July 13th, 2015

Its been going well, weve been working stilll with the Mendozas to prepare their wedding the next week, they were a little bit doubtful but the wife went up to Quito this weekend to get some papers done so things look pretty good. Were working, or trying to work with the people weve had coming to church, investigators and less actives but we havent had too much success finding them in their houses or even contacting them, so we met a couple cool new people this week too.

We were talking to this dude who claims to be the leader of the all the churches and pastors, his names andres hes a little bit off but hes way funny. He says he goes from church to church teaching people to heal so that they can make more money. He says hes purified and almost is ready for his angel wings to sprout out of his back. He said that God has money too, but its cash only not credit. And that God has a car and there are highways in heaven. And that he can measure how much energy one has by simply shaking their hand- my companion has negative energy and I dont have any energy at all. Ha we talked a good while with him, and some how the conversation got to how God has a body of flesh and bones...and he said he knows thats true because there was that one guy who was building ships and he knew itd be dark so he took rocks to the mountain and the finger of God touched them. Haha he was talking about the brother of Jared, this man had read the whole book of Mormon. And he told us he knew it was true and that he had read Doctrine and Covenants too and that book was super important to understand Gods communication with men. Ha so we asked why he doestnt get baptized and he told us that baptism went out of style, and that God himself baptized him. Ha he wanted to come to church to meet and instruct the Bishop and to heal all of the sick there to charge them. He never showed up.

Jacob 3:1-2 Look unto God with firmness of mind, and prayunto him with exceeding faith, and he will console you inyour afflictions, and he will plead your cause, and senddown justice upon those who seek your destruction.

2 O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads andreceive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love;for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever.

Elder Crisp

Good week in the font ;)
