The Blessing- Week 42

The Spirit of God

1. The Spirit of God like a fire is burning!
 The latter-day glory begins to come forth;
 The visions and blessings of old are returning,
 And angels are coming to visit the earth.
We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven,
 Hosanna, hosanna to God and the Lamb! 
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
 Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!

I love this hymn! In fact it is, and always has been, one of my favorites and most dear to my heart. I like to look at it as the first verse is God's role/promise and the chorus is our role/promise. 
God has promised that He will hasten His work and I am privileged and honored to be a witness to such a promise coming forth.

This week, we had so many appointments and things planned! It was incredible! Then, on Tuesday, we had to take our car into the shop after experiencing some problems with the brakes. That left us on bikes for the rest of the week and unfortunately and understandably Elder Santana has arthritis in his knees and so biking long distances or at really fast paces just doesn't work out very well.  Nevertheless, he persevered and endured and we saw miracle after miracle after miracle this week. We had a total of 7 scheduled appointments this week that we ended up having to cancel and reschedule and in their place, God allowed us to meet Harry, Marcus, Kayla, and Illandra and her dad Elisio who we were able to find and teach this week as we were out walking and biking from place to place. Each one has a unique and powerful story to how God prepared them to receive our message and how we were led to each other. 
On top of that, we miraculously were able to go to Stillwater for the Special Olympics with my dearest friends and they did incredible!!

The blessings were flowing  out the wazoo even more than usual this week. God is great!

Keep the faith,
Elder Ricks
