Letter #88 3-14-2016 Gering, Nebraska

Hey Everyone!!!
 Well another week has come and gone it is been a good week for us. This week we were meeting with our investigator who is on date for baptism on the 26th of March. Last time we visited with her we invited her to read Alma 32 and then we came back to see her, she is like that was so cool I read and I found my Book of Mormon a friend
gave me a long time ago and like this was the chapter in that copy of the Book of Mormon she told me to read when she gave it to me and you give me the same chapter like 2 years later and she thought that was so cool. We just told her that was all the spirit cause He knows what we need to hear all the time. But it is our choice to do what He directs us to do.

 But also this morning I was reading a talk from last general conference and something that stuck out to me was this:

“Brothers and sisters, living the gospel doesn’t need to be complicated.
It is really straightforward. It could be described like this:

Hearing the word of God with earnest intent leads us to believe in God and to trust His promises. The more we trust God, the more our hearts are filled with love for Him and for each other. Because of our love for God, we desire to follow Him and bring our
actions in alignment with His word. Because we love God, we want to serve Him; we want to bless the lives of others and help the poor and the needy. The more we walk in this path of discipleship, the more we desire to learn the word of God.”

We don't need to make things harder than it is, he also said this...

“First: are we making our discipleship too complicated?
This beautiful gospel is so simple a child can grasp it, yet so profound and complex that it will take a lifetime--even an eternity--of study and discovery to fully understand it.”

So we don't need to add things to make life harder life is already hard enough and we don't need to know everything like all we need is:

-faith in Jesus Christ
- atonement
- spirt
- enduring to the end

Now when I say faith in Jesus Christ I don't mean just believe in Him... Faith and believing are 2 different things, let me explain.  As you have heard faith is a action word so when we have faith we do what He asks to the best of our ability meaning giving it our all in going to church read scriptures and praying and using the Atonement, also, His Grace which we are saved by when we act and make it sufficient by repenting of our mistakes. But do we let what he has done Change us?

Love, Elder Urry
