Fun in good ole Ridgecrest!

This week was killer! Elder Lykins and I had lots of fun trying to find people and teaching. It seems like we never have a moment to breathe, which is definitely the preference to not being busy enough. This week we sadly didn’t have any investigators attend church which was a huge bummer because the last month we’ve had at least one investigator at church and sometimes more. From this experience and others I’ve had recently I’ve realized that we need to count our many blessings and rid ourselves of any entitlement we might have. We’re really not entitled to much in this life. We need to work for what we get. I love the scripture found in D&C 130:20-21, “There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated— And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.”

What a wonderful element of the Doctrine of Christ!
Joy comes not from thinking that we are unconditionally owed certain things like investigators that come to church. It comes from being grateful.
I’m so thankful for all of your testimonies and your support!
