I am still alive. :)
We had zone conference this week and President blew our minds!! This week has been SUPER LONG but it also went by fast. Thanks to President, we have had a lot of animo (energy/animation) this week! We have been knocking doors and asking for referrals and not caring if we were awkward by passing their house and coming back to talk to them. hehe.
Ah yes, we read and President expounded Jacob 5 for us while tying it to the scattering and gathering of the House of Israel AND also to his topic of "this is not our battle". So we are to fight God's battle. Because this is his battle and since it's his battle, we don't have to worry about losing, because it's not our battle. :) God loves impossible odds. All throughout the Book of Mormon we read about a band of small numbers fighting, and conquering against the enemy.
In 1 Nephi 3-4 we read:
"Laman and Lemuel again began to murmur, saying: How is it posible that the Lord will deliver Laban into our hands? Behold, he is a mighty man, and he can command fifty, yea, even he can slay fifty; then why not us?...And it came to pass that I spake unto my brethren, saying: Let us go up again unto Jerusalem, and let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord; for behold he is mightier than all the earth, then why not mightier than Laban and his fifty, yea, or even his tens of thousands?"
So, how impossible are the odds?
