After Elder Miner and I had Francis read this a hush came into the room. I then asked Francis "After reading this do you have faith in the lord Jesus Christ that Joseph Smith Is a Prophet that was called of God to restore His church on Earth" Francis said yes, I proceeded to ask him "Then in believing that do you believe that God would put a Prophet on Earth in this day in age to still talk and receive Revelation for us?" Francis again said yes. Then in went quiet again and the spirit prompted me to ask a third question, "Francis with having this knowledge will you then strive to become like your Savior Jesus Christ and prepare yourself to enter into the waters of Baptism" and again he said yes! then he proceeded to say, "In all my studies and religious reading I have never come across a book or scriptures that explain where Jesus has been and if he visited Africa, and now you have showed me this, no it doesn't say Africa specifically but it pretty much leads you to think that's where he also went"
Sooo that was a huge break through this week, and then we get transferred woooohooo haha, that's ok the lord will put good missionaries here and not let him fall!
Last night Elder Miner and I went to Brother Mathews (less Active) and said goodbye to him and hope to see him in two years and before we left he showed us this Canadian Flag that had Missionary signings on it, but only a few and he told us that only the special missionaries that have brought joy to our family can sign this, so that was a really privileged thing :) and then he proceeded to give me a bottle of Chipoltle Tabasco that his wife brought back from the states! it was awesome haha, when dad sent me one, I took it to his place and showed him it, because we both love spice and I said this isn't spicy, but has a nice flavor! I'm going to miss that family, but will never forget about them, and we will just have to stop by and see them when you come pick me up! :)
I hope this is a good blog entry for you dad, it was a really awesome one in my book if you ask me! haha Love you both so very much!
