Week 17 (January 12, 2015)

Baptism of Dora
This week has been pretty crazy!!!!  We had a lot of divisions going on so that we could split up and get more things done.  The zone leader and I spent a lot of time in my area talking with a lot of different people, fixing up our relations with some of them because my companion easily offends people.  Anyway we baptized a young girl named Dora this week!  Her brother and sister are close behind her!!!  My mom has the pic so she'll have to post it! 

So quick spiritual thought that I wanted to share! We are literally in the last days before the Second Coming.  We are warned in the scriptures about these days, and tells us of many things to watch out for. One of the things that we need to watch out for is pride. Pride is the great downfall of many nations, and many people.  Even those people in the church need to watch for this, because it is something very easy to miss in yourself (very difficult to see in yourself), but easy to see in others.  In the scriptures we learn of a time when the members of the church begin to raise themselves up in their own eyes, because of the many blessings the Lord gave them, and who began to persecute members of their own church. Look in Heleman 3:33-35 to see what these members did, and how the lord blessed those who continued to be humble.
