This week I have been studying about the Authority we have. It´s hard to think that us 18 year old scoundrals who get lost in mountains could have the same authority Jesus Christ had. I had the hardest time understanding how i could do anything that could be even close to comparible to the things He did. I´m slowly learning though, that it´s not impossible, and God knows we can do it, maybe sometime we just lack the confidence in ourselves. I don´t have 100% confidence in myself still, but it has grown as I try to exercise my faith in my calling.
We have been teaching a teenager named Kevin for quite a while now. He´s 16 years old, and his mom and some of his syblings are members. His parents are separated, his dad being Catholic. He lives with his dad. We have seen such a change in him, and can see that he is ready to be baptised and make a convenant with his Father in Heaven. We challenged him to be baptized on the 21 of this month. He accepted, and wants to do everything he can to be ready for this special day.
I would love to get the e-mails some way from all these people going on missions!! I don´t know if you could hook me up, but that would be awesome! Love you Mom, and hope your week is FANTASTIC!! I am very very lucky to have you as my Mom. Thank you for reading this to whoever else who might be reading this, and hope you can apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ in your life, and do thing out of pure love for him. Because that´s what He wants, and what we have to give. Have a great week!
Love, Elder Jeffery
