What's up guys this week was pretty boring. We literally just biked around all week talking to as many people as possible and nothing really came of it. Everyone here is "too busy" for the gospel it's pretty frustrating.
Saturday we literally rode our bikes around in the pouring rain the entire day talking to people in the street it was fun. The streets were flooding and we were soaked to the bone haha. Good times
But some things I've been thinking about is how blessed I am to have the priesthood. I've given a few blessings since I've been out here and I've participated in giving the priesthood to both of my converts and in blessing a baby. It's really an honor to have God trust you enough to let you use some of his power for the benefit of others. I was reading Jesus the Christ the other day and he talks about how in Mathew 7 when it says
21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity
Apparently (according to Elder Talmage) Jesus is talking about those who perform ordinances without the priesthood. So having the authority is sooooo important guys and we are so blessed to have the priesthood in our lives.
Sorry my week was pretty boring and I don't have anymore stories to tell you guys. But I hope y'all are having a good week! Love y'all
Just pretend these pics are of me and not my companion haha
Inviting others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel .
