Baseball, Baseball, Baseball!

This week was exhaaaaaaaausting! I still havent recovered from it. I dont think im going to either…We had a training meeting for all of the trainers and new missionaries, a couple exchanges, MLC, and a baseball game. The baseball game was a nice relaxing way to end the week. But I didnt get to sleep before 12:30 until Saturday night. Sunday night we are at the office late recording numbers. Monday-Wednesday we were at the office preparing trainings/paperwork for MLC. Then Friday night we didnt get home until late and between planning and everything else, we got to bed late again! So by the time Sunday rolled around i was crazy tired! The cool thing about it is that i feel physically depleted but i feel so spiritually feed. Its the only thing that keeps me going!

Our mission president let our whole mission go to the Lake Elsinore Storm game last friday! It turned out to be more of a mission reunion than anything… but it was way fun! haha. Every year that have a “Stormin Mormon” night where they invite local stakes all around riverside county. Right before the game started I went out on the field and told everyone that they needed to repent of their sins and be baptized…haha well thats what i wanted to say but i wasnt allowed to. But i did introduce our purpose as missionaries and gave a little speeeeech. It was a lot of fun being at the game. We were certainly the life of the party at the game. Ill attach some pics.

This week i have really be studying the power of the book of Mormon in our lives. Lately, i have been doing the Preach my Gospel Book of Mormon challenge and marking references, attributes, and words of Christ. Its amazing how big of a perspective it gives me. I understand things quite a bit more thoroughly now. So much of this gospel really hinges of the Book of Mormon. To be straight forward, the book is either from Satan or it is from God. There is no way you can read that book with an open heart, apply the principals contained inside of it, and be convinced that the book is not of God. I find myself thirsting to read from the book of Mormon. Whenever i have a hard time all i want to do is go lose myself in its pages. The spirit is so strong as i read through. If you havent read from the book of Mormon recently i challenge you to do so. Allow yourself to feel of the spirit that it contains. Draw closer to Christ by abiding by its precepts. I know that it is the word of God and as Joseph Smith said, it is the most correct of any other book in the world.

” For 179 years this book has been examined and attacked, denied and deconstructed, targeted and torn apart like perhaps no other book in modern religious history—perhaps like no other book in any religious history. And still it stands. Failed theories about its origins have been born and parroted and have died—from Ethan Smith to Solomon Spaulding to deranged paranoid to cunning genius. None of these frankly pathetic answers for this book has ever withstood examination because there is no other answer than the one Joseph gave as its young unlearned translator. In this I stand with my own great-grandfather, who said simply enough, “No wicked man could write such a book as this; and no good man would write it, unless it were true and he were commanded of God to do so.”
-Elder Holland

Well i hope you all are doing swell! Have a great week and keep pressing forward with steadfast faith in Christ!
