It's funny how the simple and often seemingly inconsequential things really can make all of the difference in changing someone's life for the better.
In September 2013, while I was serving as president of the Mexico Cuernavaca Mission, my assistants and I traveled to a distant town, Ciudad Altamirano, to transact some mission business. In preparing for the trip, I felt impressed to stay at a local hotel, different than one I had stayed at previously.
We arrived late in the afternoon, about the hour everyone eats their main meal of the day. I asked the hotel clerk for a recommendation on where we might find someplace to eat. She suggested a restaurant downtown but then added, “There is a place just a few blocks away that is also good.”
“Great! That’s where we will go!” I replied. We were hungry and the restaurant was close, making the decision easy.
