09/25-17 - "Abo Sen? - What says the time?"

Time is flying. I've got 4 transfers left before I'm home. That is terrifying.  Sent Elder Burdge home today, and it as a rough goodbye. Love that guy, and soon he will be enjoying the USA! :)

We had a great week this week. We were able to find a family this week and they are really sweet! The mother is somewhat stubborn, but the kids really like to have us over.  :) The member we brought with us really connected with them, and he and one of the daughters started a Book of Mormon reading competition this week, so that is exciting for them. The investigator is on 1 Nehpi 3 last time we talked, and that was Saturday morning, and she just called to see how we were doing and to tell us about her reading. We are blessed! :)

We had a night where we got pizza for the apartment for Elder Burdge's last week as a missionary in Ghana.  We got drinks and pizza and some cookies and enjoyed our night. Other than that, we were fed every day and sometimes 2  times in a day. Holy awesome. I wish every area was good at feeding missionaries, it means a lot to us, but I am sure Mom likes to know the members are taking care of us.  :)

One of the young women who loves to have us over and cooks for us is Sister Comfort, and she got her mission call this week!  She is going to Congo to speak French!  She is really excited to go, and we were so excited for her to open it, we were actually able to be there when she opened it! :) Funny though, her older brother who is a returned missionary opened it on the way over to bring it to her... lame.  Oh well. Anyways, it was awesome to see!  :)

Lastly, I "baked" some cookies at our Bishop's house this week and it was a hit!  They weren't quite the same as back home, but I got to use a propane oven which was a little better than the coal oven.  Everyone loved them, and wanted to make them again, so we shall see how it all goes! :)  Mama Wawro's cookies strike again!  :)

I had some sweet studies this week. I have been praying a lot lately, and I was struggling to understand why this and why that and why can't I have my answer now, and the Lord answered my prayers in a way that I hadn't thought of with this scripture:

11 Do ye not remember the things which the Lord hath said?—If ye will not harden your hearts, and ask me in faith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence in keeping my commandments, surely these things shall be made known unto you.

I was a little impatient this week on my prayers, and after I read this scripture (in a divinely placed spot) I understod that not all my questions need to be answered right this minute, or even this week, but that "Surely these things shall be made know unto you". I felt a peace and  calm come to me as I just let go what I felt like needed to happen and accepted God's plan and His time frame for me. It is funny how every time I think I have gotten really good at something, I am humbled to build once again. The Lord is truly mindful of me, and I am grateful to continue to learn more of Him as a missionary and as His son.
