Instruments in God's Hands

I just want to tell you all about the miracle that we were able to be a part of on Friday. We had no appointments and no idea where to go so my companion and I sat down on a curb right by a river to think for a second. We talked a bit and then we decided that we couldn't sit there any longer and we got up and started knocking doors. There was no one home at the first door that we knocked but at the second door we were able to talk to a young man named Pool (not kidding). He came out with his eyes swollen and red and at first we thought he was smoking or doing drugs. After talking to him for a second though we realized that he had been crying. We were able to talk to him about the church and the hope that the gospel brings and how our Heavenly Father really cares about our happiness and the small things. He was struggling with things in the university and just needed some help. We were able to be part of that help. We ended with a prayer and as we listened he thanked God for sending two miracles to his door and for answering his prayers so fast because he had been praying just moments before. 

It was so amazing to really feel like we were being instruments in God's hands. He needed us and in that moment when He needed us we were there. I have so little time left in the mission but in these last few weeks I've seen and felt and heard so many amazing things. There's no way I could ever stop working early.

I love you all!!!! Just so you know we had an awesome fourth of July!!!! We had watermelon and pulled beef sandwiches and hot dogs and potato salad. It was great! We just played sports all pday and we were all able to relax and have fun.

I love you!!!!

Love, Hermana White
