Grove, Oklahoma


Elder Ostler

Long journeys wear me out

Hey everyone! what a week it has been. kind of a tougher one.

so does everyone remember me talking about my new homie kane who came to church? so he got into looking some stuff up and ran into some anti. after explaining this to us i took an emotional blow. that was really tough for me to hear me and kane had gotten pretty tight and to hear that really hurt in all honesty. so we then told him how you can look wherever you want and find dirt on any church you want, but the source of truth that we have is the book of mormon. then went on to read moroni 10:3-5 (which i will include at the end of my email) and told him thats how he is going to find out. not by looking at the negatives, but by taking the necessary spiritual steps to know and pondering on them. he said he would. so everyone please keep him in your prayers!

so we had transfer calls last night and.... i am staying! elder ostler is going to the promised land known as prairie grove! most of you know i spent roughly 6 months there! and yes, it indeed was rough, but nonetheless it was a great time in my mission and i loved it there so he has a huge list of people to say hi to for me already! i am getting elder hill, i dont know anything about him other than he is coming from fort scott, kansas. and has been out for a little over 4 months as well as elder ostler. so thats that!

so everyone as earlier mentioned, here is the scripture i promised:

3 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.

4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know thetruth of all things.

so that is the promise at the end. and that is our source of truth. i encourage you all to take those steps mentions in vs. 4.

i love you all! keep it real!
