Miracles do still happen!

So last Wednesday as we got to our church the fire alarm was going off, so after checking to make sure there was no fire we were able to get it turned off. After that had happened we received a call from a random person who gave us a referral, after talking with him we found out the guy only worked in our area but lived about 3 hours away, but I think it is cool just having someone phone you and tell you to try and contact someone. Then come Friday we were able to visit a less active and her non member husband who are housing someone who is over here working, and he is from Ukraine and we got to hear about what is going on over there right now. We then got to attend General Conference on Saturday and Sunday. Then come Monday when I went to exchange an Item I got it just so happened that they were restocking the rack with the right size I needed, so I feel like that was a blessing I received.

I loved how Jorg Clemingat said we need to forgive others quickly, I feel like that is one of the most challenging things to do is to forgive others, and then to do it quickly seems like it can almost be impossible sometimes, so I definitely feel like it is something I know I need to work on. I also loved how Dieter F Uchtdorf had talked about how when we are to look for someone to blame we should look to ourselves first.

Then I read in the scriptures how it is important to follow the commandments that we are given from God. I know that if we are able to follow the teachings of Christ he will have no choice but to save us and it sounds like it is so easy to follow the teachings that it makes you wonder how anyone could fall off the path so easily. eh? I feel like I would be lost and I would hate my life if I didn't know of Jesus' atoning sacrifice. I love the Gospel and I know it is true, and if anyone of you have any doubt whether it is true I would invite you to read the Book of Mormon and then pray with a sincere desire to know for your self whether it is true, and you will receive an answer.

I Love You all and I hope you all are able to have a great week to come.

Elder Warkentin
