No "Small Things" in the Lord's Work

This week has been good.  A little slow, but it happens. 

My new comp is Hermana Cardon from Provo, UT! She's super sweet. She actually went home for a little bit because her dad passed away and she came back out when I arrived. We did all the orientation together so we already knew each other a little bit before this transfer. We're working well together and focusing on helping this ward become more missionary minded. We're both new STLs so we'll be learning together. It'll be good, we're in the same boat right now: a little scared but excited!  It'll all be good.

I don't have a lot of time to write now and not much to write about but there is one super good experience I want to share:

Last night, we were driving around visiting some less actives. We didn't have too much success.  We just met a couple of people on the way to places but none of the people we were trying to meet. We got to this one apartment that Hermana Perez and I had tried a few months ago but no one had answered the door. Hermana Cardon and I decided to try it again. When we knocked on the door, this other woman answered and, to be honest, my first thought was, "Oh great, another person that's moved away and we won't be able to find."  We started talking to this lady, though, and all three of her little kids came to the door.  We met them and were talking to them about Halloween and what not. The lady then started asking us about who we were and which church we represented.  She starting telling us about how she grew up going to church but stopped.  She's been really missing it and wanting to be able to bring her kids somewhere to learn more about God. We talked about families and how important it is to base them on the teachings of Christ. We were able to give her information on the church meeting schedule and she seemed really excited to come this week. She told us how happy she was that we had come to her apartment that night. This week in my studies I was reading this verse in Ether 3:5

Behold, O Lord, thou canst do this. We know that thou art able to show forth great power, which looks small unto the understanding of men.

It really reminded me that sometimes things that seem so small to us are actually very significant and truly are done by the hand of the Lord. I was grateful for the reminder that there are no small things in the Lord's work and definitely no coincidences.
