|LIGHT THE WORLD!!|
I feel like this update is gonna start off a lot like the last one, but wow, this week flew by. On Monday you tend to think, "Here we go. Anther week opens up!" and then it comes to Monday again and you think, "Where did my week go?"
This past little while has probably been the fastest bit of my mission. I feel like I only arrived in Dumbarton, but in reality, I have been here 3 months. It's been crazy. But this week we had a good time. We visited a lot of people, and we also set up an appointment to teach someone this upcoming week! So that is really exciting.
Her name is Nicola, and Elder Milburn met her on the bus, but she got off before we could get her info. So, he had been praying for a chance to meet her again, and lo and behold, who do we meet first thing the next day? Yep. Nicola. So that was really exciting! We got her info and we set up a meeting with her for this upcoming Wednesday. So that should be awesome.
We have also had a good time this week working with the members to help them "Light the World" this Christmas. So it has been really great this week. I hope all of you are giving your best effort to Light the World this Christmas, and I know it will bless your lives. Because that is really what this season is all about. Blessing lives. And we have a powerful example to look to in our Father in Heaven, who gave His only begotten Son to bless our lives, and then the example of the Son, in blessing the lives of those He came in contact with. What a perfect example for us.
We have had a lot of good times this week sharing Doctrine and Covenants 64:31-34 with the members. And it is indeed truly a scripture to live by!
31 And behold, I, the Lord, declare unto you, and my words are sure and shall not fail, that they shall obtain it.
32 But all things must come to pass in their time.
33 Wherefore, be not weary in welldoing, for ye are laying the
foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.
34 Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these
Love you all!
Till the Work is Done
