Miracles From Above

I've learned an important principle over these past two weeks. Both weeks we have gone through our week, Monday through Saturday, without finding any new people to teach. That's a pretty frustrating feeling. You start to wonder if you're spending too much time with the zone, if your activities are productive, and what you can change. However, two Sundays ago we found 4 new people to teach that day. This Sunday we found 4. I'm learning what Alma 38: 5 teaches:

"I would that ye should remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day. "

It's an equation. As much as we put our trust in God is how much we will be delivered from our troubles and afflictions. As we continue doing what is right even when results don't happen -- the results do happen. They are gifts from God and not something we acquire on our own.

It's two weeks away from transfer day. It's strange to think that it's once again time to figure out who's leaving and who's going. The work goes onward!
