Dear Family and Friends,
The last week has been pretty good. We finally had our first real lesson! We taught a couple named Maria and George. The are a perfect example of how the Lord prepares people for us to teach. Maria and George were raised Catholic (Just like EVERYONE in California) but don't go to church (just like EVERYONE in California - just kidding, a ton of people go to church here). Even though they have stopped going they feel like church is important and they can feel something missing because they do not attend church. If that isn't the Lord preparing someone to receive the gospel then I don't know what is!
I feel like this has become sort of a Mormon cliche, the example of Nephi is perfect! "I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandth them" The Lord does provide a way. There is ALWAYS a way. I know that the Lord provides a way. He knows us perfectly. I would like to challenge everyone reading this to look for a way to do something you thought to be impossible. Share the gospel with a friend, go to church even if your schedule is tough or take time to read the scriptures for at least a little bit every day. I know that the Lord will prepare a way.
