So this morning I had a really cool experience. I had just sat down to study and started to read the book of Mormon, I had a stupor of thought. I then thought of one of our members who have been really struggling with health issues. He is bed ridden and recently fell, which put him in the hospital where they performed surgery to put bolts in his hip. With many tubes and IV’s over a week, he developed pneumonia. He is now in a rest home recovering.
As I sat in my study time I could not stop thinking of him and I heard a voice in my head saying “Go see him” I thought “No, this is study time.” Then I heard “Now, go see him, Now!” After hearing that I told my companion, Elder Haws that we need to go see him now. With a confused face he said “Ok” and we went to the care center. We arrived at the center and got to his room where he was grateful that we came and requested a blessing. I offered him the blessing where the spirit was felt.
After the blessing he explained that he was requesting the Elders, but no one understood because he only speaks Lao. I then understood that the voice was the Spirit directing us to truly do the Lords work. He needed the blessing then and we were able to give it because we followed the promptings of the Spirit.
