15 August 2016 - Moldy loaves

Hello, all!

"Idaho Man Finds Mammoth Tusk" - Real life headline I saw in Wal*Mart today.

Well, this week I'll be finding out about what's happening at the next transfer.  My current companion, Sister Kolo, will be flying home in a couple weeks, so there will definitely be changes to talk about.  Will they keep me here?  Send me somewhere else?  Switch me to a spanish area?  Who knows!!?  (see English lds hymnbook #270)

Remember in the Bible when the multitude followed Christ, and he taught them, then they were going to feed them?  Then, all the disciples had was 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread?  We studied this in church yesterday.  When they gave Christ the food they DID have, He was able to work miracles.  He was able to make it happen.
Sometimes, even though we love Christ, and follow him, we only have 2 fish and 5 loaves.  Some days we may only have a fish skeleton and one moldy loaf of bread.  First of all, how gross.  Second of all, sometimes, in all honesty that's ALL we are able to do.  When we're given difficult tasks, all he asks is that we give Him what we CAN.  He'll make it happen.  Whether it's feeding a multitude, being a wife/husband, being a mom/dad, going to school, being in a relationship, being a missionary, being broken, having scars, making mistakes, and having weaknesses - give what you have, and regardless of how much that may be and regardless of what your situation is, the Lord will work wonders with your willingness.  

I love you all,
Sister McIntosh

PS - this week we went on exchanges with some of the sisters in our zone - always SO fun!
