I know most of you are curious about transfers so Ill tell you all whats going on with that. Right now living in the apartment and serving in the mamponse ward are: Elder Nilsson and me and Elder Perry and Elder Babira. Nilsson and Perry are getting transferred. Babira and I will become companions and no one new is coming. So they are combining the two areas and making the apartment a 2 man apartment. That means my teaching pool just doubled and we got tons of work to do! Im super excited and also a little stressed because ive never stayed in a 2 man apartment before and also now my area is huge and its going to take very careful planning to get things going. The ward is great though so they will be able to help us a lot.Some highlights:
Doctrine and Covenants 33:7-13
7 Yea, verily, verily, I say unto you, that the field is white already to harvest; wherefore, thrust in your sickles, and reap with all your might, mind, and strength.
8 Open your mouths and they shall be filled, and you shall become even as Nephi of old, who journeyed from Jerusalem in the wilderness.
9 Yea, open your mouths and spare not, and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your backs, for lo, I am with you.
10 Yea, open your mouths and they shall be filled, saying: Repent, repent, and prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand;
11 Yea, repent and be baptized, every one of you, for a remission of your sins; yea, be baptized even by water, and then cometh the baptism of fire and of the Holy Ghost.
12 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, this is my gospel; and remember that they shall have faith in me or they can in nowise be saved;
13 And upon this rock I will build my church; yea, upon this rock ye are built, and if ye continue, the gates of hell shall not prevail against you.
I promise that as we open our mouths to the people around us and do as the Lord expects us to do (which is to share the gospel), Your testimony will be strengthened and you will have the spirit with you always.
