"And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things for myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety? 46. Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God... 48. I say unto you, that whatsoever I shall say unto you, concerning that which is to come, is true; and I say unto you, that I know that Jesus Christ shall come, yea, the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace, and mercy, and truth. And behold, it is he that cometh to take away the sins of the world, yea, the sins of every man who steadfastly believeth on his name. 49. And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren."

People Are Crazy

Good afternoon people,

This week was good! A little crazy, with some crazy people, but that
is what makes it fun! So we had a missionary broad cast this week and
it was sooo good! Missionaries from around the world were all watching
a broadcast put on by the leaders of our church. I learned so much and
I would send you all my notes, but I don't think many of you would
enjoy that. So over all what I really got the most from the broadcast
is that this church and the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about
change, and I knew, but learned more about how that change can not
occur in someone if they do not accept the spirit into their hearts to
change them. I can do all that I can as a missionary to bring the
spirit into their homes and lives but it won't have any effect if they
do not except it into their hearts.

So we had an investigator (who shall not be named) who had a life
changing experience this past week. She had a major heart attack that
sent her to the hospital. We went to the hospital to go see her and
she said she was going to leave the next day, but that she wanted to
tell us It was kind of funny. She told us about all these weird
hallucinations about rings. She said the rings had words on them like
honor and respect and she told us that she now realizes that those
words were God describing her. This is just one example of the many
stories our investigators like to tell us. You got to love people here
though, they always make us smile, and surprise us.
It would be easy to give up on an investigator like this. I wouldn't
have to stress out about the crazy decisions that they are making in
their lives, however this investigator has the strongest desire to
change that I have ever seen in anyone. And it's going to take time
and hard work, but as long as I am trying my best, and the
investigator is trying their best, than Jesus Christ will make up the

Love you all hope you're doing well!
