We also had the chance to go to the hospital and give this man named Veli San Miguel a blessing. Needless to say his apendix burst so we went with a member in our ward to give him a blessing. He was in Really bad shape, but tommorrow he is returning home and he said the blessing really helped him so that was definately great to see.
We also had the chance to set a baptisimal date with this man named Korsa. He is a former Muslim, but he has been reading the Bible everyday. Its for the, so hopefully all goes well with that.
hahaha. and this is what basically all finnish babies look like here because its so cold. So cute..
Hope everyone has a great week!!!
Also, in my personal study in John 15:1 where it talks about how Jesus Christ is the tree and we are the vine, I was thinking about how if we are not getting daily nutriment from the tree and roots the vine dies. It doesnt die instantly but it becomes weaker and dies. The same is with us, god and Jesus Christ is always there, it is we who turn away from god and become comfortable with sin. Probably my favorite word in Finnish is Tehdä Parranus, where it literally means to do improvement. (its the finnish word for repentance) repentance isnt mean to defeat us because we did something wrong, its only there so we can do improvement. I dont see who wouldnt want to improve in life, for improvement is happiness. Thats what makes the plan of happiness so, its improvement, eternal progression. Daily scripture study, daily prayer, church attendance, temple, and service. The formula isnt hard, just like gods word is easy. Its we who complicate our own success formulas. Food for thought
