We found a new family yesterday!! at a family night. they are evangelist but we just had a lesson about the family and the proclamation and watched a video and it went great they loved it!! They said they are going to investigate the church. a few days before that, the mom of the same family was sick and for some reason and her leg hurt a ton. her neighbors who are members asked her if she wanted a blessing from the elders and she said it was alright i image that she thought well my leg hurts like crap and i believe in God its worth a try. We came in and blessed her with the power of the priesthood i got to say the blessing and told her to be healed, i didnt ask God that she might be healed or maybe be healed but to be healed. I really realized the power of the priesthood after that blessing. God gives the priesthood to righteous living men that are willing to serve God. So that we can give blessing in the name of Jesus Christ. Its as if Jesus was giving the blessing not me. And i know that Jesus would never say, ok we blessing that you maybe can walk if you really want to. No i know and i knew he would say I command that, you shall walk and shall run!!!! Jesus Christ did it in the past and he never changes so he does it today. After the blessing we sat down and talked and she said he has heard a the same words in other churched before but never has felt what she felt on that day. I know it was by the power of God that we can bless people and i dont brag about this power cause it is not mine but it is of my King and my God. I am nothing compared to him yet. i Just serve him and represent him when he needs me to!
yeah its alright i know that the lord prepares people and i just need to find that sometimes they are just now ready for the harvest but i have to go now and i love you all say hi to the family and tell them i love them and have fun and be safe at the coast i dont want anyone drowning on my mission.
This is a poem (from a hymn) that Rob shared with Caleb:Know this that every soul is free
To chose his life and what he'll be
For this eternal truth is giv'n
That God will force no man to heav'n
He'll call, persuade, direct aright
And bless with wisdom, love and light
In nameless ways be good and kind
But never force the human mind
Freedom and reason make us men
Take these away and what are we then?
Mere animals, and just as well
The beasts may think of heav'n or hell
May we no more our pow'rs abuse,
But ways of truth and goodness choose
Our God is pleased when we improve
His grace and seek His perfect love
