So this past Saturday evening pretty much everything that Hermana Duran and I had planned fell through (that happens from time to time). We’d tried every back up plan to no avail and weren’t too sure what else to do. I remembered the name of a lady that we had been told might be interested, so we put her address into the GPS and headed that way. Even with the GPS I wasn’t super confident that we’d be able to find the house in the dark, but we gave it a shot.
Clearly marked house numbers in that particular neighborhood aren’t really a thing so we counted and then walked up to the house that we thought might be the one we were looking for. A man named Diego answered. He had no idea who the lady we were looking for was or where she might live, but he was friendly and chatted with us for a bit. We asked if we could sing him a song and he invited us in to introduce us to his wife and have us sing to the both of them. We sang "I am a Child of God" and then talked about what they were feeling. They liked the peace that was there in their home.
We learned that Diego was big on books and had accumulated a pretty impressive library over his lifetime. We asked if he’d ever read the account of when Christ came to the Americas. That spiked his interest. We gave a brief explanation to what the Book of Mormon is and how it could help them to continue to have peace in their home. He was excited to add a copy of it to his collection and we set up a time to come back and read it together.
God has a plan. He works in the details of our lives and guides our everyday. He speaks to us through the scriptures saying, "this is my work and my glory, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." He’s actively working for our benefit and welfare. When things may not go our way and we may feel unsure of what to make of what seems like a broken situation, we can trust that there are still great things in store. We just have to do the things that are within our power to do and then leave the rest of Him.
