God’s Will and Timing (Danielle)

Heyy heyyy heyyyy!!

So the O_____ family had a date for the 26th of April but, the sad thing is that they will not be getting baptized on that date.   The issue was that they weren’t married and they haven’t come to church because every weekend they go to Preston, Idaho because her parents live up there.   We had a lesson with them yesterday and in the beginning of the lesson they told us that they think that it’s too early for marriage.   At the same time they have 2 children together and have been together for 6+ years.   So we read the Family Proclamation with them and they understood marriage and the importance of it.   By the end of the lesson they told us that they will be married.   They all still want to be baptized which is good.   It seems that the boyfriend wants to be married more than the girlfriend.   We did everything in our power to help them be baptized this month/transfer.   Even though we didn’t see the fruit of our labors this transfer, I know that we will see it next transfer.Something that I realized in this area was that the people who were baptized when the former missionaries were here are all less active and a lot of them are nowhere to be found.   Also the former investigators…on the progress record it seemed that everything was going good and then everything just stopped.   Weird, right?   So when we see these people they are like, “it’s been a long time that you came by.” They are saying *you as in missionaries.   Then we asked what happened and why did the missionaries stop coming by and then they say, “I don’t know, they just stopped coming by.”   So we are meeting those people and hopefully they are ready to receive us.   Hopefully when the missionaries stopped coming by for some reason it gave them motivation to have them back. So there’s a lot of hope there.

I’m striving to have more faith in God’s timing.   Sometimes I get down because we were so close to getting a baptism and we worked so hard this transfer but I have to remember that everything is the Lord’s will and timing.   The Lord knows what’s best and He is God and I am not. 

Love always and forever,

  1. This is for Danielle…because they (your investigators) are willing to do what is right and create a family in marriage the Lord will bless you and bless them for eternities…now and to come…so the real work you did in getting them to commit to marriage will have a multiplicity that you cannot possibly see in its entirety…except possibly thru a vision. Which you could ask the Lord to give you in regards to this or even through a blessing. You cannot see the effect of the gospel in the children and their children and the countless lives that may have been blessed because of your courage in testifying of them regarding marriage and your faith…to remain to see that would prevent you from accomplishing your own life’s work, but you were there for this key time so that their course would turn unto the Lord. Your hands are clean and your heart is pure and you will be able to witness a video of their ceremony or perhaps get special permission to attend…but irrespective of this you have changed their course and their children’s lives and the Lord and their family will continue to bless and praise you in the years to come….it will not be easy or smooth but at least they will remember how they felt and where to turn to hear the Word of God. With lots of love your sister Cena Senemar-Tretola
