Words from Elder Brandon Day in Oklahoma

"Its been another slow week here in the city, but things are looking up! People always call this place the Bible Belt, but I think Oklahoma City is the belt buckle! There are so many huge churches here, its ridiculous! You can literally turn the corner and find a church. So that makes it a struggle because everyone we meet and try to talk to say they are fine and already have a church. But we're doing our best! Yesterday we were fasting as a zone, so about 26 of us missionaries all fasted to help us find new investigators to teach. And it worked! We had a member come to us after church and tell us that they had a friend they accepted to hear the lessons in their home, so miracles are happening! Its so great to see how the Lord blesses us as we put forth our faith in Him. There are so many times where I'm not motivated to work, where I don't want to talk to more people and nothing goes right. But then I stop and think about it and think about how great this experience it and how little time we have to serve, then my motives change and I get excited! And I really notice the change it brings and the success we see from it. This week we have lots of stuff going on and lots of people to see finally, and its mainly because of the few changes we've made on our part. It takes an act of faith to open our eyes to the light of Christ. And I know that's true for everyone. Just keep that in mind as you all go throughout this week, and how you can strengthen your own faith. Thank you all for the love and support!"
