My companion is the bomb! He has a great attitude and is really happy. We are working so hard and we even made a cake together. He even told me he really wants to help his family since his entire family aren't members of the church.
So this week we had a baptism lined up for Ellen, but on the day of her baptism...it seemed like she vanished off the face of the earth. Out of all the confusion, I felt the spirit during the day saying to me everything will be okay. We could not find her at all and she was not baptized. So my companion Elder G Santos and I went home. While at home I continued to think about what could have happened to Ellen...saying things like "Why would this happen? How could this happen? This makes no sense!" I was so confused and a bit bitter. ALL OF A SUDDEN...I felt the spirit saying to me "You will do my will and nothing else" and at that very moment I saw how childish I was.
I knew at that moment that if the Lord wanted it to happen he would have made it possible and I am here on the earth to do the Lords will not mine. I learned to be humble, to listen to the spirit, and follow the Lord because (as always) he knows best.
