Preparing for an Apostle Nov 2

Allo everyone!

Hope this update finds you all well, just a few quick insights and exciting news from this week.

First of all, as some of you may have heard, Elder Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve will be coming to speak in Chisinau a couple weeks (November 18th.) He is the apostle that dedicated Moldova for missionary work, and will be coming for an afternoon to speak to the members and missionaries here, a true miracle for all those that are still pioneering in this area, especially those that were here the last time Elder Ballard came to Moldova. We are all very excited to work harder than we have ever worked to make this experience something life changing for our members and friends here. 

In our reading of the Book of Mormon this week, there were a couple verses in particular that struck me, found in 4 Nephi 1:12-13 :
12. And they did not walk any more after the performances and ordinances of the law of Moses; but they did walk after the commandments which they had received from their Lord and their God, continuing in fasting and prayer, and in meeting together oft both to pray and to hear the word of the Lord.
13. And it came to pass that there was no contention among all the people, in all the land; but there were mighty miracles wrought among the disciples of Jesus.
I truly believe that these verses include a call to action and promised blessings for all those in this city and in this mission. They give me the faith and strength to make miracles happen here. We are heeding the words of Elder Ballard. We are united in prayer and fasting. We are reading the word of the Lord. And there will be mighty miracles wrought here among the disciples of Jesus. I am continaully humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve here. 

Until next week, look for miracles!
