Faithfully Serve with Obedience
we had zone conference and i can tell you all right now that Mission Presidents are men that are truly inspired of God! everything that we discussed this week was awesome and truly was meant to be spoken about. and the spirit that he brings as soon as he steps up to the pulpit is incredible. so parents with missionaries, know that your sons and daughters are in good hands!
this week was an interesting week! elder crowton has been sick for the past few days now so weve been in the apartment a lot and we'd leave when we have appointments. we had a great lesson with leashia and we think shes going to baptized soon. we also had a pretty bomb lesson with tim. he asked some interesting questions and was trying to get us into a deep doctrine discussion! it was really cool because no matter what he asked we always knew how to answer and then explain to him so that he could understand what we were teaching him.
remember proverbs 3: 5-6
- Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
- In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
i spent most of the week studying the restoration and the plan of salvation in the scriptures and looking up passages that explained what everything means and trying to receive revelation and a better understanding of how to expound on those topics. also i studied a lot of the church history and almost finished the Book of Mormon and i swear this time a lot of stuff stood out a lot more. my understanding and knowledge of this is quickly beginning to grow and i give full credit to the Lord because i now go to him with all my questions and concerns! if we trust the Lord he will help us! have faith in him! think about Moroni 7:37!
37 Behold I say unto you, Nay; for it is by faith that amiracles are wrought; and it is by faith that angels appear and minister unto men; wherefore, if these things have ceased wo be unto the children of men, for it is because of bunbelief, and all is vain.
as missionaries we need to go about and faithfully serve with obedience. i can promise you that if you go through out your day making it a point to faithfully serve the Lord by keeping all his commandments miracles will happen in your life! love you!
