Each day we should strive to learn and grow. Yesterday I had a growing expeirence. So Elder Neubert, our Zone Leader, was down working with us. We went out walking in the afternoon, and no one we tried was home. So we went to our ward mission leader's home, and he said that he wanted to go see some people with us that night. So Elder Walker went with him, and Elder Neubert and I tried to see some people. We prayed and tried some people and prayed and tried some more people, and probably prayed a few more times, and tried a few more people, but no one was available to meet with us. So it was a time that Elder Neubert and I were able to talk. We discussed some of the struggles that I had been having and how to overcome them. The Spirit was strong and I learned and grew. So then we still had about an hour of the night left. We prayed yet again, but this time it was more sincere and more fervent. After the prayer Elder Neubert grabbed the binder we have with information about previous contacts missionaries have had in the past. As we looked through it there were 2 names that came out to us. We decided to travel the distance to where they were and try them even though it was already 8:20 at night. We did so, and had a great spiritual expeirence. We met a man who has recently had a life changing even in his life, and we were able to feel of his strong spirit and talk with him of the gospel. I hope it helped him a little, because the experience sure strengthened my testimony.
I know that Christ lives and loves us, and as we turn to Him each and everyday with open hearts and minds He will bless our lives and we will learn and grow!!
