March 20, 2017

This was a great week. Elder Davis and I are working hard and seeing lots of miracles. My favorite one that happened this week, we received a referral from our bishop for this 60 year old man that was walking from Wendover to Ely. If you know anything about eastern Nevada Geography, Wendover is about 120 miles from Ely. The guy's name is Michael, and he got about 43 miles before a trucker picked him up, (who happened to be a member of the church). The trucker called our bishop and got him the help he needed. To make matters worse, there was a nasty storm and Michael didn't have a jacket. As he and the trucker drove down they talked about the church and Michael got really interested and said he would come! We met with him and arranged for someone to bring him to church, but when they got there he had decided to walk to church instead (What's a mile and a half compared to 43 miles?) It is definitely a miracle that he was able to survive the snowstorm in the middle of nowhere, an even bigger miracle that he got picked up, and an even bigger miracle that the guy who picked him up was a missionary minded member!
I know that miracles will happen as long as we have the faith that is required. And ye may know that he is, by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore I would exhort you that ye deny not the power of God; for he worketh by power, according to the faith of the children of men, the same today and tomorrow, and forever. Moroni 10:7
Remember, there is no greater work than missionary work, and no work has bigger rewards than missionary work. God is ready and willing to give us these opportunities to share what we know to be true. All we have to do is be willing to open our mouths.  For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say. D+C 100:6

We'll see what miracles happen this week.
