13 July 2015 Letter

Well, not too much to say this week.  Just had a cool experience when we were talking to one really stubborn dude.  As we talked I was explaining to him how we can say whatever to people, but we can't convince them.  They have to ask God to know for themselves and the Holy Ghost, the Spirit, is who convinces them.  He started to laugh and said we must not have the spirit because we weren't convincing him.  Then we explained to him, Remember Jesus?  How many people didn't believe him?  Does that mean He didn't have the Spirit?  He said, no of course not He is the Son of God, are you two comparing yourselves to him?  You can't be serious!

My companion then very firmly responded - We are his representatives and He sent us here to knock on your door because He knows you and knows what you need.  The man then was silent for literally ten seconds.  Then he said thank you and apologized and shut the door.  I was pretty shocked too at my companion's power and conviction but I then realized what he said was true.

I am a representative of Jesus Christ and I have the authority to do what I do, to call others unto repentance and baptism.  I love my calling and all the blessings it brings.  I know this work is true and that this church is true.  In the name our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

Love you all and I am praying for every one of you.

Elder Wes
