September 8th, 2014

Hello family, friends, people who read, and blog followers to all greetings.

Lets make a list and I will expound on some of them. This week we met a drunk guy who said he was God and he owned the cops and he was going to call the whole police force on us Mormons.  We also met a lady with a beard.  I petted a cat without hating it.  We got a new car 2014 Chevy Cruze, it is very small and very short.  We had tons of meetings, cool and lame ones.  I broke Elder Riches bike!  That was neat, I guess I don't know my own strength.  And we biked, a lot. And finally, it's getting cool enough to open the windows at night!
We found a new investigator named Rick he is sooo prepared!! Before we even shared the Restoration he talked about Christ being in the Americas and told us about a bunch of other stuff that we already believe. It was amazing, he invited himself to church and at church he asked to be baptized, what an awesome experience! I gained a testimony this week of prayer and how much our Father in Heaven is very much aware of our needs and wants, and he wants to grant them to us and he can do that if we pray for them! 

It's been awesome to watch peoples progression as we share the gospel with them their life's turn around, but only if they want it to!

Here is a great scripture   Helaman 5:12 
 12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that YE MUST BUILD  your foundation; that WHEN the DEVIL SHALL send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when ALL his hail and his mighty storm SHALL beat upon you, it shall have NO power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon IF men build they CANNOT FALL. 

There is some pretty powerful language in that verse  things like SHALL and WILL the biggest,  IF!  I love it because bad things will happen and Satan is a jerk and we will come across some bad things or some trails, but we have a promise that if we build on Christ, We Cannot Fail!! Pretty sweet, eh?  That sums up most of our worries in life as long as we build upon Christ.

I hope you all have a great week!!  
Count your blessings and your sheep as you go to bed.  
Love you all,
Elder Joshua Braman
