon!
Only 3 weeks left in the transfer which is crazy! Missions are awesome but hard and I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. There are times when I still have doubts, but those are just from Satan. He always tries to get us to think we aren’t good enough and that there is no point in choosing the right. But when we choose the right we can always be happy :) Thank you for the advice about not letting Satan get to me. I need to remember those are not thoughts from God.
That is what I am working on this week, to be happy all the time. I’ll letcha know how it goes ;)
Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and it is a choice! We just need to choose to be happy, so this week I am choosing to be happy and enjoy even the hard days.
Teaching is going good, there are still lots of things to improve on but this week I realized I am going to be happy and focus on serving the Lord. thank you for reminding me that we don’t just teach the lessons but we are here to be a light to people too.
hope all of you have a great week! love and miss you all!
love, sister stevens
