He is our Foundation
Dear Family and Friends,
This week my Companions and I have seen the work of both adversary and the Lord this week. The adversary is going to try to destroy our faith and to pull us down to his level. At times when he tries to do this we must ask ourselves what is our Foundation. In Helaman 5:12 we learn where our foundation should be..."And now, my sons (and daughters) remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that w when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." Our foundation is Christ. He is the light of the world and He is the living water. This week we have seen Satan try very had to stop the work from happening in our area, but he cannot stop the Lord's work. He will hasten His work in His time. We were told in General Conference this past October and have been told before that time is NOW!!! The Lord is hastening his work right now. It will only hasten as members and missionaries work together to bring the children of God to Him once again. We have seen so much happen in our area this week. We have met so many wonderful people. We are working on getting to know the members in the Ward, which has been super fun, because we are all new to the Ward and we get to introduce ourselves.
This week we went on Splits with the a Sister in the ward who is leaving on mission this week. She is the only member in her family. I was able to go with her. She is amazing the Lord is preparing people everywhere. She will be serving in the Salt Lake City East Mission. It was amazing to hear her share her testimony of the Gospel.
I have been able to see the Hand of God this week. He is mindful of us He loves us and He will help us accomplish His work. We are only the instruments in His hands to bring to pass His work and His glory which in to "bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man". We must be willing to change to become what he wants us to become. If we are not willing to change then he cannot use us to accomplish His purposes, He wants us to change to become what he wants us to become. He is the Master of our lives, He sees all things. He knows what we need and when we need it. I love you all and Hope that you have a great week.
