24 October 2011 - Exactly Where I Need To Be

What happened this week? Almost nothing worth writing home about. I don't even have any pictures.

Things are going along very well with Elder Felshaw. We work together well.

On Wednesday there was Zone Conference. In the various lessons and training I came to realize that the Lord knows me and is mindful of my situation. I have been put exactly where I need to be, both for my own growth and for the uplifting of others. A mission truly is an unparalleled growing and learning experience.

I am glad to hear someone else in my ward is on a mission now as well. Say hello to Holly for me.

Helaman 13: 25 - 29
Describes our day perfectly.

25 And now when ye talk, ye say: If our days had been in the days of our fathers of old, we would not have slain the prophets; we would not have stoned them, and cast them out.
26 Behold ye are worse than they; for as the Lord liveth, if a prophet come among you and declareth unto you the word of the Lord, which testifieth of your sins and iniquities, ye are angry with him, and cast him out and seek all manner of ways to destroy him; yea, you will say that he is a false prophet, and that he is a sinner, and of the devil, because he testifieth that your deeds are evil.
27 But behold, if a man shall come among you and shall say: Do this, and there is no iniquity; do that and ye shall not suffer; yea, he will say: Walk after the pride of your own hearts; yea, walk after the pride of your eyes, and do whatsoever your heart desireth—and if a man shall come among you and say this, ye will receive him, and say that he is a prophet.
28 Yea, ye will lift him up, and ye will give unto him of your substance; ye will give unto him of your gold, and of your silver, and ye will clothe him with costly apparel; and because he speaketh flattering words unto you, and he saith that all is well, then ye will not find fault with him.
29 O ye wicked and ye perverse generation; ye hardened and ye stiffnecked people, how long will ye suppose that the Lord will suffer you? Yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind guides? Yea, how long will ye choose darkness rather than light?
