I want to share a little bit of how I recognized the Holy Ghost with this tuff decison to come home early or no:
This weekend was fast Sunday so I was fasting and oh boy did I have a purpose to fast and I sure did have an answer that I needed! I truly felt torn apart in two. The scriptures say "All that is good and inviteth a man to do good, cometh from the Spirit." I was truly confused. I have always told my investigators to pray and they would receive an answer and now I had to put my own faith to the test. Difficult moments are full of opposition. I know that and testify of that. As I fasted and searched, I found nothing. I felt confused and indecisive. During Sacrament meeting, (Here we fast Saturday night, and Sunday morning because we eat dinner for lunch.) as we sung hymns I felt so strong the Spirit and asked in my Heart what I should do. As I did so in my mind came a scripture and as I opened to look for that scripture I couldn't find it... But the page I opened to, where I thought the scripture was, I found a different one that hit home and is my answer.... D&C 78:18-19
I have asked and again felt the answer and the burning in my chest that this is the right decision. I know that it is what I must do. It is after we search and do our part that we will receive the portion that God has for us. I know this and bear my testimony that our Heavenly Father answers our prayers, but we must act. I share this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
I will be home soon and there we can all share experiences and I will show all my pictures and such. Love you all!! We'll see you soon!!
