Turn to the Lord with Full Purpose of Heart

Mosiah 7:19, 33

19 Therefore, lift up your heads, and rejoice, and put your trust in God, in that God who was the God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob; and also, that God who brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, and caused that they should walk through the Red Sea on dry ground, and fed them with manna that they might not perish in the wilderness; and many more things did he do for them.
33 But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.

So, I’ve picked up my study in the Book of Mormon again and have been plowing through. I’ve learned and relearned a lot. King Benjamin’s talk is just awesome. It is totally worth some study if you get a chance.

I’ve been really thinking about my relationship with God this week. I’ve learned and realized that I need to work on that. So, I have been. I can now honestly testify that when we pray to God with faith more frequently, He hears and answers us in the way that He knows appropriate. For example, when we were just walking after all of our plans had fallen through, I offered a silent prayer to my Father in Heaven for guidance in what we could do. A few minutes later, I thought that we should visit one of our old investigators that was fairly nearby. When we spoke with her, she was super happy to see us. She didn’t think that we wanted to visit her any more, so she was excited to see us.

Other than that, there isn’t too much else to talk about. I’m getting close to being done and my time is down to just one transfer. I turn 21 on Thursday. I’m not sure how I feel about this transfer because it is the last one — it is both hard and exciting to think about the mission coming to a close.

All of us have birthdays from January to the beginning of June.

The field is white, already to harvest -- redux. (This one is better picture than the last one. The wheat is even whiter and the sun gives a cool effect.)

Have a great week. I’m off to have an adventure, I guess.

There was a parade getting ready to move out in our neighborhood. It was an elementary school where several kids in the branch go, so it was exciting.
