Feb 20--Putting ourselves out there

We saw a lot of miracles this week! We have committed to be more engaged in finding by doing things we don't normally do - go into stores, go door to door with surveys, go English class streetboarding, and other things. We have seen so much more success this week, and have found two more investigators. An interesting and difficult part of this week is that those investigators are people who are in a very rough part of life right now, and are stuck in very bad addictions. We have been studying and praying for ways to help them with that. 

This week has been a testimony builder as we have worked harder, opened our mouths, and invited people to learn more about Jesus Christ. A scripture in 1 Nephi 17 has had a great impact on me this week: 

And I will also be your light in the wilderness; and I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ye shall keep my commandments; wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led.

The phrase "ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led" seems, to me, to be one of the greatest blessings. As we seek to build our faith in the Savior, he will help us. We may at times be prone to think that success comes because of our own skill or ability, but this week we have seen the Lord preparing a way for us, when we just do all we can. 

I hope you all have a great week. We have Elder Holland this week, so we are getting hearts and minds ready for that.

Today we went to a mountain with a big face on it.
