The Blessing- Week 89

As always, it was truly a blessed week filled with miracle after miracle and tender mercy after tender mercy.  
We were on campus walking around and talking with people and we met a man named Alex who is really intelligent. We walked and talked with him for about 5 minutes and learned that he had not only heard about the Church but actually has a Book of Mormon and is currently reading it simply out of his own curiosity, he had never been offered one or given one by a missionary or a member. We were shocked to say the least. He said he is busy and not interested yet in meeting with missionaries but agreed to continue reading (he expressed that he hasn't been able to read it as much as he would like) and accepted an invitation to take a Prince of Peace pass-along card to watch the video. We parted ways but someone heard us talking about the Book of Mormon and about the initiative and he approached us, introducing himself as Kenny, and began asking questions to learn more. We were able to sit down with him and have a great lesson about the Restoration of Christ's Church. 

I loved and cherished the time that I had to partake the Sacrament yesterday and was so grateful for the opportunity to sit and reflect and admire and adore the Savior. I love Him and would be struggling without Him but I'm not struggling at all, it's magnificent and marvelous). The ward is incredible and I am so excited to be here and to be able to work with all of them. I recognize and know so many of them and was able to make so many connections, it was fun:).

Gray invited me to his Melchizedek Priesthood ordination yesterday and that was such a special and sacred experience for me to witness and be apart of. I love him dearly and am so grateful to have been able to witness and be apart of his miraculous conversion. He is one of my dear friends! It was wonderful to see him and everyone else in the Village ward yesterday:)

Keep the faith,
Elder Ricks
