I hope you’re all surviving the heat of the summer! This week was amazing. We had a baptism yesterday and it was such a tender mercy. It was so sweet. Jose and his family have been so blessed for their decision to follow Jesus Christ!
This week I have been working on Faith! Faith is so critical and so needed not just in the mission field but in life! Faith in JESUS Christ gets you places. I have felt an increase in my faith as I have stopped comparing myself to others and as I have completely accepted God’s will for me and for those around me. ESPECIALLY the ones that I have been teaching, and even the sweet conversations I have on the street. We were walking around one evening and started talking to this couple on the street about Christ and she told me at the end how important it was for us (Sister Whitaker and I) to keep believing because the world will try do hard to steer you away from God. KEEP THE FAITH.
YOU KEEP TRYING. YOU KEEP WALKING. THERE IS HELP AND HAPPINESS AHEAD. SOME BLESSINGS COME SOON AND SOME BLESSINGS COME LATE BUT FOR THOSE WHO EMBRACE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, THEY COME.
don’t forget who you are you are all Sons and daughters of God! Have faith in Him and in His promises.
Have an amazing week!
Much love from California,
Sister Lydia Foster
