Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t been writing as much as usual. Its been an adventure for the past couple weeks and it just continues. Like said a little ago I started having some bad headaches. Well it turns out that stress is not an issue but the two impacted wisdom teeth chillin in my mouth. Its been a struggle but your guys’ prayers have definitely been a blessing and have helped to carry me on! Please keep them coming I will definitely need them. But enough about me.
Just a little over a week ago some super solid investigators got baptized. Tom and Gavin are super solid and they just keep on progressing! Yesterday I was privileged to ordain Tom to the Aaronic priesthood and then see him able to turn around and stand in the circle for his son the receive the priesthood as well! It was so powerful and the spirit was definitely there. I can’t wait to see the blessings and miracles that continue to help them along in their conversion.
This week we saw a lot of miracles coming in from the new Easter video that the Church put out the one that I shared last week #Hallelujah. Its a great video and if you haven’t checked it out yet I strongly encourage it. But we have had a good turn out of referrals that have not all turned out solid but have a lot of promise to them. We have a pretty good teaching pool and I am excited to see how these guys progress.
This week for the spiritual message it might be kinda obvious that wisdom has been on my mind. In 2nd Nephi 9: 28 says “O that cunning plan of the evil one! O the vainness, and the frailties, and the foolishness of men! When they are learned they think they are wise, and they hearken not unto the counsel of God, for they set it aside, supposing they know of themselves, wherefore, their wisdom is foolishness and it profiteth them not. And they shall perish.” When we take and think that due to our knowledge and learning we are able to walk our path without God we perish. But the next verse says, “But to be learned is good if they hearken unto the counsels of God.”
When we use our learning and knowledge to follow and push forward the kingdom then it is good. and then we get this promise in Helaman 5:12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall. Love you guys and hope you have a stellar week! ” But, behold, the righteous, the saints of the Holy One of Israel, they who have believed in the Holy One of Israel, they who have endured the crosses of the world, and despised the shame of it, they shall inherit the kingdom of God, which was prepared for them from the foundation of the world, and their joy shall be full forever. ” 2nd Nephi 9:18
Hey guys not a lot to say this week. Just getting settled in the new area and Having a party. this week I will just leave a scripture with yall you can ponder and if you want I will still be on for awhile and you can tell me what you think if you want. Enos 1:5 5 And there came a voice unto me, saying: Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou shalt be blessed. 6 And I, Enos, knew that God could not lie; wherefore, my guilt was swept away. 7 And I said: Lord, how is it done? 8 And he said unto me: Because of thy faith in Christ,whom thou hast never before heard nor seen. And manyyears pass away before he shall manifest himself in theflesh; wherefore, go to, thy faith hath made thee whole. Love yall hope to hear from you. If not have a stellar week!
