Elder Nixon is great as always. We have a lot of fun together and he came out on the mission so prepared. I'm grateful for that becasue he has certainly jumped right into the work and continues to be a blessing in my life as well as the lives of those we teach. He does a remarkable job at being himself in the work which is something that I've really been working. My nerves tend to get the best of me.
Yesterday we had dinner at the part member family that we've really been spending a lot of time with and we taught them all the Restoration! Everyone was very receptive except for the dad. He doesn't really belive in a God as we do but he does believe in a higher power. He told us he didn't really want to pursue learning more and we asked him if it was becasue he might be afraid that what he knows to be true might change. He said yes. It's important for all of us to remember that we may not have all knowledge but as we adhere to God's commandments we receive more and more light which turns to knowledge and truth D&C 93:28-32. We cannot be afraid of what we can become because we're comfortable with where we're at.
Sometimes we think that our efforts in the past can carry us into the future. Not so! Although life has it's ups and downs we can never be satisfied with what we achieved in the past. God's plan is intended to put us on paths to experience miracles daily! There is work yet to accomplish and as we faithfully seek God's hand every day we can continue to experience his love as we help others find it as well.
I know that when we seek we will find
It's great to hear that you've been hard at work on family history mom. The spirit of Elijah is working through you. Keep it up. I haven't been able to do the family name you sent. If you guys want to go ahead with it that's fine. Not sure when I'd get to it.--
