A Praying Bishop

It was a little over 3 months ago that I learned I really needed to get a roommate or make 800 dollars more a month.  I picked getting a roommate. I advertised on Craigs list and since I was asking for 2 things ( must love dogs and no smoking) and I was pretty desperate I said minimal drinking.  Something I never would of allowed, or even thought of at all.  I had 2 interested but once they learned I was LDS, I didn't hear from them again.

Then I told every one in Relief Society that I was looking and would allow this and I couldn't believe I was saying some drinking was OK.  Everyone got a good laugh.  However the bishops wife I'm sure came and told her husband what I had said and as I learned later in our next meeting he'd been praying I find a LDS girl to live with me. He knew I needed positive people around me, not more stress.

Before that last meeting I was driving on a longer trip and the thought came to my head out of the blue to just ask on Craigs List for LDS standards.  Sure, OK,  why not.  Idaho is 27%  LDS.   So I did and within a few days- boom, I got a call.  Yentle came over and wanted  to move it.  She is an RM, 26 and very busy.  After her leaving I got an email asking about it too, and later, even weeks later I got emails about the room.  All from LDS girls.   Yentle didn't move in for another month and others I'm sure could of moved in sooner, but first come first serve is the nice thing to do.  It's only been a few days, but things are going well.  We don't see each other a lot, but she likes the dogs and the dogs like her.  I don't have to worry about anything else!

It went down like this:  I had a need and let everyone know about it.  Word got to the right person, who prayed for the right thing.  His praying caused a thought to be placed in my mind and I excepted it.  I tested it out and it happened!  Pretty cool, how prayer can work.
