No Effort is in Vain

No group email today- but here is an excerpt worth sharing :)

Yesterday we had a really cool experience. I was feeling sad because we left early and passed by for 6 different investigators to bring them to sacrament meeting and not one was able to go. There were some that weren't home (where they would be at 8 in the morning I don't know), one was sick, one was leaving to work (and the thing is that the situation here is a little different, there's not always work and people don't know how to save and be self sufficient so when there's work, you work,no other option) and one was leaving for a vacation. I felt bad because it's like the whole weeks efforts were wasted. But while sitting in Sacrament meeting, the man was sharing a message about how God, after commanding Abraham to sacrifice his son and then saving his son, provided the lamb for the sacrifice. But it was after the trial of his faith and after his obedience. We were sitting there when a man came up to us and presented us to a young couple with their two kids who he had invited to the church. We took their direction and visited them in the night time. They shared with us that they have gone to a lot of different churches because lately they feel like something is missing in their life and their house feels empty. They even invited a pastor to come and sprinkle blessed water (or something crazy like that) on the different parts of their house, but nothing has changed. We were only able to teach them a little bit (because I was in divisions with my companion and the lady that she was with had to go home for an emergency) but in the little that we shared, I could feel the Spirit so strongly testifying to them, and to ME. It was a nice reminder that God provides miracles for us. I sure hope that this couple can progress. They too, need to get married.

I have felt the Spirit testify so strongly to me that this is HIS work. He wants ALL of His children to return to Him, and will help us as we help HIm in this great cause to bring to pass the inmortality and eternal life of men, because that's what we're here for. Just as it says in 1 Corint58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. NO EFFORT IS IN VAIN. The results will not always be immediate, but they will come.

Bye Hermana Evans!
