The Worth of Souls Is Great . . .

I was reminded of a special experience I had a few weeks ago.

We had a sister in the mission who was homesick and wanted to go home. She came to the mission home to spend a few days and to talk more with the president. Her Branch President, District President, Relief Society President, a good friend, her mother, who is not a member of the church, and her niece came to visit and talk with her. They had came 12 hours by bus and jeepies to get to the mission home. They visited with her, had dinner and then spent the night. (They were going to just go back and get on the bus to travel the 12 hours to go back home.) I know that each of them were exhausted, but they knew that this sweet young sister was worth it! "Remember, the worth of souls is great in the sight of God." D & C 18:10

When this sweet sister walked into the mission office, she ran to her mother and just cried. It was a very tender scene. Her mother encouraged her to stay and complete her mission! (Which she is doing)

To see that this young sister had such support from her District, Branch and from her sweet mother was a testimony to me that our Heavenly Father does have a plan for each of us. If we put our trust in Him, He will help us to find the way to accomplish what he has planned for each of us!
