Jacob 5

Jul 3 2017

This week I've been studying Jacob Chapter 5. So needless to say, it's been a good week! Something about reading the prophecies about Gods plan to gather his people gives you new eyes to missionary work! And boy, did the Lord provide!!

Like, 4 huge miracles took place this week.
One came at the sacrifice of a turtle. Sounds weird, but we hit a turtle in our car on accident, and we pulled over to see the damage. It got munched. It was super sad. And funny. Anyway! As we're standing there, a security guard of the building we're by comes over and asks what we're doing, and we explain that we killed a turtle and were leaving soon, but she was fascinated!! And then she was fascinated with us being missionaries! And then we taught her the whole restoration! And then she wants to get baptized!! Ya. Pretty stinking cool.
Another one, our good friend Matthew accepted a date for the 29th of July! And then insisted on coming tracting with us. Legits this kid has only come to church twice, and he's out on the streets knocking on doors, and flipping rocking it. It was so sick!!!! He loved it!! He wants to go on a mission!

This, and many other instances this week feed my testimony of the truthfulness of the sculpture in Jacob 5 that says "if ye labor with your might with Meyer shall have joy in the fruit which I shall lay up unto myself..." 

Truly laboring with the lord brings the greatest joy I've ever experienced. I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the surest way to find peace, and its such an honor to be a small part!

Love y'all!
