This week has been kind of a tough week. It is funny how Heavenly Father blesses you with good times, but then right after those good times he gives you struggles. That has happened this week. I was feeling good, things where moving along, our investigators where progressing, then Elder Bumgarner got sick. So we were out a couple days this week. Then we had a lot of appointments set up with investigators and almost every single one had to cancel on appointments this week. That was really depressing. Then only one of our investigators actually came to church. That was even worse. I am trying not to get discouraged because I have seen this before on my mission. The Lord always gives us trials, but these trials are just there to help make us stronger. We are just going to have to rely on the Lord and get to work. I truly do care for these people that we are working with, so that is why it hurts me a lot when they don't keep commitments. I know though that this is the Lords work and that when we rely on him he can let us know what these investigators need to progress the most in this gospel. So that is what we will do ... Trust in the Lord. Alma 36:3 tells us when we trust in the Lord he will support us in our trials, troubles, afflictions. He will not take those things away from us, but will SUPPORT us in them. So I hope to be able to be worthy of the Lords help and support during the times of trials.
We will just have to work harder to help these people that the Lord has blessed us.
