Well Happy Easter that has already passed. But the meaning never will as this passed month the mission has been studying heavily on the atonement. My appreciation and understanding has greatly expanded and I'm so grateful for what Christ himself has done for each and everyone of us. No words can ultimately describe such an act of love.
I'd like to share at least one story that happened recently. The first week when I entered my new area in mililani we had a Member in Virgina call to ask us missionaries to do all that we can to get her brother a blessing and to encourage him to come back to church and straighten out his life. Well in short all of that happened, Her brother completely changed his life around thought true lasting repentance. It was a remarkable experience to be the tool to help him overcome his major stumbling blocks with the help of the bishop. Sadly right after he made the change he got deployed to the mainland never to hear from him again until Saturday when getting a call from him about his continuation in following Christ. He's now the 1st counselor in the Young men's and the assistant to the scout master. He also mentioned that he goes out with the missionaries each week and is going to hold a meeting for all the military to teach them about what we believe. How cool is that? But the best part is that his past girlfriend in Hawaii saw his remarkable change and wants to do it her self. her, the mom and the daughter all came to Easter Sunday leaving the chapel with tears of joy. She said that the past week she kept coming up with the number 3:16 in everything she was doing. And in Sunday school we watch Finding Faith In Christ, where at the end it shares the scripture John 3:16. "For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son, That whosoever beliveth on him shall not perish but have everlasting life." It was an answer to her prays and I can't wait to continue to teach her. All because of the example of someone changing there life. It was and is quite remarkable.
Thanks for all your support, I know I say that all the time but I"m really grateful for it. Remember how important our example is for others in helping them stay or enter the straight and narrow path
