Well the Garden Program is in full swing, we’ve been fertilizing and tilling all week! Next step is to start building the fences around the gardens and setting up the water drip system and, of course, planting!
Mike Descheenie is doing really, really great! That conference talk was a miracle and I believe all of your prayers on his behalf have strengthened him a lot! While we were Hogan hunting for new people to teach, we found a young man named Kendrick who is actually from the Philippines, he invited us right in and was really excited about our message, he committed to read and pray. I just love finding people and planting seeds, I think it’s very rewarding. Sometimes it’s overwhelming to look out across the valley and know everything from Shiprock to the mountains way in the distance is your area…you’re one of two people in the world that have been set apart as full time servants in that area, it’s up to you to find, teach, and retain…the goal is everyone. But how cool is it that God trusts 18-21 year olds to do this, that’s a lot of responsibility. One thing that I learned this week is summed up in this line:
“…it seems to be an integral part of the Lord’s plan for the lives of faithful Saints that even though they have planned carefully, worked hard, and used wisely their available energies and talents-all of which needs to be done—invariably they will be confronted with challenges that can only be met and overcome by the Lord’s making bare his holy arm.”-Pace
Miracles are part of God’s Church! Expect miracles and rely on the Lord for strength to overcome your trials that you cannot physically overcome alone.
Love you all!
