Wow! the weeks sure go by faster then they did before!!!
Now back to the day of my Baptism as an 8 year old boy not really sure the significance of this act of being dunked into water just knowing that at 8 years old this is what we do in the church so ya that and I love water haha. So ya that's a good thing to remember in my life.
I Listened to a very good talk this week it is actually one of my favorite talks that I remember from 2010 Priesthood Session Elder Patrick Kearon, I remember this talk not only because of his accent because he is grew up in the Arabian Peninsula but because of the power of the talk in titled "Come to Me with all purpose of heart and I will heal you" It is all about Coming unto Christ and being perfected in him. Now he says some pretty great things in this talk and well i would encourage you to read and listen to it. One thing he says is this"Tonight I would like to share a message of comfort and healing with any of you who feels alone or forsaken, has lost peace of mind or heart, or feels that you have thrown away your last chance. Complete healing and peace can be found at the feet of the Savior." the last part especially Complete healing can only be found at the feet of the savior. When we have a a problem we can fix it for example if we have a problem with our feet or with our health we can go to a doctor for help to heal us. when we have a problem with something we need to make right with god we get on our knees and seek Complete healing. he goes on later in the talk and says "When we choose another path from the one we know to be right, as taught by our parents and leaders and as confirmed to our own hearts by the Holy Ghost, it is like stepping onto the desert sand in flip-flops instead of shoes. We then seek to justify our lazy or rebellious behavior. We tell ourselves were not really doing anything that wrong, that it doesn't really matter, and that nothing all that bad will result from letting go just a little from the iron rod. Perhaps we console ourselves with the thought that everyone else is doing itor doing worseand we wont be negatively affected anyway. We somehow convince ourselves that we are the exception to the rule and therefore immune to the consequences of breaking it. We refuse, sometimes willfully, to be exactly obedient as it says in Preach My Gospeland we hold back a portion of our hearts from the Lord. And then we get stung." In the Book of Mormon there is a story about the Anti-Nephi Lehis who come unto Christ with all purpose of heart but they do more than that they They became a righteous people because they did lay down the weapons of their rebellion, that they did not fight against God any more. Their conversion was so complete and so profound that they never did fall away. this is a marvelous work we have and well when we lay down our weapons of rebellion we are completely healed we have become true followers of Christ.he goes on and says this Brethren(sisters), we find healing and relief only when we bring ourselves to the feet of the Great Physician, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Not one of you has thrown away your last chance. You can change, you can come back, you can claim mercy. Come unto the only One who can heal, and you will find peace. What a talk and well let us put off the natural man and put on the full armor of god and put down our weapons of rebellion and become the people the world needs to fight for the right with all our might.
Well that's the week in a rerun haha, not really, there is so much more than baptizing and listening to motivational talks given by the Brethren. It all about walking and well this week was Fiesta or party week!! so not a lot of Missionary work happening the past week as we walked Biked ran rode a mototaxi and walked more we well we did exactly what we were supposed to but it is sometimes hard to sleep when in your backyard there is a big party!!! lots of music lights and well thank goodness i was tired haha. So ya Hope ya are doing well and hope you are having a good day! Another baptism lined up for this week! Have a great Monday and a Great Week!!!
May God Bless and Speed the Right,
Great talk to look up and read!
