I met this guy named J. We taught him about Jesus and his Church and how it came back to the earth. Then he started telling us all these weird stories and tried to read our minds with his hands! Haha- it was funny but he believes the Book of Mormon is True. He was refusing to go to Church though - which doesn't make sense because if you believe the Book of Mormon is true, you believe that Christ's church is back on the earth. We read the last paragraph of the Intro to the Book of Mormon and that helped him understand. He came to Sacrament Meeting yesterday!
So there are tons of churches here in PR. TONSSSSSS!! But we need to remember that Christ has only 1. And that 1 Church of God has the Power..The PRIESTHOOD. Even though most of the Churches have Great Desires to Follow God they don't have the Power to do it. I LOVE this example in the Bible. Some Jews were trying to cast out an evil Spirit from a man in the name of Jesus Christ...and they were trying to do it....but the evil spirit responds to them saying, "I know Jesus..and I know Paul (the Apostle)... BUT WHO ARE YOU???? Even the evil spirit knew that Christ and Paul had the Power and that these men didn't have it. Even though they had good desires and they were trying to do good -its not enough. Sincerity isn't sufficient or a replacement for the Power of God. This passage is in Act 19:13-16
I sent you a bunch of pics of my new place here in Cabo Rojo. I love you all!!
