Love From Coleman


Last night, I received this letter from an eleven year old boy from my home ward. The past few weeks have been a bit stressful for me and I haven’t felt that I have been adequate at all. I haven’t seen much success in my eyes and in a way I have been beating my self for not having the success that I yearn for. However, the Lord is amazing. I have been praying to know if my work has been making a difference. This letter from Coleman, I feel, was the Lord’s way of answering my prayers. Reading this letter, I felt that I have been doing that. That my hard work is for the benefit of others. For the first time of my mission, I realized that my mission effects more than just the people that I am teaching here. My mission is effecting so much more. I just hope that my example and hard work can help Coleman see that a mission is really something that God needs us to do. That by my example, Coleman can hopefully have the desire that I have had. I know that the Lord answers our prayers! I love that he also answers them in the most unusual and creative ways. The key is, we just have to be patient! This letter has sparked a new spark in me! I know that I need to pull my head up and charge the mountain!!! That I need to dig a little bit deeper so that I can continue to be the example for others. I am so grateful that Coleman took the time to write this to me and I know the Lord’s timing was a apart of me receiving it at the time I needed it.
