First I wish to relay a true story:
Once upon a time Elder Whitesides and Elder Breinholt were waiting at the bus stop, and heart a faint, recurring, high pitched squeal behind them. Elder Breinholt followed the sound into the grass to investigate, and came upon a poor, screaming frog, half enveloped in the mouth of a snake. Despite the slight tramautization the Elders had from seeing this sight, they quickly whipped out their cameras to take a picture, but in their sudden movement scared the snake and the frog escaped, hopping away violently while being chased by the venomous serpent. The end.
Well this week we had the opportunity to teach a few VERY spirit-filled lessons. I don’t have time to talk much about detail, but on top of the miraculous finds we had last week, this week we were led to three other people at perfect timing. It’s been the same the past two weeks with people we have found: One night they pray asking for guidance or plead for something more, and then the next day, we show up in their lives and they see it is an answer to their prayer. My friends and family, it is not simply coincidence, often, God reaches out to people through people. We just have the great fortune of being one of the tools He uses to bless the lives of some people here in Michigan.
I will be able to explain about these people in greater detail next week, if they continue to follow through on this hand Heavenly Father has extended to them.
Please, recognize when He is reaching out, and follow through with it, my friends.
I love you all and hope you have a marvelous week!
Excited to turn 20 this Saturday! Plus the other Elders are having a baptism that day so that’s sweet!
