D&C 10:5

January 23, 2017


Great week! Lots of stuff happened. jaja. Satan has really been working hard on our investigators and has caused some road blocks but all is well. Freddy and Joshua are still getting baptized this weekend!

Freddy got a job this last week and it was a miracle and a blessing for him. Then he was told that he had to work Sundays! It was awesome because we said a prayer for him and then invited him to say a prayer and then he ask his boss for work off. His boss said Yes, all Sundays off with no questions asked! That's why I titled this email D&C 10:5 because we prayed and we conquered Satan. It was so awesome.

I gave a talk in church yesterday. Is it weird that I enjoy public speaking? Yes! I spoke about priorities and I based my talk around Matthew 6:33 and 3 Nephi 13:33 "but seek ye first the kingdom of God". I learned a lot while writing and even giving this talk! It is important that we have righteous desires so that when choices come up, we can choose the right and choose the choice that will actually get us closer to getting what we actually desire. If you desire an eternal marriage and pornography pops up on your phone you are then faced with a decision. You can either give in to what you might want in that moment or choose to get it off your screen and keep you actions in line with your desire of eternal life with your spouse. To me that is how you seek first the kingdom of God. It is having righteous desires and making decisions based off of those desires.

Love you all! Have a great week.
