Sorry I missed last week! I am in Eastvale! Just like from where I began the mission! It is Northwest of Riverside. I am in the top left corner of the mission. It has been a great week! We taught a few people about the word of wisdom (keep your body healthy-don't put anything harmful inside of it) and one of our investigators doesn't have the desire to quit smoking weed.... But he is still really interested in the gospel. Our faith should be greater than our wants and desires. It is frustrating that he won't quit. But we are still going to teach him!
Shout out to my sister for getting married on Saturday! I love you! 2-21-15, save the date!
Mosiah 4:11-12. Great scriptures. They relate to investigators but also to ALL God's children. Once we have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, we should always retain in rememberance the greatness of God and for all that he has given us and done for us. He sent his son to die for us and atone for our sins so that at the last day we can be spotless before him and receive eternal life! Why wouldn't you want that?? There is a promise in those scriptures "calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come"..... <---- verse 11. ----> verse 12 "if you do this ye shall ALWAYS rejoice, and be filled with a love of God, and ALWAYS retain a remission of your sins, and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you...." Wouldn't you want more knowledge about God and Jesus Christ?? And be filled with the love of God?? I sure do.
I am grateful for the gospel and the role it plays in my life. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the gospel that Christ set up over 2000 years ago and it has been restored to its fullness. It is the true church and I love it so much. We are here on this earth to prepare to meet God. I am so excited for that day. If Christ came tomorrow, would you be ready?
