Seek the Lord for Divine Aid and Counsel
This week has been a trying one for sure. Lots of ups and downs. My companion went home on Monday. I am sad that he is going home but also I know that it is probably the best thing for him. I will admit that it has been hard to keep motivated to do things when he wasn't. He always commented on how I would study every day even though he wasn't as regular at it and was impressed with my dedication. So I am an Office Elder for the next couple of days until Wednesday maybe.
Transfers are coming up and it has just been a crazy week. I don't think I have had a week like this in a long time. We were running all over the place to get things for the Elders in the District and then having the Zone Leaders over in Solihull for the day. So a very long and crazy week that is for sure. But I am back to what I do best on the Mission and that is moving people. We helped a family move this week to another house in Solihull. It was a fun day moving them. It seems like I get to know the members better when I am serving them. We are helping another family move sometime this week, if I am back in Solihull, so it should be a fun week.
The tender mercy for the week is being in the Mission Office for a little bit. It is nice to get into a new environment with Missionaries that I have not had the opportunity to meet and have a renewed spirit being around them and of course the Mission President and his Wife. And I think that the hardest thing for the week has been packing up Elder P. and just trying to get him off. I have enjoyed most of my time with him. It has been hard but worth it.
Remember that the Lord loves us all and wants what is best for us. Tad Callister said in the October General Conference "God will never leave us alone. God never gives us a responsibility without offering divine aid.." We just need to seek that divine aid and counsel.
Have a great week!
