This past week has seen some BAPTISMS! It was super awesome, and they are so good! As I've been thinking about them, and what an incredible journey they have in store for them, I can't help but think of an adventure that I had. We had some amazingly torrential rain, and there was part of the street that was swamped with water. The reason? There was a gutter that was clogged. Me, my companion, and a random guy from Bangladesh went to work cleaning it out. It was a little gross, but fun at the same time. By the time we were done, the street was drained and looked a lot better.
The point of the Church is to help each other clean our spiritual gutters. Sometimes we are in the midst of torrential rain. Sometimes we're drowning in the trials and challenges that we have to face. But as helping hands are extended, on behalf of and in the name of the Savior, we come to understand that the Lord really is aware of each of our needs, and He continues to lead and guide and direct us. We are meant to help each other. We're meant to lift each other, all in the direction of our Savior, Jesus Christ. (For further info, see Moroni 6 :) ).
I love you all, and hope that you have an incredible week!
Keep on keepin' on!
