This week has been a good week! Last week was transfer meeting and elder frandsen got transferred to an area up near College Station, which is right next to Texas A & M.
Perfecting the steak sandwich… yes.
Farewell pic to elder frandsen!
Its been a busy week, we have been working with a family who is part member family. We are hoping to have the part of the family who is not baptized, be baptized in august sometime.
The other woman we have been working with has a date for August 3rd to be baptized, she has recieved all the discussions and commandments and is prepared most definitely.
I know this is the Lords work, Through the power of the Holy Ghost i have come to learn of the great reality of this work. The reality and necessity of this work being done at this time.
Joseph smith was called as a prophet of God to restore the original gospel that Jesus Christ established when he was on the earth. That being Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. We learn of these things through the book of mormon which testifies of Christ and his divinity.
In the book of mormon, the Eternal Father, God, spoke of the words which christ spake to His prophet Nephi.
The Father speaks to Nephi, then Christ to Nephi.
“and the Father said: Repent ye, repent ye, and be baptized in the name of my beloved son.
“And also, the voice of the Son came unto me, saying: He that is baptized in my name, to him will the Father give the Holy Ghost, like unto me; wherefore, follow me, and do the things which ye have seen me do.
“..behold, my beloved bretheren, thus came the voice of the Son unto me, saying: After ye have repenting of your sins, and witnessed unto the Father that ye are willing to keep my commandments, by the baptism of water, and have received the Holy Ghost, and can speak with a new tongue, yea, even with the tongue of angels, and after this should deny me, it would have been better for you that ye had not known me.
“And i heard a voice from the Father, saying: Yea, the words of my Beloved are true and faithful. He that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
“…behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.
2 Ne. 31
What a blessing to know these things…. so here is the invitation in moroni 10,
Moroni invites us
“Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can nowise deny the power of God.
“And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot.
I love the Christ, my Redeemer, my Rock, My Lord.
