Living by the Power of Faith



Living by the Power of Faith On July 29, 1977, Sister Cook and I had just finished visiting the Bolivia Santa Cruz Mission and were stalled in the Cochabamba, Bolivia, airport for some five hours I recall that we were very tired, having had few hours of sleep the night before We were both delighted to have a few hours of rest in the airport As I was drifting off to sleep, I had a very strong feeling that I should awaken and write down some ideas The desire to sleep was strong, but the promptings of the Spirit were powerful I did write in fact, I wrote for nearly three hours, solving some organizational problems I had struggled with for a number of years previously I felt a great outpouring of the Spirit on that day and excitedly wrote down each inspired thought The experience took most of the time of the delay. We were then off to La Paz, Bolivia We were graciously met by President and Sister Chase Allred at the airport and driven in their van to the mission office We left our luggage and briefcase in the locked van. Upon entering the office, the president was confronted with the difficult case of a woman whose husband was dying While President Allred and I assisted with her needs, Sisters Cook and Allred left in a car for the mission home. When the president and I returned to the van, I realized immediately that all of our goods were gone but assumed that Sister Cook had taken them with her to the mission home While we were driving toward the home, I discovered that the right front wind wing had been damaged and began to fear that our goods had been stolen. Arriving at the mission home, we found that our luggage had indeed been stolen The loss of a substantial amount of money and all our clothing created an immediate but only temporary problem More disheartening was the fact that my scriptures were in my briefcase along with the inspired ideas I had just received in Cochabamba The overwhelming sensation of discouragement, anger, and inability to do anything about the situation was overpowering.

    Read the scriptures and the Lectures on Faith, and you ll learn enough about faith to make reading this book unnecessary This book has a few good Elder Cook stories mixed in with copy and pasted scriptures.
