La Vida es la Universidad por Adversidad

This week was hard. Really hard. Satan has been working incredibly hard on us and our investigators. I have seen it and felt it. The harder we push, the harder he works, but it's alright because he will NEVER win. He can "send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind" but he will NEVER win. (Helaman 5:12)

Hermana Jordan and I have our feet planted in the gospel sod, our roots are firm in Christ, our house is built upon a rock, and how firm is our foundation, even that the temptations of Satan will not shake us. We are representatives of Christ. We wear His name on our hearts and our plaques. "[He] will be on [our] right hand and on [our] left and [His] Spirit will be in our hearts, and [His] angels round about [us] to bear [us] up. (Doctrine and Covenants 84:88)

"I am part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The dye has been cast! I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tainted visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, positions, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk with patience, am uplifted by prayer, and labor with power. My face is set, my gait is fast, and my goal is Heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear! I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, or let up, until I have stayed up stored up, and paid up of the cause of Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till I know, and work till He stops me." -Unkown Author

I know the Savior is with us, and even though Satan is doing his best to slow us down, we are as the army of Helaman; "we are as the Lord's missionaries to bring the world His truth". 

Sending all my love, 
Hermana Childs
