Thanksgiving - Hunger and thirst after righteousness


So this week went by fast.  Nothing too special happened, but we had some success and learned a few things.

One of our investigators we've had for a while accepted the invitation to be baptized, which was surprising.  She said she received an answer to her prayer and feels the need to be baptized.  I was so proud of her for praying and doing so sincerely, as I know she did.  Those who read and pray sincerely cannot do so without receiving a witness of the truth.  She has some changes to make, and so we are working with her on those.  We are excited for her though.

Also we made some progress with a few of our others investigators.  One who has been looking for work for a while, is now working for a sister in the church, so she is being fellowshipped really well. We have been having trouble getting her fellowshipped into the ward, as she lives super far away from everyone, so it was a definite answer to prayer that she's working with the sister from the ward.

Other things from this week. Went on exchanges with my district leader.  Played soccer on this trashed court with a couple investigators and missionaries from our district.  Nothing much, but a good week.  I did learn several great things. I learned more about those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, as it talks about in the Beatitudes.  Those who hunger and thirst after righteousness are self motivated and cannot be accused of pride nor self righteousness, because it is a desire that God approves and wants us to have.  Even more, He blesses us for the desire and gives us opportunities to serve, and challenges to test us to see if that is really the desire of our hearts.  In a way, it is a form of keeping our baptismal covenant.

Thanks again for all the support.
