Well, we were a duo but now we are a trio. Sister Briggs was finally able to get home to fix her shoulder. I am sad to see her go, but she needed to go home early.
There were a lot of experiences with Sister Briggs this week that were pretty miraculous. Sister Briggs and Sister Lazatin went shopping for their 72 hour kits, and then Sister Briggs left her wallet in the jeepney. Now, this is different than leaving it on a bus, because there are hundreds of jeepneys. We were sure that it was gone for good, and it had all of her cards,id's,and personal information. She was almost in tears, then she told us, I will just say a prayer.
The next day they went to the church to find out more information about sister Briggs' departure, and then, the jeepney driver walked to the church and gave her her wallet. The pesos that were in the wallet were gone, but her liscense and cards were all in there. We were all stunned, how was this possible?
Then, when we were helping her to get her bags to the church so she could leave, we were worried we would have to go by the road to find a taxi because she had a lot of stuff,and someone just happened to be going home the same time they were about to leave, and on the way back they were able to catch him. Sometime the Lord is too good to us.
All I can say is that the Lord helps us in all of our lives, from the simple to the spectacular. And why? Because He loves us beyond all imagination. No matter what we go through, there are those tender mercies that are just for us. It is always in His time, but if we look for them we will be amazed.
Being a missionary isn't always fun, but every time I feel discouraged there is an experience that helps me to remember that God is there for me. For each of us.
Remember that the Lord is always there for each us, He is a prayer away.
P.S. This is one of the members of the ward. Sleep time 2-4pm ;D.
