Like a Fire is Burning
Hey family and friends!
I love you all so much!!! It has been freezing here the last couple days haha yesterday the high was 4 and it was -3 all day with some wild windchill...but it was great because we were busy doing the work of the Lord and His Spirit is with us, keeping us warm ;)
Debby was baptized this last Saturday and confirmed on Sunday in sacrament meeting. It was great!
As we have been finding and teaching, it has been so evident to me that today's society is headed in such the wrong direction. What was generally looked down upon and unacceptable 10 years ago is now generally accepted. Such things as language, dress/appearance, and just the interaction between people in generally is disgusting and poisonous to society. We are going downhill fast and only gaining speed.
I know, now more than ever, that the only thing that will save or help society is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a gospel of faith, a message of hope, and a standard of righteousness and cleanliness. Its so terribly difficult sometimes, because it is mine and missionaries jobs around the world to make this change happen. Most often, people don't want to change or think that they can't change, that its just who they are. This is totally false!! We change everyday with every decision that we make! So we need to evaluate our choices and our desires, then ask ourselves something like "what would Jesus do" to truly know whether our choices are good or bad. Part of this is being educated as to what Jesus would do...meaning we need to study the scriptures! His life and deeds are right there for us to learn from and strive to emulate.
The Church is true. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. His true Church and gospel have been restored through Joseph Smith, a prophet.
Love you all!!
