Life is good over here in Canada! I have a new companion, his name is Elder Wilson.
I've had quite a few very interesting and powerful things occur this week that I would like to share. In an effort to make Elder Prince's (my last companion/trainer) last few days in the mission field amazing (he's going home soon), I went to Heavenly Father and pleaded that we would be able to teach a couple first lessons before Elder Prince left. In my experience thus far, teaching isn't something that occurs very often here in Woodstock (no worries, that is quickly changing; actually it already has!).
We set out on Wednesday (our last full day together before transfers). It was just hopping! We met all kinds of people, taught a couple great lessons, and gained some investigators. I was thinking, "WHOA, this is COOL!"
Well, at the end of the day Elder Prince said, "Elder Craig, I want you to know that I prayed really hard that our last day together would not only be fun, but a successful day and boy was it ever!" Since that day we have seen some great things happening around finding people. We have been running into all kinds of people who are willing to listen and some are inviting us into their home!
It's truly refreshing and I am so grateful that I'm right here, right now! I would also like each of you to know that my sense of commitment has increased and it is because of this that Heavenly Father has entrusted both me and Elder Wilson with some of His children. I can testify to you that COMMITMENT IS POWERFUL and when our Heavenly Father sees that we are willing to put in the work, it is then, and only then, that actual WORKING MIRACLES start to occur!
I know that I can work much, much, more! Loving you all, and hear me when I say this...I APPRECIATE the support from each of you!
Thanks Dad for sending cash for steak. It was a treat we thoroughly enjoyed and a nice good-bye meal for Elder Prince!
This is what commitment looks like at the end of the day (I miss Elder Prince. He was a hard worker).
