This week was a good week. We have had a lot of teaching appointments, though most of them fell through. Yet it really doesn’t matter if appointments fall through or not. What matters is that we give people the best chance to accept the restored gospel which will bring them to Christ.
This week we had a meeting called ADTM which is when our Zone Leaders train us on a couple things that the mission president wants them too. We talked about Grace, what it is, how to access it and what it can do (it can do anything good in case you are wondering). Then we talked about getting the work done.
So overall it was a good week.
One thing I want to do on every weekly email is share a principle of the doctrine out of Preach my Gospel with every week that remains on my mission. This week it will be God is Our Loving Heavenly Father.
This doctrine is simple and fundamental. It teaches us who God is, and why he does what he does. Very Simply God is Our Heavenly Father, we are his children, we are part of His Eternal Family. Like how a parent loves their children simply because they are their children, our Heavenly Father Loves us because we are His Children.
That loves shapes the way we live, and how we interact with Him. He wants to bless our lives and give us gifts that will make us eternally happy. The ultimate gift he wishes for us is for us to eventually become like him. He gave us this life so that we can be able to learn and grow and become more like Him.
However, he knew that we would not be perfect and that we would make mistakes that would hold us back from the life he wants us to have. Yet he made a plan for us that in spite of our imperfections we could be able to achieve all that God want us to. And that is in and through Jesus Christ God’s only Begotten son, who made a perfect sacrifice that if we come unto him, through his gospel we might be saved. God’s Love is made manifest in the divine gift of his son.
For as Paul has said: “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
