Well this week had all of the ups and downs a week could have, but in the end and looking back on my week, because my companion and I worked like crazy through all the downs, our Heavenly Father blessed us so so so much in the end. We were able to have the spirit with us in lessons where we really needed the hearts of our investigators to be softened so they could make the progress that they needed... and it happened! We were able to make the progress that we had planned for our week. I have a testimony about the importance of goals and plans. Having our goals and plans really thought out and really do our part because if we fully do our part God will fully do His. Like the story of  the brother of Jared and the boats and the fact that they needed air and light. The Lord told him he couldn't do windows or fire... but is there really anything that the Lord can’t do? No! He told him no windows and no fire because that plan was too simple, the brother of Jared didn't earn the help of the Lord by this plan. But WHEN he sat and really thought about what he could do, when he climbed to the top of the mountain and really searched for the 16 beautiful rocks and then asked the Lord that if he would touch the stones with his finger and make them glow, then he knew that they would be able to have light, and they had light! That is what we need to do with our plans and goals. Really do all of our part and then the Lñord will do all his part because we have to show that we are worthy of his help.

I love all of you and I hope that you are all doing good! It is all good here in Peru. It was getting cold and then it was hot and now it is getting cold again so maybe it will stay cold this time, but who knows! I wish you all a fantastic week and want you to all really look and pray to notice the hand of your Father in Heaven in your day because I promise he is always there, sometimes it just takes a little bit of hope, faith, and patience to notice it!

Love, Hermana Brasher

  1. Oh Hermana Brasher... Your testimony strengthen mine! I love looking at the brother of Jared's experience through your eyes. I have never thought of it like that before. See, you can "teach an old dog new tricks." Also your goal setting testimony is contagious. We all love you so much here in America. xox
