I don't have a ton of time today because we're going to be running around doing some stuff. But I definitely learned this week that missionary work has it's trials. This last Sunday was not very successful for us as far as numbers and expectations. Neither of our daters came to church and we only had 1 investigator there. The lowest we've had in probably forever actually.
But there were other successes. Several recent converts who haven't been to church in a couple months came back and were fellowshipped right back in. We were able to teach some awesome member lessons with those that came to church.
I read a talk called "The Atonement and the Missionary" ( I think) by Elder Holland today. He says that missionary work is supposed to be hard. In order for us to really receive Christ's atonement in it's fullest we need to go through our own Gethsemane and walk the path to Calvary.
I know that Christ lives and that he will walk beside us in our trials.
Love Elder Keller
