6 Months! and Pics

Well its been Six months! 4 Months here in the Philippines! Wow time has gone by fast! I am also being transferred to a New Area although we figured this and many Members have been very sad about it but its what the Lord has chosen and you just kinda have to go with it! =P hahaha well all is well here in Jaen and i hope that things continue to Progress while i am gone. We have found a lot of potential investigators and i really hope that they will truly listen to the message and come unto Christ's Fold. I have been doing the whole Bible study thing and yes its hard but I truly do love the Parable of the Sheep especially the 99 and 1 Parable. Its one of my favorites because of Jaen. There are so many inactive that need to come back before they become Spiritually Dead and continue to fall away. Also the Parable of the Two Sons and the one that left and Sinned but came back and the Father Greeted him with open arms and gave him the Fattest of all the (Goats?) and the obedient son was so mad at his Father for doing this. The Father just said because you have been obedient your reward is far greater! But because your brother who was lost has returned it's a time of Celebration! Now let us be happy! and in comparison of the 99 and 1 it says when you find that lost Sheep how great is the joy of finding that one that you put it on your shoulders and carry it back and tell your neighbors, “I have found the one!” If we take these parables and apply them to the ones who are lost in our wards and loved ones, and use the teachings of Jesus about Let your Light Shine from 3 Nephi 12:14-16 and 3 Nephi 18:24, and we do our best to help them see that Light that We have, and guide them out of the Darkness back into Christ's Fold, oh how great will that day be! But not for us, but for them-- for they have been lost and have been found and returned! This is the thing i have learned from Jaen: that we need to do our part to be that Example of Christ and Find those Lost Ones and not by forcing and chastising them, but by Being an Example unto them and greet them with open hands and kindness. This is how Jesus taught and that is how we should act. Once again i am sorry for the Preaching but this is what i do and what i teach to the members. I love everyone of you and challenge you to find and hearken unto your lost sheep or the other sheep that know not. Through your Examples and kindness to them. they will want what you have, and you will be the one that has opened or reopened their hearts to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for all your love and support!
