July 31, 2016 Faith is a hope in that which is not seen which is true

Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves—It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.

Now behold, would not this increase your faith? I say unto you, Yea; nevertheless it hath not grown up to a perfect knowledge.Alma 32:28-29

Even senior missionaries need a snow cone to beat the heat on a hot summer day!

The day was HOT, the sprinklers were blasting blocking our way and the new apartment was on the third floor, but these four Super Stars made quick work of the job that needed to be done without a complaint!

The Saturday before transfers is typically a busy day for us. 
This Saturday was no exception as we set up a new home for two unsuspecting Elders, prepared for a few possible trios and made final plans to complete the new senior missionary apartment.
 We spent our last Sunday with friends in the Bainbridge Ward where we were released from our callings :( and bid a fond farewell. 
Tonight we attended a special meeting in the Star Stake Center to officially welcome us into the Verona Ward.

It's been a hard week filled with many challenges! 
Some that have seriously tried our patience, but all that have provided us with an opportunity to grow and become better.

 And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is white, yea, and pure above all that is pure; and ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, neither shall ye thirst.
Then, my brethren, ye shall reap the rewards of your faith, and your diligence, and patience, and long-suffering, waiting for the tree to bring forth fruit unto you.
