This week was full of much much work with not a whole lot of visible results. It is for sure a challenge. Again I say, I have not done anything so hard in my life. This is so spritually and physically exhausting. At least at the end of this week I got to watch General Conferance. Where the leadership of the church speaks to the whole world as to how we can live better, peaceful, and happy lives, as well as how we can become like Christ and fulfil His plan!
So I must say that this opportunity that we had to be able to listen to prophets in the modern day was incredible. The best spent 10 hours I have had in a while! The doctrines of the gospel were simplified so much for me! I gained more of a testimony of our plan of salvation. I love being able to answer these three questions with the people we teach.
Where did we come from before this life?
Why are we here?
Where are we going after this life?
The greatest question ever asked in my opinion was by Job. In chapter 14 verse 14, he proposed this
If a man die, shall he live again?
Will we live again? If so...How will we return to the very one that created us? What qualifies us to return to the kingdom of heaven? What is heaven like? What is final judgement and where do we go after? What happens to people that die without the opporutnity to learn the Gospel?
Many many questions are brought forth, but luckily God has spoken by the mouth of His prophets...both of old and modern, to be able to know what to do and how to live our lives
I share my testimony that I know that this church that I represent is the very same as the one established by Christ when he was on the earth. This Gospel is designed to make us happy in this life and secure our place in the Kingdom of Heaven, at the right hand of our Maker and King.
Have a good week
