Elder Low's report:

This week I've been reading in Mormon and focused quite a bit on Mormon chapter 9. This chapter talks quite a bit about the nature of God, how he has always been a speaking and an acting God. While I was reading in this chapter I specifically came across this verse:
 20 And the reason why he ceaseth to do miracles among the children of men is because that they dwindle in unbelief, and depart from the right way, and know not the God in whom they should trust.
God does not cease to do miracles, here Moroni specifies that. But he also explains here that to receive and see these miracles we must walk what he calls the "right way." This means we must follow the commandments and the voice of the spirit; in acting as the Lord would act. If we do this having faith in Christ, we have the promise that we will see miracles.

A couple of weeks ago Elder Corry and I felt strongly impressed to go to the house of a less active. It did not result in any new investigators, but from that visit it became extremely impressed upon both of us the importance of less active work. The man we found had a very strong testimony of the gospel but because of problems we still have yet to understand, he finds himself unable to go. "But," he stated, "The time I spent in the church was a very happy time in my life." We saw the fire of his testimony and realized how that lay in all of our less active members and in those recently converted. Now Two weeks later we have found 7 new investigators from LARC work and one of them which we found yesterday happened on accident. We knocked on our recent convert’s door. He opened the door and there sat one of his nonmember friends as well. We jumped on the opportunity. We shared a scripture on how the Lord makes us strong when we are weak (Ether 12:27) and asked him to be baptized to receive this strength. He said yes. His recently converted friend then jumped in and said he had already taught him much about the church.

I know as we act as the Savior would act, and help all people that we come into contact with, the Lord will provide miracles’.
