Well…this week really flew by. A lot went on and then we finished the week watching the Saturday and Sunday sessions of conference, so you can definitely say we ended the week on a high note.
We were working hard this week. At one point in the week we had two investigators with baptismal dates but due to certain events they both ended up not only falling through but we also lost any and all contact that we had with them. They were good people who really had desires to follow our Savior Jesus Christ but due to the decisions made by other people they were unable to do so at the moment.
I did have a pretty cool experience in between conference sessions on Sunday though. The sisters working in Palermo had an investigator that needed a baptismal interview so I took care of that. It was interesting to hear this Man’s testimony after only really knowing the church for a total of two weeks. He had a firm testimony of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and of the Prophet, Joseph Smith. He said that it all just made sense, that it was all so simple for him.
Our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy as his sons and daughters in this life. So he gave us a plan that was so simple that to some, it’s just common sense. Others may have to exercise their faith to truly believe that their Heavenly Father truly knows and understands them and desires that they follow the loving plan that he has provided us.
Sometimes we overthink things, thats human nature. If we take a step back at times and look at the simple things. We will be able to see just how much He truly loves us. I hope everyone can do just that this week and see just how much our Heavenly Fathers wants us to return and live with him again one day.
