Plans Plans Plans

Dear Everyone,

So every morning we pray as a companionship and then plan for the day, so that the Spirit can help us and prompt our thought as to what we need to do on any given day. This week we had a miraculous experience that has re-affirmed my testimony of the power of planning by the spirit:

So Friday morning we did our planning and we had an open hour in between appointments so we looked at a street map of the area and chose a random street that was close to one of our appointments, and planned to spend the whole open hour knocking houses on that street and talking with people. The only problem was that our map didn’t show any other detail than just the street and it’s name, so we weren’t sure exactly what to expect. When we got there we discovered that the whole street contained only two houses. I, being disappointed, suggested to my companion Elder Ward that our time would be better spent in a more populated part of town where we could talk with more people and have a more productive hour. As we approached the first house Elder Ward reminded me that we had planned to be on that street, so we were going to at least try the few houses that were nearby. As if on que, the screen door of the house we were walking up to swung open seemingly on it’s own. We weren’t sure what to think but we continued up to the door and knocked on it. The door opened and a young man stepped outside, the same young man that we had met just briefly about a month prior while walking down another street across town. We ended up talking with him for almost an hour about the church before returning to our car. We were kind of freaking out.

I promise all of you (kind of building off last week) that if you not only set goals, but also set out a plan of how you will accomplish the goals you set, then I know that you can do anything; especially if you rely on the Lord to help you as you set those goals and plans and trust that he will help you along the way.

P.S. General Conference this weekend was amazing (if you don’t know what that is go to I feel like this was the first time I really got anything out of watching it. General Conference is like the Super Bowl for missionaries haha.

Until next week,
Elder Klingler
