I'm not sure I would say this week was any better than any other week and in fact I was definitely sad but there was a difference. I knew all was okay and that there was good all around. Back to the sad moment, my companion and I received a call on Thursday and it was a number we didn't know but we answered and received the news that one of our investigators had passed away. We will call him BT, I had been teaching him since July, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to have gotten to know him and his wife. They have influenced my life and I was able to reflect on that this week. I know on the other side that missionaries are teaching him and I can just hear him say "tegey" or "of course" just like he always would when we would invite him to do something. (:
We were teaching Little O and Rainbow yesterday and the week before we taught prayer and I gave them a prayer chart I had made for them to mark with stickers everyday that they had prayed. Unfortunately it was only a weeks worth but I was even happier to see that Rainbow had created her own in her little school notebook, that every time she would pray she would draw a star in this bow that she had drawn! I'm pretty sure angels in heaven have books full of stars and prayers that were heard. (:#did you think to pray? #GiveYourselfAStar
I'm grateful for a family who offered to buy me winter boots cause I was unable to find some last week.
I'm grateful for my Mongolian grandma who gave me gloves this week cause she knew I was from a warm city.
I'm grateful for Little B and the example he is to many of our investigators and that he worries about me being sad.
I am grateful I held on to the good this week and that I really felt that the blessings from on high this week were here and have been here all along I just noticed them more this week because I chose to notice them. Grasp the good. Let go of the bad and find those blessings from on high, they are more plentiful when you are searching for them.
