Subject: A New Year!
I am excited for the new year! Mormon 9:21, "Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ, doubting nothing, whatsoever he shall ask the Father in the name of Christ it shall be granted him; and this promise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth." This scripture is the basis to all that I do right now. I have faith that in the next months we can see up to 100 baptisms a month as a mission and there is a family for us to find! I do not doubt that it is possible. And that we will find those we promised to find before this life. I am excited to see how this year will play out!
I am going to see a doctor about my hip and my watch battery died. Funny thing is that it died at 6:30 this morning...I thought it was funny that it would die the moment I need to get up. I am excited to get the new shoes and contacts, those will be a huge blessing. I am not even kidding.
I love you all and I want to end my letter today with the words that mean more to my soul than anything...I know my Savior lives, that every single time that I say that I know the light of Christ is brigtened just a little. I know that every man knows Jesus is the Christ even if they say that they do not believe in him to be the Savior of mankind, God will manifest the truth of it unto them. I am sure that the words of the scriptures have helped me and they can help all people. I rejoice in Christ and all He did! I am grateful to live at this time to serve Him. I love this work and I love the many people I serve at this time. I know that this call is to preach to every creature (Matt 28:19-20). I say this int he name of my redeemer, my savior, my older brother, Jesus Christ. Amen.
