week 34

It got pretty cold this week. It was 11 degrees this morning when we walked out the door. Luckily, when we bundle up in all of our gear, it really isn't that bad at all.

So we really looking forward to seeing Steve baptized this weekend, but it was postponed due to the weather. We will just have to wait until this next Saturday before we get to see him make that wonderful step towards Christ.

Yesterday our ward mission leader gave us some really important advice that I found very helpful in helping me become better at helping others come to Christ. He started by sharing Alma 4:19
"And this he did that he himself might go forth among his people, or among the people of Nephi, that he might preach the word of God unto them, to stir them up in remembrance of their duty, and that he might pull down, by the word of God, all the pride and craftiness and all the contentions which were among his people, seeing no way that he might reclaithem save it were in bearing down in pure testimony against them."

Our ward mission leader made sure we understood that the only way that someone will be given an actual opportunity to choose to follow Christ is by feeling the Spirit. The only way that others can feel the spirit is by bearing "pure testimony" like Alma says. The Holy Ghost testifies of truth, and so if we testify that something is true, then the Spirit WILL be there. Then it truly is up to that person to either accept and act upon what they feel or deny and reject what they now know to be true. 

Another thing that was pointed out was the fact that the Spirit rings strongest when someone testifies of Christ. He is the center of everything that is taught in this gospel, and He is the way that we return to live with our Father in Heaven. He lives, and He loves us.

I love all of you, and I love this work!

The Church is True!
