So I know Ive been really bad with writing lately, but don't worry, Im going to do better.
This week has been full of mishaps and letdowns, while at the same time a chance for me and my investigators to build on our testimony.
I just want to share a short story on a new investigator we found. Her name is Bety and she has had a lot of trying times in her life. We went to visit her the other day and the moment she opened the door her face just lit up. Shes was more than excited to tell us about an experience she had with The Book of Mormon and prayer.
Things had been going down hill, she couldnt find work, her son was sick, shes taking care of her granddaughter because of other family problems; when she decided to take a moment to pray. When she prayed she asked for comfort and help in these trials she was passing through and then had the impression to read in the Book of Mormon. She opened to a random page and began to read. She told us with red watery eyes that the chapter she had read had been exactly what she needed in that moment. And the rest of that following night and day everything started falling into place. She knew that these blessings were from her small act of faith to pray and read the word of God.
I am in love with these moments. Seeing the faith of others grow is what causes my heart to throb every day as I am thanking God. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. And I know, without a drop of doubt, that God hears and answers our prayers. It has been confirmed to me constantly.
Although we have had a lot of hard times this week, its made those little things that much brighter.
Focus on the good, and search for the better.
(a scripture from the chapter she read...Moroni 7:48)
48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure.Amen.

Les quiero mucho.
con amor,
Hermana Waddell
