The Tempest is Raging

Seeing what you know through a new perspective changes how you think. This week went by extremely fast, and though there were many hiccups, we still got the work done. I've come to the conclusion that patience is the most important tool you can develop. As we looked over our busy weekly schedule, all you can really do is organize and prepare for the storm. Through the assignment that I currently have, I have been able to gain a new perspective as to what makes missionary work effective. Even though it is a lot of work, it is all so incredibly organized and works fluidly.

Call it nerdy but in my personal study of the scriptures I even found a relation to this. In the 8th chapter of 3 Nephi, the people are facing the consequences of their wickedness. They were told for many years of the Lord´s coming, but their negligence prevented them from believing. The sign the Lord gave them was a great storm, even until the sun went black. Sometimes when we let all of our work get piled up, it seems that the sun isn't going to come up the next day. The chapter concludes with the regretful cries of the people, if only we had repented. If only we had prepared more. That is the spiritual thought of the week. Thanks for all those who take the time to read this, I really do appreciate it.
