This past week was a roller coaster of emotions and happenstances. It was pretty crazy, but THAT'S LIFE! Yay! I love it when life is experienced! 
Last week we has that couple drop, and we were a bit discouraged. THIS WEEK we got 3 referrals from the members on people to visit, so it looks like the work is moving forward anyway!
 Last week we went spelunking and that's where we got those pictures! 
God is currently blessing me with opportunities to exercise patience. 
I want to talk a bit about finding out truth for yourself. James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, lest him ask of God; that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given you."
We must all find, for ourselves, the truth. We cannot depend on someone else's beliefs, we must know for ourselves. We need to ask God what the truth is. He will tell us. 
 The amazing thing about this Restored Gospel is that the only way to find the truth about it is to follow the example of Joseph Smith. He wanted to know, for himself, which church is true, so he prayed and asked God.
He received an answer. God and Jesus Christ appeared to him and called him to be a new prophet. He was called at a young age, like Samuel, and he was unlearned, like Peter. 
I know that he was called to restore the truth on the earth, and I know that you can know it too. God will answer your prayer if you ask in faith and real intent. If he knows that you will act on what you receive, he will give. 
Honoring God
