Week 10: Stand firm in Christ!
So, everyone keeps asking about the ship in Jeju. Many people did die unfortunately. It was a terrible accident and many people are very saddened by this. Basically, the whole world has kind of stopped over here. Many people are mourning at this time. But at the same time the country is coming together. We can see people coming together and praying for those who have died and for their families. We are praying that the families will be comforted and that the missionaries will find them and comfort them.
We really need to make sure we keep our faith grounded in Christ. STAND UP FOR CHRIST. He is what keeps us strong. Many people that fall away in the church are people who have lost that foundation. The times are coming and we must be firm. We were proselyting and someone told us that Heavenly Father doesn’t exist because he let many people die in this accident. It made me feel more firm in my beliefs. Christ and Heavenly Father do exist! They love us and watch over us all the time. They only want what is best for us. Build your faith in Christ and you cannot fall away. That is why we are Representatives of Christ. He is the only and true way.
How is Guy Baxter doing? I pray for him multiple times a day for his sight come back and for his face to heal. Let me know an update on his health.
I see the blessings of the gospel everyday! God is everywhere and in everything.
The other day we were proselyting and then we got proselyted to from some Jehova’s Witness missionaries. We didn’t quite understand what they were saying even though my companion is super fluent and can understand alot! I think the Lord kept us from hearing. But what we did do is just testified of Christ and the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. We thanked them for trying to spread the good word and we left peacefully. There are sooo many churches here. It feels goood to stand up for my beliefs and testify! It just solidifies my testimony even more so.
I gotta go!!!! love you!!!
Love, Sister Orme
