Alma 37:6-7

Alma 37:6-7
Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.

And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes; and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls.

Got My IPad

The England London Mission is now an iPad mission and it is so weird!
I love it though and am using now to email you. It is great to use to
teach. Using videos and scriptures and the gospel art book. The
Chinese love it because we can translate hard works from English to
Chinese in an instant.

Elder Kearon and Elder Nielson came to the mission on Tuesday and gave
some really powerful talks. The first thing they said when they period
before us is this; "We are sent here on direct assignment from the
first presidency and they was us to tell you that they trust you."

They both spoke with such understanding. They knew that problems that
the world is facing. They spoke by the power of the Holy Ghost and we
all felt it in that room.

I thought they would come to speak about the technical sides of how to
use an iPad in the worm but boy was I wrong. They title then
conference "Disciples in the digital age." They focused on the
principles of Agency, faith, and repentance. I loved the whole thing.

Elder Kearon was actually a convert to the church and was found by
sister missionaries right out front of the Hyde Park chapel. He is now
the Area President of the church here in Europe. He met his wife here
in this chapel. She was on a BYU study abroad program and she shared
how this chapel is sacred ground for their family. It was touching to
hear them tell us the entire story.

He said something that stood out to me. It was pertaining to the
Sister missionary who had stopped him.  He said that, "To this day I
have no idea what she said to get me to stop. It didn't matter what
she said. She had become the message." I thought that was powerful.
Sometimes we all worry too much about saying the right things.  Rather
it is more important that the radiance which illuminates around us is
always brighter than our words. "She could have said anything. I knew
that she had something that I didn't have, and I wanted it."

I have felt this last week a power and confidence which comes from
living the gospel fully. I feel it in my day. I feel it right when I
get off my knees from my morning prayer. I feel it In my teaching. And
I know that all of you can feel it if you work on increasing your
glow. This requires faith in Christ and repentance. Make positive
changes. Say your morning and evening prayers. Keep the commandment,
go to church, and read your scriptures. If these things are not
happening in your life and you make the changes to do them, I promise
that the people you interact with, will notice.

Things are going great here. Today we will be working with president
on the transfer which is next week. Any guesses for me? Am I staying
for my last transfer? Is my companion staying for his last transfer?
The world will never know until next Saturday! I love you and have a
great week!
Enjoy a nice selfie with the moves board.
