Last Week of Miracles

Well, seeing as the this last week has been the last full week of my mission, I was put my all out there and helped build up my companions for success...but boy was the opposition great! We've set some super high goals for our transfer, goals that seem maybe unrealistic to others in our mission. However, we set our goals with prayer and followed the spirit and we know that they are what the Lord thinks we're capable of. Satan, however, has definitely been doing his thing to stand in our way and keep up from achieving all we're capable of and from fulfilling our Father's will. Luckily, our faith is strong and we trust in the words found in Ether 12:6 that, "ye recieve no witness until after the trial of your faith." We are proving through our diligent efforts and continued faith that we trust in what the Lord has asked us to do and we are confident that we will be successful. We've already seen little miracles along the way that we know the Lord is giving us to encourage us along. Miracles like finding three available joint-teaches in one night (our opposition was that all the appointments fell through!), being prompted in companion study to share a particular scripture and mormon message with an investigator that happened to answer every single question she's had for the past few years about her circumstances in life, feeling the spirit working through us and knowing we are doing the Lord's will, investigators showing up unexpectedly to ward activities and events, hearing an investigator family tell us that the lesson we shared on eternal families was the best and most spiritual lesson they'd heard yet, receiving answers to prayers and getting to be answers to prayers. I know that all of these little things are preparing us for something greater and more for it is truly, "through small and simple things [that] great things are brought to pass," (Alma 37:6-7). That has been the story of my mission. 
I love you all and as sad as I am to leave my mission and all the wonderful people and places here, I am excited to come home and see all of you and share the experiences and testimonies I've gained and build-up even more with you. See you soon!!!

Love, Zuster Becky Hinchcliff
