Week 93 - Perth, Western Australia - May 29, 2017 - Miracles

First off, Congrats to Matt for being ordained an Elder this week, I sent him an email sharing a bit with him about what it means to me to be a bearer of the Higher or Melchizedek priesthood...Although I have only been privileged to serve in this office for a short time, I have seen miracles, and I have seen the hand of God made manifest through this Godly power....We are given this Responsibility and as we learn how to serve others with it, and to keep the Oath and the covenant attached to it, the seed of Godhood within us Grows and develops as well as God's Work is furthered....For this purpose our Heavenly Father entrusts us with His power....We aren't his Creation we are His Children....And any Loving Parent Gives further and more mature responsibilities to Help their Child to Rise up and Become who they see they can become! What church can you go to that believes and teaches this? I know it's the truth...

This week We were stuffed city with heaps of meetings and pick ups from the airport and all that fun stuff...It didn't matter though because this is His work and He is able to do his own work....We had several people fall into our lap, a referral who we put on date...she is an African woman from South Sudan who has been studying with mormon missionaries for several years...she couldn't be baptized because her husband was a polygamist but now that he has passed away she can now! We also had a Brazilian couple fresh from Interlagos Sao Paulo 2 weeks ago just walk into church yesterday....The boy is a less active member and his girlfriend is a non-member. They had an awesome experience at church and they are excited to start again spiritually in Australia as well as temporally as they have come here for further job opportunities...:) 

My comp is a blithering Tank...I love him! We are straight brothers!

We all chose this path, To come here to earth to Experience Mortality...We chose to take this leap of Faith because of our Great Trust and Intense Love for Jesus Christ our oldest, Greatest, and Perfect Brother....Christ has come to Earth and perfectly accomplished everything he said he would....I loved the talk by one of the Sisters in conference about Raising a sin resistant Generation...The Greatness of what Christ accomplished is in the fact that He did Exactly what he said He would do. 

Because of Christ's example, the deepest and most sincere desire of my Heart is to do here on earth exactly what I said I would do before this life...and what I have said I would do again and again as I have taken upon myself Covenants that if honored bind me to Him. I testify of the reality of the Living Christ. We don't receive power in our lives from some moment of time 2,000 years ago in Gethsemane...We receive power in our lives Because Christ Lives today...He has borne our griefs, and paid the price for our sins...His living Soul Loves us and Desires us to do good and make it back to Him....He lives and understands us perfectly...and Because he lives He has said to us...

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have apeace. In the bworld ye shall havectribulation: but be of good dcheer; I have eovercome the world.

It is the LIVING CHRIST that has overcome the world. If you seek to do so as well there is only one way and that is through Him. I love Him.  I know he lives and loves us perfectly...The things I have felt I will never be able to deny...
