Hello everyone! I did want to send out this quick E-mail to let you know what's going on.
Speaking of Church, we got to speak in church yesterday (Elder Golden and I). Elder Golden went first and talked about the Book of Mormon, and talked for about 30 minutes, so I didn't have a ton of time but I shared some things about the Holy Ghost I really liked. The quote that stood out to me the most was this:
Elder Neil L. Anderson:
"As evil increases in the world, there is a compensatory spiritual power for the righteous. As the world slides from its spiritual moorings, the Lord prepares the way for those who seek Him, offering them greater assurance, greater confirmation, and greater confidence in the spiritual direction they are traveling. The gift of the Holy Ghost becomes a brighter light in the emerging twilight.
To understand better, think of these comparisons: If the world were growing more physically dark, He could give us enhanced night vision. If loud noises were constantly in our ears, He could give us a filtering mechanism to block the unwanted sound. If the race we were running was extended, He could give us increased lung and muscle capacity."
Church is true!
