Learning Patience

So we had a very successful week! Elder Dominguez and were just walking and he felt that we should knock on this door. So we do and a girl named C. came out. We gave our little dialogue (who we are why we’re here) and she let us in. We taught her about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the story of Joseph Smith and asked her to be baptized and she said yes! Without even a question! If she reads the Book of Mormon and comes to church she will be baptized of July 2. 

We then had an appointment with a man named R. who was baptized 3 months ago. We went but he wasn’t home. So we just decided to go visit some other members. We get to a members house and knock on the door and Ruben is there! With his cousin C. who is not a member. We taught him and also committed him to be baptized on July 2 as well. He said yes! We are very happy for the success that we have been blessed with.

Elder Dominguez and I have been praying and fasting for a long time to find new people to teach and we have been rewarded. I understand the words of Alma in chapter 26:27

"Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success."

I know that the Lord is truly mindful of all of his children. My experience as a missionary is definitely not unique. There are 18-20 y/o kids doing this all around the world (including my best friend Brig who just got called to California Oakland/San Francisco Mission!!!!) This is the Lord’s work not ours!
