So....Ik denk niet dat ik veel meer te vertellen heb eigenlijk....wow...sad day...! Gosh...I literally don't have anything to tell you.
O.o I can share with you what I learned during my studies today though! :D I really like this scripture:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, this is my gospel; and ye know the things that ye must do in my church; for the works which ye have seen me do that shall ye also do; for that which ye have seen me do even that shall ye do; 2 Nephi 27:21
This scripture teaches us that a Restoration was NEEDED, because a Church that was exactly like the one that Christ had established when He was on the Earth couldn't be found. And as this scripture says: We need to do things the way Christ did them. There is really no excuse for changing doctrines and ordinances :) I also read the first part of a talk by Elder Perry this morning about the Book of Mormon and I really like this (it's actually a quote from President Benson): “The Book of Mormon was written for us today. God is the author of the book. It is a record of a fallen people, compiled by inspired men for our blessing today. Those people never had the book—it was meant for us.
But I really like this quote by Elder Perry himself: 'Among the lessons we learn from the Book of Mormon are the cause and effect of war and under what conditions it is justified. It tells of evils and dangers of secret combinations, which are built up to get power and gain over the people. It tells of the reality of Satan and gives an indication of some of the methods he uses. It advises us on the proper use of wealth. It tells us of the plain and precious truths of the gospel and the reality and divinity of Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice for all mankind. It informs us of the gathering of the house of Israel in the last days. It tells us of the purpose and principles of missionary work. It warns us against pride, indifference, procrastination, the dangers of false traditions, hypocrisy, and unchastity. Now it is up to us to study the Book of Mormon and learn of its principles and apply them in our lives'.
I know the Book of Mormon teaches us so many valuable lessons, and who would have thought it would even teach us about time management, and finances and ALL the principles of missionary work?! :D It's sooooo cool!!!! :D
Oh, and I likes what our zone leaders said during Zone Meeting this Friday: 'Missions are an MTC for life.'
I Love Y'all sooo much and have a blessed day!!!
Lots and Lots of LoveSister Spijkerman
