Wow, what a whirlwind of a week! It was so fast and I can hardly remember what happened! Hermana Lyman and I get along so well! It is so fun to be with her and to be doing this work of salvation together! Her Spanish is improving so much and I am learning so much with her.
This week I have been thinking a lot about the will of God. Lots of times, we want things according to our timetable, and we forget that God has His own, perfect timetable. He has all the factors and all the outcomes that we cannot see, and He knows exactly what will help us the most. We think we know best when all we can see are the two steps directly in front of us, while he can see the beginning, middle, and end of the path. He knows the hills and the declines, and all the dangers on the trail. As we walk along, we would do well to remember His master plan, and cry out to Him, "Lord, I believe! Help thou mine unbelief," like a trusting father in the New Testament cried out. I am trying to trust more in His will and His timing every day. What a blessing it is to know that He knows the path, and that when we trust in Him, we don't have to worry about what comes next, because we can know that He will only give us the trials we can handle, and the ones that will help us become who He knows we can become. I encourage you all to pray for more trust in His plan, and to accept His will.
I am so lucky to be a missionary! Thank you for all your support and love.
