Tou Fen # 20

So just so you don't freak out next week, I'm going to be going to the temple next week so the next time I write will be on next Friday. :) Happy Belated Birthday Grandma Adams!! :) I love you!! This week was good! A lot better than last week. I am so humbled to so say that I am a representative of Jesus Christ. The Asia Area Stake Conference Broadcast was this weekend and in Elder Hales's talk he spoke of the power of His name (3 Nephi 11:10-11). I really want to become a more effective ambassador of the Lord, my Master and King, the Redeemer of the world. The Lin JT is not progressing as much as I wish they would be, but we met with them twice this week. They fed us on our first visit and then on our second visit was a little more serious and good. We completed sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so next week, we get to share the commandments!! They were down south visiting family this weekend so they couldn't come to church. We recently recontacted a former potential who just really needs the gospel in his life. We were at the market handing out English Tracts, and I saw him. We set up with him and he came. He came 20 minutes late, but he came. He has been on Binlang for a while because it gives him the energy to stay awake to provide for his family, but we shared with him about the Word of Wisdom, and about his Heavenly Father, asked him to spit it out right there and never do it again. It's been a week almost and still hasn't eaten it!! I'm so happy. His wife and son come back from Taibei this week so hopefully we can meet with them all! The Lord has blessed us with finding two golden investigators for the missionaries in Jinlong, and in Gaoxiong. They were great contacts and great lessons. We are praying for Huang Dx, and Guo Dx. Team Jesus!! I was reading in Alma 36 this week and as I read, I was reminded... The scriptures are so true!!! Alma shares his conversion step by step through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My testimony has been strengthened and I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is so simple and so clear, and so true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that those words are the things that will keep us on the straight and narrow path in our eternal progression, and I know that prayer is also an essential factor. I know that through daily study of the Book of Mormon and sincere prayer are the two most essential and basic things that we must do to continue on in Faith. To have strength and power through our Savior to Endure to the End. Specifically in doing the Lord's Work of Salvation. A personal daily study of the scriptures is so essential. I would like to give you all an invitation. One that I extend to people all the time but I'm going to change a little bit to fit you all and your efforts sharing the gospel. "Are you willing to develop your relationship with your Heavenly Father to bring to pass the salvation of souls by daily praying and studying the scriptures?" Take the time to ponder afterwards and set one goal of how you will help someone (one of your brothers or sisters) come unto Christ. I know that my Redeemer lives. I know that He is our Master, our King, and our Brother. Choose you this day whom ye will serve. Seek the Lord humbly, and faithfully. I know that as you will do this, you will see miracles in your life. I love you all! Love, Elder Westover (Jordan)
