The Field is White Already to Harvest
This week has been really hard with health issues popping up again or increasing in their intensity but that won't bring me down. I know that part of the reason why the health issues are popping up is because there is something big planned for me coming up. Part of it was shown this week.
While we were in an area that isn't usually visited (not many people, small town) visiting an investigator who referred herself online at mormon.org and requested a missionary visit she told us of a friend of hers that asked if she could borrow her Book of Mormon. She said no but that she would send us over to her house and so she did. As we met this wonderful lady she told us of 14 other people from her previous congregation left last week because of a disagreement and were all looking for truth elsewhere. I am not trying to sound grateful for the fact that there was a disagreement but I am grateful that she was willing to open up to us about it and possibly share with those friends of hers of the truth that she has found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
The field truly has been planted and prepared and is ready for the harvest. We are seeing people pop up all over who at one time or another had looked into the church or knew someone who was LDS and it wasn't the right time but now they are coming to us, asking us questions and wanting to be taught.
I am here for a reason. I know that I am.
I want to invite each of you to think about your past, think about what has got you to the point that you are at now as well as your future, who you truly want to be. Not just a week from now, or a year from now, but who do you want to be at the end of your life? Who do you want to be known as by those who follow you? Are you on that track? Are you taking the steps you need to take to get to that point? If not, I invite you to start now. If you don't know where you want to be or who you want to become, don't just go off of what others have said you should be, make it a matter of prayer. I know that our Heavenly Father knows and loves each and every one of you. He knows who you wanted to be before this life and who you are now, ask Him for the guidance and He will guide you.
I love you all! Have a great week!
