Hey mom so i got my medicine! It is a different kind in the sense of the tablet, one is a a bar tablet and the other was a capsule but the person told me it was the same thing, so its all good! This week went by fast! We worked and got alot done, we got in 19 hours of tracting and we got 26 other lessons and we gave out 13 boms. Thats alot for us, we usually dont get that many lessons, but it seems the lord humbled those people with the tornado. Its funny because we sometimes prove people completely wrong with some of there ideas in a nice and simple way, being sweetly bold, but have the time they don’t really get what we just said. For Example we would explain to them that when Christ set up his earthly ministry, he called apostles by the laying of hands, so that when Christ died, his church and authority could go on. Then when the apostles were killed off, his priesthood authority was taken from the earth( it was taken away because people were wicked). So ordinances such as baptism could no longer be preformed properly. If a an ice cream truck tried to pull you over on the freeway would you pull over? No. Why? Sorry Jack, Ice cream man got nah authority. Why do you think Jesus Christ walked 40 miles to be baptized by John the Baptist. Because he was the only one with the authority. So we understand that all the prophets were killed off, what then? Then, that means there is no prophet. If there is no prophet how is the world going to receive revelation. Elder Corbin can only receive revelation for Elder Corbin, Elder Adams can only receive revelation for Elder Adams, but if God has called a TRUE prophet, that Prophet can receive revelation for everyone. Now, if we don’t have a prophet, and in the 4th century we didn’t, Constantine, gathered his peeps together, to form what they thought was the right way to live, WITHOUT A PROPHET, therefore it was all human wisdom that they relied upon. So Constantine and the bishops of the time formed the bible, putting what they THOUGHT was the best. That’s why we have books in the Bible like Songs of Solomon, Hebrews 6 : 1. Which contradicts the entire king james verson of the bible. On top of that the bible has been translated so many times! So, Constantine forms a new church not lead by god. Every other church falls under or is a break off of Constantines orginal church. THEREFORE THERE MUST BE A RESTORATION. Here is a quote from The Book Of Mormon, 2 Nephi 29-
6 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews?
7 Know ye not that there are more nations than one? Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea; and that I rule in the heavens above and in the earth beneath; and I bring forth my word unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth?
8 Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another? Wherefore, I speak the same words unto one nation like unto another. And when the two nations shall run together the testimony of the two nations shall run together also.
9 And I do this that I may prove unto many that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and that I speak forth my words according to mine own pleasure. And because that I have spoken one word ye need not suppose that I cannot speak another; for my work is not yet finished; neither shall it be until the end of man, neither from that time henceforth and forever.
10 Wherefore, because that ye have a Bible ye need not suppose that it contains all my words; neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written.
Know ye not that there are more nations than one?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DOGGGG GONIT FIGURE IT OUT YOU JAYBIRDS GOSH DANG!
Anyways church is true. So last week or so on Friday, so about week and a half ago, a wife gave us 40 dollars for us 4 elders to go get some food for dinner, because we cleaned there yard for daysss haha, so insisted and gave us 40 dollars, so then we went to Waffle house its ight, and some one payed for out dinner they payed for our ticket! So someone gave us money then payed for our dinner, so then the next night we went to this buffet place, Called #1 Habachi, it was good, i had craw-fish for the first time, sucked the brain juices it seriously is salty shrimp and then sucking warm ocean water of the brain haha, its not that bad and not that good haha, at least thats for the ones that i had, i also had frog legs, fried, they were okay, its like a chicken wing but like a tougher texture almost its unique its hard to explain. Then, since being out on the mission, a couple weeks ago I had some fried alligator which is not bad, some catfish which taste like dirt, and some fried okra. Which is like a weird vegetable, it aint to bad. Then we went to this little shack type place, and its pretty good its called Shawnuffs, its some really good bbq. Then about a couple of days ago we tracted into this guy called Norris. LEGEND, he was in the airforce, a retired lawyer and the airforce gives him money every month because he served for like 40 years or something. But we were talking to him, and he was telling us that if we can serve a mission we could do anything else in the world, hes like “i really like you guys, i served with some mormons in my flight team and they didnt commit adultery, smoke drink, nothing, it was amazing they are what true christians should really be” and we were like yeeee boiii, then he goes on ” i really admire you guys because if u can come out here and sell religion, you will be able to conquer anything when you get back, this is the hardest thing you will ever do, selling religion, i mean that is the hardest thing to sell” We just all laugh haha Norris he is the man, then we kind of taught him the restoration and the salvation, then on the way out he gave us 40 DOLLARS for us 2 elders, and were like what the heck the Lord is blessing us like no tomorrow! And he insisted, he like forced it into our hands and we were like okay, thanks norris! your the man, he basically is a mormon, but just does not realize it, he will in the next life tho!
