Jesus the Christ


Well I am glad for your email dad! Sounds like Utah is warming back up that is good to here. Glad that work is going well. 

But ya my area... what can I tell you is is on the side of a mountain basically. And the people are really receptive to the Gospel and that kind kicked me in the rear end when i got here. Because in my last are the people didn't want anything. But it is nice that they actually listen to you here. 

The thing that I am going to miss when I get back in the food. Specially Lomo Soltado! It is soooooo goood!!! I am anxious just to see the house and visit with friends! 

My comp. is crazy. No not crazy but he loves to work hard. If it all ends well In March we will be able to baptize each week! He really helps me to stay on top on things here. He is from Columbia but lives in Ecuador. He lives by the beach en Ecuador. He is a normal guy--a little kooky but hey he is a really nice guy.  

This week has been a blast! We had a baptism this Saturday! We are really working hard here in my Zone! It is so nice to here from you, Dad and C each week. Just know that it fills me with so much joy to hear from you guys. Love you all. Well this week has been a really busy week. In my area there are hardly any members. They all live in the area of my District Leader. Well due to that I told my comp that we will have to contact hard core if we want to find new people. And that is exactly what we did this week. We contacted hard core. We found a family that wanted to come to church this Sunday but due to miscommunication they couldn't make it. And we are now teaching the family of the recent convert that we baptized 2 week ago! They are awesome. We visited them yesterday in the evening and they told us that yes they are looking for a religion that can bring this peace and happiness. So we started teaching them in that instant and they want to come to church and hear more about what The Gospel has to offer. 

I am also reading Jesus the Christ! It is the most amazing book I have ever read in my whole life. I am in Chapter 17. I just got done with the part where he the author is talking about the Sermon on the Mount. It struck me to see that Christ explained that the Gospel has more power over The Mosiac Law in that time.

1. ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time... (Mosiac Law)
2. But I say unto you, (His Gospel) 

 He always stated a truth of the Law and then used the Gospel to over power it.  Study this chapter and chapter 6 and you will see that pattern. It made me realize that The Gospel is the only thing in this world that can make us become like Him as he said to us in the last verse of that chapter in Matthew in 48 

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

And now compare it with 3 Nephi 12, 13, 14 And you will see interesting things.
