alma 19-20 - faithful women

alma 19 - 20
so much happens in these two chapters. some of my favorite women are introduced.
the queen is ready to fight off anyone that says her husband is dead. 19:4-5, 11-12 (i love her!)
the queens maid, who has been secretly converted for years, grabs the missionary opportunity by the horns.19:16-17,

i find the mention of the servant interesting in relation to the queen. 19:28-31 her servant being a convert must have had some sort of influence to prepare the queen for this experience. so often we don't see the seeds we are planting, we don't see the fruit of seeds we plant, we don't see the many things that have been done to prepare those we see converted. i look to abish for example when i feel the loneliness of being the only member family in our town and the surrounding towns. i have to try and just keep planting, hoping to see some fruit in my lifetime.
