December 1, 2014: I am off to York!

Well....I have to leave Huddersfield.....and I am not too stoked. But I have heard really good things about York.

Huddersfield is exploding. We have had a lot of success this last week....so thats how I knew I was leaving. But it is all right. I will go teach all the posh people of York. I will also be serving with someone who came out with me. He grew up in North Carolina and England, but his family now lives in American Fork. His name is Elder McGee. Good kid. I am excited.

I don't have many stories this week...hmmm how about a spiritual thought.

So the world is so concerned with truth, and they are obsessed with finding it with as little work as possible. So they ask friends and families and neighbors. and google (probably the worst source of truth ever). and as soon as they hear something they like, they accept it. As long as it has enough backup, whether it is actually true or not. Lots of people will even join the church this way, which isn't inherently bad, because it is true. People even followed Christ because they saw the miracles. So lets bring up truth again.

Jesus Christ asked his apostles "whom do ye say that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."

Flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Truth can only be found through sincere prayer. It cannot be argued with. It cannot be changed. It cannot be hidden. Try though the world might, its efforts will be in vain.

I love this gospel. I love truth. I love my Saviour Jesus Christ for all he has done for me and for you. Seek him and you will find him.  He is the gift of this season. I love you guys!
