We have a new investigator named Debora who is also great as well, has a yearning to fill the hole that she never could fill in her pursuit to find the truth. Her daughter as well is a shy, sweet girl, Niyana (11 years old), who wants to learn more and asked her mom when they were going to go to church!
This week I have studied the topic humility quite a bit, because I know that when we are more humble, we are happier!! We are told, "blessed are those who humble themselves without being compelled to be humble." An apostle states that a way we can be more humble is to remember our constant dependence on the Lord through real, constant, worshipful, grateful prayer. Without Him we are nothing, with Him we are everything. We are all equally loved, equally important, equally blessed when we follow the commandments and love God. I think as missionaries it is common to look around and see the success of others and question God, but these thoughts must be replaced with faith and trust in God and His plan. He sure does have one. This work is fully inspired by Him. In D&C 67: 10 we read, "Strip yourself from jealousies and fears, and humble yourself before me and the veil shall be rent and you shall see me and know that I am....and in verse 14 we are told to not let our minds turn back!" When we are humble, we will come to know God, and once we have become more humble and more familiar with the divine nature of God, we can not turn back! The only direction we should be going is forward!
Love you! Praying for you!
