"Baptism is the Gateway...Those chickens are ready."
"They got excited after telling them the analogy of the MOTHER HEN.
They wanted to be baptized after that!"
What a week! Last Saturday was the baptism of an amazing lady! Her
husband was extremely happy that he was finally able to baptize his
wife and to make the temple their next goal! I can truely testify and
add my witness to the many thousands of earlier and present and future
missionaries, that there is truely no greater joy than seeing a child
of our Heavenly Father, our fellow Brother or Sister, enter into the
waters of baptism and begin their new journey towards exaltation!
Missionary work is the best!
This past week I have been able to do quite a bit of extra studying,
for multiple reasons, and IT HAS BEEN FANTASTIC! The scriptures are
absolutely true! No doubt about it. The more you read the more the
grand scheme of things fit together and the Book of Mormon is truly
the key! Reading the Book of Mormon alongside the Old and New
Testaments and the teachings of the modern prophets (I'm currently
studying the Teachings of President George Albert Smith), has been a
tremendous blessing to me. I have learned so much and have gained a
deeper understanding and appreciation for our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ. I wish I could sit down and tell yall everything I have
learned BUT! that would take all day and I'm a busy man. Sorry. :P
Psalms and Proverbs are EXCELLENT to study. I highly recommend to
everyone that they take the time to study a few chapters in each
(after their Book of Mormon studies of course) every day. One of my
new favorite scriptures is found in Psalms 145:9:
"The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works."
I have seen the Lord's tender mercies in my life especially in my life
as a missionary. He loves each and every one of us and blesses us
EVERY DAY! Take a few minutes every evening to mentally go through
your day and you will see them. I promise you that. This work is true.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only church
that has the Lord's Priesthood authority. The Book of Mormon is the
Word of God and is another Testament of Jesus Christ. You WILL gain a
deeper love for Him and for your fellow man as you honestly study that
great book EVERY. DAY. Don't miss out on those blessings. Today is the
beginning of eternal happiness or eternal disappointment for you.
Choose the right TODAY. I love yall and hope everyone has a fantastic
