March 28-April 3
Well what a great week it has been. We didn't get to see everyone we wanted. Things didn't go our way most of the time. We had to deal with some guys working on our apartment that didn't know what they were doing and basically just wasted our time. But none of that matters because we had the privilege of watching conference. We watched every session except for the Sunday afternoonsession. But the rest of them we had the opportunity to witness. We stayed at the stake center from 8am until about 7pm with no food or water just so we could see the 3 sessions being shown on Sunday. And though we were not physically nourished, we were spiritually nourished more than we could even handle. My head was about to burst by the end because of the amount of information that had been dumped on me in the few hours we were there. How wonderful it is to be able to hear from men whom you know to be prophets, seers, and revelators called of God to lead his people. Here in Ghana, when you walk down the street you can her "prophets" and "apostles" and the occasional "Doctor reverend pastor general overseer" all in one preaching to congregations through large speakers. The gist of what they say is just "Jesus! Holy Ghost Fire! Jesus!" Over and over and over again. Never have I felt any spirit come from any of these false prophet or from their churches which have been set up only to get gain. However, Saturday and Sunday I heard men, who really hold the priesthood, who are really called of God, and who receive revelation to guide us, speak with power and authority that can not be found anywhere but in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know this church is true. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and that the other apostles are as well. I know that if we follow their counsel and listen to their words we will align ourselves with God and our will shall mold to fit his, not the other way around. This I share with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen. Hope you all have a great week.
