This week has been so full of ups and downs! Shocker I know... But definitely more ups than downs that's for sure. We saw a lot of miracles! Yesterday, I was really sad because none of the investigators who had promised they would come to church did. I was slightly angry because we had done everything that we were supposed to do and they just didn't come (agency is reallllyyyy annoying sometimes let me tell ya...). So I was feeling all sorts of sorry for myself when a member came over to us and introduced his friend to us by saying "she's very interested about the church and would like to learn more." WHAT?! Crazy crazy miracle. I jumped right out of my slump and slipped right back into happy, missionary, Sister Allgaier. Do what you're supposed to and blessings WILL come!
This week we watched the Life of Thomas S. Monson with an interpreter for language study and I was amazed at his dear wife, Frances. She never complained! If the wife of the prophet of the church never complained surely the small-town, Utah missionary doesn't need to complain either!! So I made it a goal not to complain this week. I was tested...oh man was I tested... (Sidenote: if you are not dressed, please PLEASE do not answer the door. It's just not neccesary *gags*) I am an imperfect human but I did the very best I could and it changed everything! I was such a happy missionary!
The scripture of the week comes from the Book of Mormon (again).
"Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend."
Belief is so powerful!! If you can't believe but you have the desire to believe, it says in Alma to let that desire work in you. Keep praying, keep reading your scriptures, keep coming to church and belief will come. Eventually, belief will turn into faith. And faith is beautiful! So work at it!!
I love y'all! Oh and just so you know, because Christmas falls on a PDay my pday for next week has been moved. I will be having PDay on Saturday, December 23rd. So I will talk to y'all real soon. 🎉
