So update on Doug, He's doing really well. We had three really good Lessons with him and he's learning more and more about the church. He's also growing a testimony! This week he told us that he knows that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that The Book of Mormon is Truu. He does believe this church is true and that it's his new home. Doug is Awesome he has such a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ and all he wants to do is be his best. It's been really cool to see him go from knowing nothing about the church to having a testimony of the church. It's been really good working with him and we're excited for this next week!
Sunday night we had a really good lesson with our part member family. We talked with them about Christlike attributes and how it's important to work on them in our own life, we also read out of The Book of Mormon and we asked the Member if he believes that it is true and he said yes but he doesn't believe in religion, we expressed with him that he needs to build off of the testimony that he has of The Book of Mormon being true. When we know the Book of Mormon is true, We know that Joseph smith is a true prophet. When we know that, We know that this is Christ's church here on earth again. They are a awesome little family and I know that if they have faith and act on the Promptings they receive then they can gain a faith of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!!!
Something I wanted to share this week was a talk by Elder Randall K. Bennett, Your Next Step...We fail only if we fail to take another faithful step forward. We will not, we cannot, fail if we are faithfully yoked to the Savior--He who has never failed and will never fail us! I promise that each faith-filled step will be met with help from heaven. Guidance will come as we pray to our Heavenly Father, rely on our Savior and follow Him, and listen to the Holy Spirit. Strength will come because of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Healing and forgiveness will come because of God’s grace. Wisdom and patience will come by trusting in the Lord’s timing for us. We must trust in the Lord and he will help us in all that we do!! He will Guide our Paths!
Well another week come and gone, I'm still doing really well. I'm really happy about where our area is, we have some things to fix but we're working on it. The scripture I wanted to share this week is one that my sister Kami shared with me this week and helped me a lot. It's Proverbs 3:5-6 5:Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6: In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. It's as simple as that! We must love the lord with all thy heart and we have been given the promise that he will direct our paths! Anyways I love you all and hope you guys have a great week!!!
