"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."
"Come unto Christ and be perfected in him and deny yourselves of all ungodliness."
Alright picking up from where I left off from last week-
KIMBERLY COOPER. Wow what an amazing person!
About 3 weeks ago, Sister Briscoe and I were walking back from a
very inspirational missionary meeting, and decided to take a little pit stop in
Taco Bell- a restaurant the I am not too fond of, but that day, nothing else
sounded as good. As we ate, we started talking to a lady who had just ordered,
about the weather and life. She had just moved to California and was looking
for service opportunities. We told her that our church has numerous service opportunities
for her to be a part of. He face lit up. She said that she had prayed that
morning that she would find a church to be a part of. She said that this was the start of the answer to her
prayers and left. She called us the next day and left a message saying
that she didn't realize what the name of the church was till she read
it on the card, and she said that her grandmother had joined the Church
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, just 5 years before she
passed away. When we met with her the next Tuesday for our service
activity, we ended up teaching her instead. We taught her the plan of
salvation. We taught her why this life is so important, why we are
important, and why it's important to follow God and Christ’s teachings. I can't
explain to you the spirit that is felt in these moments. Most of you know the feeling of when something is taught and then humbly received. Or to be on the opposite end and hearing the words
that can change or have changed your life. That is what this gospel did
for Kimberly. Life has given us all challenges that, at times can
feel too hard to bear, but with Christ's gospel, anything is possible.
Kimberly took the invitation to be baptized. She took the invitation to
learn more and to be more spiritually fed. She accepted the gift that
Christ gave to her, and she was baptized October 16, 2016. Her
boyfriend, Ralph is now too going to be baptized. They plan on getting
and eventually being sealed in the temple for eternity. Not only
was this an answer to Kimberly’s prayer but also an answer to mine and Sister
Briscoe’s prayers of finding that person who was ready to
This week had it’s own set of miracles that would make this
way too lengthy. Real quick note! Shout out to my father- Mark
Plumb for turning 32 yet again this year! I love him so much,
couldn't thank him enough for all the fatherly advice and
I love you all too!
Be good this week. Watch out for clowns. Pray for our country.
some pumpkin pie for me.
Los Angeles Temple trip. Last one for her mission but was with 2 of her past companions as well, which was awesome.
P-day fun with pumpkins!
The mark of a missionary! Los Angeles LDS Temple in the background.
Hey y’all. Wow. What a week. Mostly because it’s been a week and
a half and I have a lot to catch up on but mostly the highlight.... well ok two
highlights! Kimberly, from Taco Bell got baptized on Sunday! And we went to the
temple in Los Angeles today at 5am!What
a ride! Lol, quite literally though. If I have more time I will give the story
of Kimberly but if not I will write more next week. So sorry everyone! Here are
some pictures... maybe
ok actually I can’t. This is really just an email telling
everyone that I am alive and well.
I was wondering if you all were able to watch general
Well no worries because it's on lds.org go check it out. It's only
about twice a year that we get to hear a message from the
God and the apostles and other leaders of our church And how
much it is needed with all the chaos in the world. We are blessed to receive
insight from prophets and apostles who have been called of God to guide us in
this ever moving world. I received a lot of personal revelation from listening
this weekend. So that is going to be helpful in the future.
Well let me get into the week since it’s been 4 days since I
emailed y'all last. A lot can happen in that amount of time. I
Azusa on Thursday and met some... Interesting people. That was
refreshing actually. People in Glendora are just not as
interesting you could say. And that is not a bad thing of course! Nah. Ok. I'll
that only 2 homeless people yelled at me this week but hey! One
them was in Glendora! So points to Glendora. ANYWAYS. Conference
taught me patience since we had to take the bus between sessions and the people
on the bus were difficult to love. I really could not find it in my heart to
love one of them on the bus for a while. And then I listened during general
conference to a talk about blessing those that curse you- that
was a duh moment for me. A good reminder. I know that God loves
all his children, those who curse me, and those that curse Him. His love is
still there. Isn't that beautiful? That is perfect love everyone. It's
something that I need to learn. It'll take some time, but I know that there is
such a relief from repenting and changing our ways and will to God’s. It is us
taking the humble steps to Him that makes His love so real.
This email was a bit random and not what I originally planned to
about. But it seems right. So I hope you all have a good week!
try to send some pictures here soon because man oh man t’was an
