This week was great! Thanks to everyone for the early birthday wishes! The big 2-0 is on Tuesday 🙂 All-Ireland was this week and it was great to see familiar faces! Also had interviews with President and exchanges with the assistants. Overall great week. We taught a lot of new people and have a lot of people preparing for baptism. Hari is a man from Nepal that we taught on Monday. He is looking for a church to join and has a strong faith in Christ. He came to church and said he felt very peaceful and wants to continue to meet with us and come to church again next Sunday! He is awesome.
A scripture that I have been sharing a lot with people lately is Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. His fruit is the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and because of that, Joseph Smith translated it by the power of God. I love this church! I love my mission! I love you all!
