Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like cr…

So a quick update on my companion: He is back to walking, but we had to go back to Tacloban on Friday. With Interviews this week, he will be talking with president to make sure he can still work and the sort.

So something really cool happened this week. We were doing some TC’s in this park in our area (really good area as there are ALWAYS new people, and probably a hundred of them). As always, we just go around talking to different people. My companion suggested we talk to these two Youth on this Motorbike. So, after giving them a 5 Minute summary of the Restoration, we continued on our way. After doing some TC’s, we were about ready to go to have dinner. But, we decided to try and get 30 TC’s prior to eating. As we began walking, those two youth whom we Talked to earlier came back with 2 of their friends. They said “tell them what you told us”. I never thought that a simple TC would actually impact someone enough to go to their friends and in essence tell them to come talk to us. We are in a sense of urgency right now. The work of Gathering Israel is progressing. This is not the time to use a hand tool, it is the time to use the bit giant machines, those that take in hundreds of acres of the field each day. It is time to reap thousands, not just a few. We need to find and teach as many as possible.
I had a really interesting realization happen this week. We were in the office, waiting for our Mission President and his wife to talk to my companion over the phone, and I was talking to a senior missionary. He asked me how long I have left, and I realized that I am about to get to my 11th Month. This was crazy. I actually think it creates some depression, realizing that there IS A END. Thinking about it, scares me. I realize how much I still have to do, and realize that I am far from where I want to be. Also, it does not matter where I want to be, just where he wants me to be. I just need to serve him with all my “Heart, might, mind and strength” (D&C4:3) That is why I am glad that I still have over a year to serve him. I just need to serve him now. I do not need to wait to become the disciple of Jesus Christ that he wants me to be. There is no more waiting. I have seen  how fast these 11 months go. As I have been told, the next 13 go ever faster. I need to begin NOW. Because I know that NOW is the time.
The Lord has blessed me, forgiven me, and in essence has been there through everything. How grateful I am for him. His atonement is real. He will forgive you, and does forgive you. If you truly repent, he WILL NOT remember it anymore. As Isaiah shares: “though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) . I know this to be true. He will Forgive you. This picture is so true. Your clothes, your self, even your will can be changed to follow his more fully.
With Love,
