Helping others see their Potential


I am so happy for your amazing opportunities mom and papi. :D 

This week we continued to give a lot of blessings. I am being obedient and working hard, mom. 

Soo this week in the work, it has been great! I have been humbled a lot, I am really tired of my prideful attitude just always trying to win the battle in me. If you are a human, you will know what I mean when I say the battle in me. There is always a constant battle between the natural man and the man that God wants us to be. I am always trying to find how God would want me to act, and, quite frankly I fall . . . . .  ALOT!!! Well, good thing we have repentance. This week was humbling because we had amazing opportunities to help a lot of people to know the potential they have as children of God. Also, I have been reminding myself almost constantly to remember how much they are giving and that their offerings were sacred to the Lord, this helped a lot to bring humility! 

This week, we got to have a cool tender mercy, we got to help this hermana. She said that she was just tired of all the chismes that were in the church, she was just going to start going to another ward, and maybe just not go. We were able to feel the spirit really really strong. My comp and I started to testify of how we can often and almost always feel that we just aren't good enough in life sometimes. The majority of the time, we feel alone; this is when we are in grave need to talk to the Lord, call upon Him like it says in Alma 34:17-27. When we do this, it is really when the gospel gets real to us, it is when we learn of our real potential, we learn that all of this is for a specific reason, that we need to grow and learn so that we can become Gods in the future. We testified of these things, the hna started to cry and she said that she was going to try as hard as she could to get through the tests, to keep going to church. I felt the love of Heavenly Father there as I testified!! I know that He loves us more than we can imagine. He is there listening and answering us; if there is no answers, it is not Him that is broken, it is us that are not listening good enough. I want you all to remember, the Lord has made an amazing list of things; He has created the most gracious of things, and even the heavens He created, and yet He says that his most precious creations, are His children. If we could really come to understand the love He has for us, we would not feel worthy to be in His presence because we have rejected him soo much; a being so innocent of being, rejected, soo incredibly loving that He will forgive us at just the slightest cry for relief! He is ALWAYS there for you! He will never let you down!! He is the one that we need more than anything else! Search Him, do not forget Him because He will never forget you. I testify this to you with all the love I can. Only with Him, you will be happy, truly happy! 

Have an amazing week, find someone to help, love them as the Lord would love them! And I want to hear the stories of how you helped others. 

I love you all and do the Lords work! 

Love Elder Hancock!!!
