A Step of Faith-A Day of Joy

Dear Family,

Yesterday was a day of joy. Ally the first investigator I taught on my
mission came to church after nearly two years of worrying and
wondering she took a step of faith. I think she enjoyed it and I
really hope she felt the spirit. We went into Relief Society to
announce our activity and I was looking around and  barely found her
because she fitted in seamlessly. It brings tears to my eyes to know
it all pays off.

As well the Sisters from the English Ward had a guy
named Kevin come to church also. A few weeks ago Elder Jones and I
were having a rough day and we just wanted to knock some doors to get
the spirit back. The first door we knocked on was Kevin's. As we were
driving away we saw the sisters walking and gave them the information
and the return appointment we had set.

Saturday night the Sisters
called and told us that he would be coming to church the next day.
Their sacrament mtg had already begun and we were in the foyer waiting
for Ward Council when the Sisters stepped out followed by Kevin to
show has that he made it to church.It all seemed surreal.

Much of the
time we don't see the good that we do, but there are times when God
decides to reassure us that our effort and sacrifice counts. Those who
are familiar with this work know that there exists no price too high
for the worth of one soul. It's a feeling that no words can explain.

These investigators may never know how invested we become in them.
These feelings cannot be bought with money. They are bought with our
own personal sacrifice. But sacrifice is a strange word... in the
Lords work it's never a loss... just a step of faith in the right

This week we put out our radio announcement for our activity.
Wednesday our poster should be in the paper as well. #wegohard

Love you all!

Elder Weiss
