Sorry about last week, our time was cut short and time was not on my side.Many great things are happening and the work continues to push forward. What a blessing it is to serve the Lord, because the trials, afflictions, challenges that come in this service, mold our character, magnify our potential, and unleashes the dormant spirit. Missionary work is simply that... Work. But there's an eternal light that this work brings to the world. As an individual missionary who's just like any other missionary, my whole purpose is to help the Lord to convert others to His gospel, as well as myself. This last week we had a mission leaders council with the mission president in discussing what needs to be done to achieve our goals and to organize ourselves to be the best missionary force that we can be. As questions rolled on about specific things that we need to do with our investigators, President Chatfield told us that there is no point in asking him because we won't learn anything. He told us that the Lord is ready and available to bless us with answers and guide us in what we should do. That is something that has stuck with me, is that whenever we are stuck or confused, the Lord is just waiting for us to ask what we should do.
