October 27, 2014

This week was awesome! We started teaching this Muslim guy. I cant pronounce his first name, so we call him "Brother Abdalla" :) It is so different to teach someone who doesn't already have a solid background belief in Jesus Christ! But I just love teaching him! His sweet wife comes in and sits with us wearing her wrap thing (I totally forgot what its called! It covers her from head to toe.. what's that called again?). They just moved here from Sudan a year ago. Brother Abdalla is the only one who knows English, they speak Arabic to each other. They have such a sweet, precious family! I have loved teaching them because it strengthens my testimony of how much we need Jesus Christ! He has to be the Son of God, he wasn't just a prophet or a good man. I know that he was chosen to come to the earth to perform the Atonement for us. And having complete access to that atonement is the only way that we can ever be in God's presence again! We are so lucky to have the full gospel of Jesus Christ. We access His atonement through faith, repentance, baptism, the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end. If we miss one of those steps we cannot make it!

Also this week we attended another Holiness Baptist church. Its called "Heaven-Bound Ministries". Its a little church in a one room trailer that one of our investigators attends. They just formed that church, they didn't like what their pastor was preaching so they broke off and made a new church! The new pastor gave a good sermon on Mark 8. But there was a little false doctrine that I recognized. I was also surprised to find that I couldn't feel the Spirit. I am so grateful that we have the full gospel!

I am wishing you the best week yet! I love you!
