I had a unique opportunity this week, one that I've not had before, to bless a member's home. They just moved in from Rockford. They are the third family to move in just since I've gotten in the area. We've helped them move stuff in twice this week. Super awesome family, the Cooper's. We went there on elders quorum splits this week, I was with the elders quorum president. They asked if we could bless their home and they asked me to do it. I was really nervous, but I made it through!
We've got lots of time planned to find new investigators this week so I am excited for that. We've been spending a lot of time stopping by people that were already in area book the past couple weeks, so it will be fun to get some fresh people to work with.
I had a testimony building experience on Saturday night. But before I share that I'll share another that lays the foundation. This week I found myself pleading and begging Heavenly Father for help, sometimes almost shouting in my mind, "HELP US!" I think often why with all the prayers from our parents, ourselves, prayers in the temples for the missionaries, prayers from the First Presidency and the Twelve on behalf of missionary work, why with all these voices raised to the Lord to prepare the way and to help us find people, why are there not more people that we find and teach? I came to the conclusion that God has given me the greatest "help" I could have. I've been given, through a legal administrator, the gift of the Holy Ghost. My favorite line from a favorite hymn, Let the Holy Spirit Guide, "He will lead us safely home."
