Yesterday we had four investigators at church. Which I know doesn't sound all that grand, but for us that was a down right miracle. And as a missionary, it's the little things that make the worth worthwhile...
Pitot highlighted his Book of Mormon while he read.
Yuron used the calender the other sisters gave him to mark his prayer and scripture reading.
Rita came to church.
Lena and Fransisco remembered how to say, "Joseph Smith".
It's the little things that make all the difference, which is how it should be, because it's the little things that make a difference to God as well.
If we took that extra five minutes in the morning to get on our knees and pray.
If we read our scriptures first, before Netflix.
If we chose to sing in the ward choir instead of get in that extra hour nap.
If we read the assigned readings for Sunday School and came prepared to class (that's for you Sister King).
These things are little, but they show our faith, and the make God happy! And on a mission, they make me happy too! I'm grateful for this little bit of time where I get to better appreciate the little things that God appreciates as well.
Small things move the work forward (Alma 37:7), so when Sister Friaca and I were fist pumping because we had four investigators at church, I'm sure God was cheering as well, cheering for Rita, Maria, Maria, and Pitot separately. And one of my favorite things is watching Him bless their lives so they know He's real and He's rooting for them.
Sometimes, he sends us missionaries blessings too, like four investigators at church, to remind us that His work is real, and He's rooting for us (D&C 64:33).
So, keep doing the little things, you've got a heavenly cheer squad rooting for you, and an earthly one too. #ForeverFamilies
