Another week with plenty of miracles. I will share a few.
Two nonmembers showed up to church on Sunday! Whoa! This is very rare in Laie. They both just moved here, but don't know each other. One is named Brent and the other is named Julie. They are both very kind. Brent is not interested at the moment, but came to the fireside at the Visitors' Center that same night. Julie we didn't get to talk to much. She works at a little store in the middle of our neighborhood and we are hoping to see her again. We hope she enjoyed church!
Also in the Visitors' Center we met a man named Jeff who was traveling on his own looking for a greater purpose in life. Wow! Didn't want to leave his contact information, but i am confident the missionaries will find him when the time us right.
There was another day that we prayed so hard to find people in our area and we promised we would be right on time. We were and Heavenly Father kept His promise! We found people we had been looking for even though we did not plan to find those specific people! God truly knows everyone and the details of there lives. My mom can attest to that as she has had similar spiritual experiences this week. God works in mysterious ways. There are so many blessings for exact obedience.
Something I like this week in church was said in Relief Society. They were speaking about marriage and the teacher said, "Marriage is enduring." I loved that. Of course I am not married, but aren't all relationships that are filled with charity truly enduring and meant to last? I have felt that, in a good way, with my current missionary companion, Sister Walker. We have been together for a long time. We have learned a lot about each other and had to work to overcome differences. It has been challenging, but great! In any relationship, it is a matter of both people being the right person - who God wants you to be.
Hope everyone is doing well! Stay strong this week and read your scriptures!!
