Hey! Wow this week has been crazy! This week I really have felt a love for Italy. Like it's a special place specifically for me. Through his Prophets, God sent me to Italia, and it has a special meaning now for me! I will always have a part of my heart that will bring me to Italy. I don't know how to describe it, but like this country and this culture and the art and the history are just becoming a part of me! I am just so lucky to be here, and for the rest if my life be able to have a special connection to Italia!!!
So, we talked about Silvia last week. Well we have done 3 lessons with her since last week and she came to church, and WE ARE GONNA BAPTISE HER THE 21ST OF DECEMBER!!! It is crazy! I can't believe how awesome the ways of the Lord are. So magestical, so perfect, so lit. I am just so happy that I am able to actually be a tool in Gods hands and guide someone to baptism! The lessons with her are crazy, like so spiritual, like super crazy thick spiritually that you could cut, and she has just been so prepared by the Lord in these last 10 years! Miracle! Missions are heckin great man! The only bummer is that I'm getting transferred on the 18th so I won't be there but the important thing is I prayed for a miracle for 6 months, and I got one! Heck ya! (I know this sounds like the everyday of some missionaries, but it's dang cool here).
Anyway my message to y'all is this: at this Christmas time we talk about Jesus. And we think of Santa Clause and how he sees us and watching If we have been bad or good. But now I wanna talk about another man that sees all you, or at least saw you...
Mormom 8: 35; "Behold, I speak unto you as if ye were present, and yet ye are not. But behold, Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me, and I know your doing." This is moroni telling us that he has see each and every one of you. He knew what you are doing and he knew the world we live in. This book has been written for us, for our day. People have sacrificed and at times died for it. And one day we are gonna have to look them in the face and say one of two things; "Thank you so much" or "Who are you?". Alright so let's try to be the first one. Let's truly read these people's stories. Let's study them and pray to be able to understand them and apply them in our personal lifes. Just as you and I live Nephi, Alma, Helaman, the 2000 stripling warriors, Mormon, Moroni and all the other people live. So let's learn from them like it says here;
Mormon 9: 31; "Condemn me not because of mine imperfection, neither my father, because of his imperfection, neither them who have written before him; but rather give thanks unto God that he hath made manifest unto you our imperfections, that ye may learn to be more wise than we have been."
Love you guys! LEARN from The Book of Mormon!!!
