so this last week i ate lunch at this members house on sunday and she is super smart and now so much about the gospel. and i was inspired by her. i realized that i was satisfied with my self being the plane old elder furrows and i had stopped searching for the voice of the spirit. she asked me if i have ever had an expirence where i have heard the spirit talk to me to tell me what i needed to do? and i though and thought and i have never had an expirience like that. i left her house determined to really have the spirit be my constant companion and to let him give me inspiration and lead me in the ways that the lord would have me go. this week i prayed more than i have ever prayed. i am trying to become worthy to have the spirit be present in my life at all times. i want to know when i am being guided by the spirit. i realized that i must become a way better person than i am right now. i must forgive all those who have wronged me and i must make things right not only with men but more importantly with God. i still havnt heard the voice but i know that as i continue on praying and realling have a pure desire to be an instrument in the Lords hands that the holy ghost will be with me always. many of us think that once we are baptised we have the spirit with us at all times no matter what. but the spirit is very easy to offend and we must strive to feel his presence in our lives even after baptism. this week the new secratary is pretty much ready to do everytning by him self so i have had a lot of free time. i am reading the miracle of forgivness. it is such an amazing book and it is helping me so much to realize what i must do to be able to have the spirit as a constant companion. i love this gospel! Ilove the Lord and i know that Jesus Christ suffered for all of our sins. his part is finished now it depends on us to search to better ourselves and repent. im so happy to be serving a full time mission in the church that Jesus Christ restored threw a young man called joseph smith. I know that this is Christ church and that this is his work. im starting to realize the importance of it more and more everyday. i looked out the window the other day in the office from the 15th floor and i saw how many people there are in this world that still need to hear the true gospel. the responsiblity of the saints of these last days is of great importance and i know that we all must strive to help all the people to hear of these glad tidings. when i looked out the window i thought of the second coming and how that day will be. i pictured a stuble field burning and i thought to myslef, that i will do what ever it takes to not be among the stuble. i have a lot of work to do ha ha.
well i love you all i hope you have a great week next week i will send some pics to you guys. have a good one. i know that i will!
Love Edler Furrows
