Sacrifice for the Lord


Hi everybody! I hope you had a great week!  This last week was great for me! We had some awesome stuff happen!
Elder Palmer and I had a lesson with the investigator who called the church last week. She is great! She is really excited to read the Book of Mormon and she came to church on Sunday! She even wants to get baptized on August 6th! We are really excited to keep teaching her! We also found a new investigator through our bishop last week! Our bishop invited a friend from work to come to church and he came! After that we went to the bishop’s house and taught him about the restoration. He liked it and was willing to take a Book of Mormon. We will teach him again in the next few weeks.
Finding these two people has been as huge blessing for Elder Palmer and I. Our investigators have been dropping us like crazy and we haven’t been able to teach a lot the last few weeks. As a district we decided to fast to find new investigators. It has been a testimony builder for me to see how when we sacrifice for the Lord, He blesses us. We see many times in the scriptures when the prophet or the people of God have to sacrifice something to get something from the Lord. Every time that Alma is about to go out and teach he has to pray and fast before he goes. Why would it be any different for his missionaries now?
I know that the Lord requires us to sacrifice and that it can be hard in the moment but in the end the reward is always worth the sacrifice.
I love you all and I hope you have an awesome week!
