Hello Family and Friends!
Hope you all had a fun and good New Years celebration and that you are all doing well!
This week had its ups and downs, most of the beginning of the week I was pretty sick and down but when I woke up January 1st, 2014 I finally was feeling good enough to get back out there! :) So the last part of the week was good.
We did a lot of service for people by shoveling a lot of snow on Friday morning. Then it snowed all day with out stopping so that afternoon we shoveled more snow, then it snowed all night so Saturday morning again we were out shoveling, annnnnnd..... it continued to snow! So we shoveled some more Saturday afternoon but then the snow stopped and the storm cleared out but left it in the negatives again.
Amongst all the service we got a lot of teaching in this week and a great lesson with one of our investigators C---- L---- who is looking at a date for baptism in the beginning of February. C----- is awesome and I love to see his progress as he continues to learn and continue on the path to the gate of baptism.
We had some good lessons with new Less Actives we hope to be working with and we continue to search for more people who are prepared for the unique message of the Restoration.
I bear you my testimony of that very message... I know Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ, they answered his question and told him to prepare himself for the Restoration of Christ's church. I know the priesthood, the authority to act in God's name, was restored and by that authority and under the direction of God himself the church of Jesus Christ was restored! I know the Book of Mormon is evidence of this very restoration. I invite all who may be lacking is testimony or who are searching for truth to put the promise of James 1:5 to the test, the scripture states, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men liberally and abraideth not, and it shall be given him." If you are lacking wisdom or in other words if you are searching for the truth then read the Book of Mormon and pray and ask God if it is true, if it really is the words of God. James 1:6 "But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering..." You must ask in faith, open your heart, put it to the test and I testify to you that if you do then you can receive an answer by the power of the Holy Ghost. I testify to you the Book of Mormon is the word of God, it is another witness of Jesus Christ and because it is true, Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet and restored the Church of Jesus Christ and that the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is God's kingdom here on earth!
I leave you my solemn witness of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
