The Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Los "pescadores de hombres" de Urquiza!

So this week we kept up with our area "blitzs" but with a little change. This time we went not only to contact and share the Book of Mormon, but we also sang Christmas songs in different parks and plazas! We sang as a district accompanied by a Sister with her violin and then some of us would go out and do some contacting. It was a little embarrassing at first and we didn't have the best start, but every day turned out really well. The spirit was really strong! That was basically all we did this week so we were left (again) with little time each day in our area to work. We still worked really hard and Saturday night we felt good because we had 3 investigators waiting to go to church (one with a baptism date!). Sunday came around and as it got closer to 9:30 we found out that none of them were going to be able to make it and it was hard because of all the work we put in I figured that we should have at least seen something. Then right before the meeting started, a recently returned missionary came up to us and presented her friend. He stayed all 3 hours and felt good. Who knows if he will progress or not (obviously we have the faith that yes) but it was at least a nice little blessing after the week we had.

Sometimes it happens like that, well a lot of times. We have an idea of how something is going to work out and in the end it doesn't. When that happens one of two things can happen; we can either get discouraged because things didn't go how we had imagined or we can recognize and remember that someone a lot greater has a better plan and that if we are doing the things we should, things are going to work out better than we could ever have thought. It´s like what it says in D&C 58  "For verily I say unto you, blessed is he that keepeth my commandments, whether in life or in death; and he that is faithful in tribulation, the reward of the same is greater in the kingdom of heaven. Ye cannot behold with your natural eyes, for the present time, the design of your God concerning those things which shall come hereafter, and the glory which shall follow after much tribulation. For after much tribulation come the blessings. Wherefore the day cometh that ye shall be crowned with much glory; the hour is not yet, but is nigh at hand."
I´m still waiting to see some of the blessings and fruits, but I have the hope that they'll come.  -Elder Steele
