"Nevertheless, I will bring you up again out of the depths of the sea..." -Ether 2:24

Life has been...weird this week. Good, but weird. My leaders (District and Zone) have been giving Sister Harrison and I some extra things to study and read since we're kind of on our own, and it's been so helpful. So here we are, just truckin' along...meeting new people...teaching investigators..then BAM!

I get sick.


It was really rough. Sister Harrison and I were not pleased. One thing we learned from this little escapade is that sometimes the things you think you want, aren't what you really want, (like extra study/sleep time), and that this is not an idle work.

We struggled this weekend. Being locked in a house is not a fun thing, espeially when you're used to being out and about more often than you are inside. But luckily we had wonderful Elders who took extremely good care of us, as well as a few members, and couples. The highlight was when our Zone and District Leader came and gave us the sacrament because neither of us could attend either meeting. So. Good.

This week I've finished the Book of Mormon again. This book of such a game changer, I don't understand how anyone can live without it. (I guess that's why I'm here, eh?)

So I've been reading in the book of Ether, the story of the brother of Jared. For those of you who don't know, this story is very near and dear to me, as it is part of the reason I'm here in Canada. (For more info check out : The Title. The Mission. The Dream.)

In chapter 6 it talks about how the barges that the Jaredites built were "many times buried in the depths of the sea.." (vs. 6) but that as they cried unto the Lord, He did bring them up again. In verse 8 it says "And it came to pass that the wind did never cease to blow towards the promised land.."

There are times where we are buried in the sea, when the waves never cease to crash in around us, and it seems like we will never see the surface again. But the Lord will always bring us back to the surface, and He never ceases in driving us onward to our own promised lands.

Even if we can't quite see that far.

On that note, I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and enjoying life wherever you are. XO
