October 6, 2014

I got a little sick this week with a cough. I'm still fighting it off but it will be rolling out quickly! But this week was awesome!!!! We had conference!!! It's always the best time of the year in the mission!!! That and calling home of course;) But, I truly loved conference and what I learned was priceless. 
1. We must do everything we can to receive revelation 
2. We must fast and pay fast offerings 
3. Do the little things right, many more things. 
But I thought mostly about revelation. How do we receive it? and what must we do to be worthy to receive it? 

First off, what we have to do to be worthy. 
1. Live the commandment- How can we ask the lord do give us something when we don't even obey him? We must be obedient to him and we will receive all blessings
2. Keep Your Covenants- The Temple is the holiest place on the earth that you can go to and in going you will continually "cleanse yourself from the world of sin". 

Those are 2 things you must do. And now in order to receive it you must:
1. Study the Scriptures Effectively- Check in Preach My Gospel Chapter 2 to see how to do that
2. Prayer of Faith- Truly talk and express yourself with the Lord also Preach My Gospel Ch. 4 Pray with Faith 
3. Fast- Sacrifice the worldly to receive the spiritual blessing.

Those are just suggestions and from what I have lived so far its how I receive revelation. I know that as I have done it, I have been able to help myself and others have more success as missionaries and as people. I promise even as our prophets did this week that the only way to move on in this world in  happiness is by receiving revelations. It is essential in the salvation of all people. Without it you will not return to the kingdom of God and you lose your purpose in life. Learn to obtain revelation and when you receive it, obey what the Lord as taught. If you do it you will have eternal happiness. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen. 

Hope all is well back home.

I love you all!!!!!!!!
