the truth of all things .. [06.01.09]

Moroni 10:3-5

"Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts."

"And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost."

"And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."

the truth of all things are made known by the Spirit. everyone we have worked with this week .. everywhere we have gone .. everything we have done to bring His children closer to His path is true. i know this because the Spirit has told me through His still and small voice .. i have felt it and i have seen it ! the Lords miracles are being poured out upon us !

this week was QUITE AMAZING !

* MEMORIAL DAY = LOTS OF PICNICS ! we had one with the APL 1st/YSA .. one with the APL 2nd and then for FHE we had a BONFIRE [ it DEF made me miss our Huntington Beach Bonfires ! ] the BEST part of all those activities was that our investigators were at EVERYTHING and the WARD/BRANCH did all the fellow shipping ! it was beautiful. [side note = i was sick that day .. it was a weird sick BUT e. pulley gave me a priesthood blessing that eve and i was better the next morning. i can truly testify that the power of the priesthood is REAL and i am grateful for it in my life.]

* i had an AMAZING interview with Pres. B .. he is SO inspiring and i am so grateful that he is my mission president. he helps and inspires me SO MUCH !

* OSHKOSH INSTITUTE WAS OFF THE HOOK ! we had DAN FRANZ and JEREMIAH JAMES there .. they came with our MISSY BLOOM too ! you know the gospel is true when you get about 15 - 20 YSA together on a night to talk about the scriptures and how they better our lives !

* wednesdays = strengthening recent convert and less actives day ! we spent most of our day teaching them and them teaching us .. its so great to see there faith increase ! we also went to YW/YM for the APL 2nd ward and had 2 investigators there ! SLYVIA [one of the twins] and LAZ [a yw's bf] they both had fun and loved being around so many youth who have the spirit abounding !

* MAY 28th = AMAZING ! we were able to have lunch with BRITTNIE .. our investigator who is crazy busy ! we taught her about having a living prophet and how much of a blessing it is in our lives TODAY !
THAT NIGHT WAS THE BEST ! we learned in ZC how to have lesson chapel tours and so we set one up for JEREMIAH JAMES ! we had 2 members with us [ gary and christie ] we planned out that day what we were going to talk about in each part of the church building ! we started with a song and the Spirit flooded the building ! [there were scouts there earlier that we DID NOT know about BUT the Lord blessed us and when we started the tour EVERYONE was gone !] we talked about the importance of the sacrament, the great apostasy, joseph smith and the first vision, the desirable fruit of baptism and the importance of the temple .. THE LESSON WENT AMAZING .. THE SPIRIT WAS SO STRONG and when we invited him to come unto Christ by being BAPTIZED .. HE ACCEPTED ! JEREMIAH JAMES IS GETTING BAPTIZED JUNE 20, 2009 ! the Lord loves him and is SO excited for his choice. after we committed him we asked him his experience finding out this was true and he said "i wanted to find a body of believers who believed what i did, i met the mormons but i was skeptical, i asked God and I FOUND THE TRUTH !" he came to church yesterday and LOVED it ! i have known Jeremiah from the start .. he is a UWGB student and his souls greatest questions have and continue to be answered !

* teaching Jeremiah THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST using Chutes and Ladders ! [ hey we did THE PLAN OF SALVATION using Candy Land ! it def works ! ]

* CHICAGO TEMPLE ON MAY 30, 2009 = the best blessing ! ALEX did his family history and came with 7 names ! HE WAS SO ECSTATIC ! HE IS AMAZING. i cant say it enough ! he loves this gospel and knows everything is TRUE b.c. of the Spirit ! it was such a blessing to be there with our YSA and also ALLAN who's it was his 1st time too ! s. johnson and i were able to help in the baptistry and that was SO COOL ! I LOVE THE TEMPLE !

* SUNDAY IS ALWAYS A BLESSING. i love the sabbath day and seeing our investigators / recent converts / members ALL there to worship and partake of the sacrament together ! ALEX ALSO PASSED THE SACRAMENT FOR THE 1st TIME ! i've been through the whole journey right next to alex and it is such a blessing and answer to all my prayers ! I LOVE THIS GOSPEL !

"The Spirit of God like a fire is burning! The latter-day glory begins to come forth; The visions and blessings of old are returning, And angels are coming to visit the earth."

the work i am doing here in wisconsin is true. i love being the Lords instrument. His work will continue to go forth b.c. THE TRUTH OF ALL THINGS will be made known to all those around us.
