FROM DJ -
Alright, I survived another week.
I was in a bit more of a hurry last week so there are some things I never mentioned.
Lord saw fit to help me with losing weight. my room is on the 4th
(top)floor of the residence hall and my classroom is on the 5th(top)
floor of another building. with no elevators. on top of this my
companions are very much jocks and are big into physical fitness. so I
don't have much choice.
Dear Elder works. Don't hesitate to give that out to people. with all
the studying of the gospel and Spanish It's nice to take a 3 minute
break to read a letter.
Over the last couple of weeks I've
learned to rely on the Lord more than ever. A realization I had was
"I'm going to a Spanish speaking mission to teach me to rely more on the
Spirit instead of my own words." I have a new favorite scripture that I
discovered during scripture study this week. I was starting to wonder
if I was up to the immense work that was being placed upon me. first a
scripture mastery came to mind. Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with
all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy
ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths." this helped but I
was still a little concerned. my new favorite scripture is the other
one I discovered while searching for what the reference on the scripture
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
9. And He said unto me, My grace is
sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most
gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power
of Christ may rest upon me.
10. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in
necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I
am weak, then am I strong.
If I'm doing what's right and what
the Lord has asked me to do my weaknesses bring humility and the Lord
will strengthen my week points and help me overcome any weakness to do
I'll send pictures later. this computer doesn't want to recognize my camera.
