No Comfort In The Growth Zone
'Crazy good week!!! I have learned so much! So there are a bunch of pest control salesman Return missionaries here from Utah and they have been going on splits with us! They are so good! Especially with their sales experience. We saw so many miracles.
We found a lady that said she was Athiest but we felt we should keep trying anyway so we kept asking questions and it turns out she lost her faith in God when her Grandfather died a long time ago... It was really sad and she started crying and we ended up teaching her a little bit and she went from Athiest to wanting to get baptized and get her faith back. She had a lot of questions we told her we had the answer to. We are meeting back with her in a week.
Another group of people told us no... we kept talking and they told us "you are wasting your time talking to us we won't change." we replied "We have some time to waste." Then the Spirit took over and 20 minutes later they were asking question after question and we got a return appointment for Thursday.
It just goes to show more people are prepared than you think. Most the people that are ready for the Gospel just don't know it and when looking for the elect it just takes a little persistence and love and if they are willing they will feel the love of God and will start to make a change. I love this Gospel and I know that it is true. If we give it our all to show God we are willing to do what he asks, he will bless us and he will fulfill all of his promises because he can not and will not lie. I am so grateful to be a missionary and have so many great influences in my life.
There is No growth in the Comfort zone, and no Comfort in the growth zone. Get out there and do your best and then a little more. Step by step God will help you be molded into your best self!
We have MLC this week and the Boston West Zone is doing a fantastic job! So excited for this month it is going to be great!
I love you all and hope you all have an awesome 4th of July!
Love, Elder Richins'
