Never will forget the moment she accepted her bautismal invitation and said firmly, "Yes. Because this is the church of Jesus Christ and I want to be here."
This family will be such a blessing to Gods kingdom on earth. I see future leaders generations of families, strong and faithful to God and Jesus Christ and what they know to be true.
Fav quotes from General Conference...
"You wont be of much help to others if your own faith is not firmly placed...the doubts will not diminish. now is the time to strengthen your faith and testimony, to help others ahead!"
"YOU ARE PLEASING GOD, IN SPITE OF YOUR SHORTCOMINGS."
"When we choose to live the words of the prophets, we are on the covenant path to eternal perfection."
"When we build our house upon Him..the rains of the latter days may come...but we will not fall, we will not fail."
"While every one of us will return to God, not everyone of us will remain with Him."
"THIS IS THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST. WHEN WE RECEIVE IT AND LIVE IT WE ARE MADE PREPARED."
"The power of the Sacrament is the power to see the face of God and thereafter Live."
"DECISIONS DETERMINE DESTINY." So we should be praying for and planning things of eternal consequences!
"His words (the Saviors) provide an unfailing guide..His path will take us home."
"Don't yield to Satans lie that you don't have time." (for the important stuff of God)
"We are not here in this life to waste time and die, we are here to achieve our potential and GROW."************
"The family is the center in the Plan of Salvation. Perhaps it is why it is also called the Plan of Happiness." :)))
In the mission something really special is how we study the scriptures and doctrines of Jesus Christ and truths of His Gospel every day. I have been able to read and interpret MANY scriptures and come to know more and better (literally) The Word of God.
Well ill share one scripture. (and i don't know how all of the sudden the letters are slanted but i dont know how to change it and don't have time. haha lolz. ok)
Lucas 17:32 (welp. the letters changed themselves..)
The scripture says in SPanish "Acordaos de la mujer de Lot." I think in English its "remember Lots wife."
If you all remember the burning and destruction of Sodomin and Gomora (spelling?) and how Christ told Lot and his family to leave and not look back. Well his wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.
I remember in Primary (when i was a niña) this story was my FAVORITE. but only because someone turned into salt. I never knew the meaning or really understood what happened. Its amazing to see this scripture again here in my mission and actually interpret it and relate it to my life.
Basically God doesn't want us to look back. He has given us all of the tools and opportunities to move forward in our lives and return to Him. The biggest of them all being His Son, Jesus Christ. Who gave His life as an example and a sacrifice for us to use in this life. This life, which is a time of PROBATION and PROGRESSION. God wants you to look forward. He sees the eternal perspective and knows your potential. "He sees me for what I can BECOME." (The One-its an EFY song...im really diggin those lately..)
LOVE YOU ALL. for real. move forward with faith. in everything. with faith, there is no fear. Have faith in God and in His promises and then LIVE them. (Im pretty sure Richard G Scott said something like that).
