but enough with this trunkie gushy stuff... VICTOR GETS BAPTIZED THIS WEEK.
seriously i know that i keep talking about it...but i dont think you realize how big of a miracle this is.. (in my opinion all baptisms are miracles) but im just soo happy for him. ive really seen him change. have desires to become better andnow look.. he is going to make a covenant with our heavenly father.
but this week has been a little bit rougher other than victors baptism. we have been working a lot with them members which is good but sometimes its hard to depend on someone and have it fall through. but we are working hard... so that is all that matters. but
today i was studying matthew 5-7 and 3 nephi 12-14 the sermon on the mount. its super interesting... i always thought that it was the same like isaiah in 2nd nephi... the same word for word..but the doctrine is the same. soooo why is it different?? why didnt christ teach it the same... because the doctrine is the same but the people he was teaching were different. THE BOOK OF MORMON IS WRITTEN FOR US! its written for the problems we face today!!!!
in the bible in the sermon on the mount it explains the higher law... but really those people werent concerned about why we do those things... they just did it..they were used to the law of moses. but when christ came he fulfilled the lower law but the higher law is more than just doing the things... completeing the commandments its change... ITS THE ATONEMENT. and that is what is explains the book of mormon HOW!!! HOW WE CAN CHANGE!
I know that this church is true i know that seriously READ THE BOOK OF MORMON. if you are doubting your testimony... or life is toom uch or you just feel hopeless... if you dont know what to do... you are lost.... READ THE BOOK OF MORMON. the answers are there!!!
i love you guys and i am so greatful for this mission even though this is the hardest thing that ive done... i am thankful for the good weeks and the bad... the hard times and the deepest sorrows. I am thankful for my savior and this message that we share about him... its the truth
love you guys have a good week and keep the faith
