He saved me from Spiritual death when I was 16

This is my companion climbing trees to find fruit for us... Money was kind of tight so we stuck to natural juice... IT WAS GREAT!!

Sorry I am running late today! We were talking to a few people before coming!! But this is the message for the week! This week we had a miracle... We have someone who will be baptized not this Saturday but the following and then the Saturday after we have someone else who will be baptized...  I am doing better mom please go to sleep. I am FINE. I am grateful for ALL you are doing TRUST ME. You are doing way to much as it is to be worrying about your boy who is 500 miles away. You have to put faith in the Lord that he will watch over me and protect me as he always has. He saved me from death when I was 4 years old for this exact reason. He saved me from Spiritual death when I was 16 for this exact reason. I HAVE to suffer a few things in order to stay humble and rely on him. ALL MISSIONARIES HAVE. From Paul to Ammon. Last night I had a heart to heart with my companion and he literally said something that quoted my patriarchal blessing. He told me that he had no idea how it is that I suffered so much and still kept going. He said I was a pure example to him of a missionary. It gives him the strength to keep going. My Patriarchal blessing says ¨You shall bring many souls unto Christ, YEA even by your example will you bring them to Him.¨ Mom He is my everything. He is the reason I exist. He´s my purpose. I found a scripture that I absolutely love that explains why I am here. It is found in Doctrine and Covenants 65 its says 

 Hearken, and lo, a voice as of one sent down from on high, who is mighty and powerful, whose going forth is unto the ends of the earth, yea, whose voice is unto men—Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
 The keys of the kingdom of God are committed unto man on the earth, and from thence shall the gospel roll forth unto the ends of the earth, as the stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands shall roll forth, until it has filled the whole earth.
 Yea, a voice crying—Prepare ye the way of the Lord, prepare ye the supper of the Lamb, make ready for the Bridegroom.
 Pray unto the Lord, call upon his holy name, make known his wonderful works among the people.
 Call upon the Lord, that his kingdom may go forth upon the earth, that the inhabitants thereof may receive it, and be prepared for the days to come, in the which the Son of Man shall come down in heaven, clothed in the brightness of his glory, to meet the kingdom of God which is set up on the earth.
 Wherefore, may the kingdom of God go forth, that the kingdom of heaven may come, that thou, O God, mayest be glorified in heaven so on earth, that thine enemies may be subdued; for thine is the honor, power and glory, forever and ever. Amen.

I testify that He lives. He suffered. He paid the price. I can go through a couple of trials of health and Spirit... Because HE went through it 10 billion times over. Love you Mom and Dad
