October 12th, 2015

Things are going pretty well with investigators, were supporting abunch to help with a few commandments but weve seen a bunch of progress in, for example, jhon suarez and the pita family. Their testimonies were definitely strengthed this last weekend. They need to make some changes in their lives but are getting close to being ready for baptism.

This last weekend was stake conference of here Duran Norte, and they reorganized the presidency so we got to listen to Elder Waddell from the 70. The man is super powerful, he actually told us that hes going to be in the presiding bishopric, im not sure if thats been announced yet. One of the highlights of what he spoke on was about the prophetic priorities of today. He shared with us the revelation that the first presidency has had, and trained all the general authorites. It was definitely the underlying theme of general conference, and now it makes even more sense why. President Monson received revelation for every one of us, for how we, as the whole church can progress in our faith in God.

The answer is Sanctify completely the Sabbath Day. I think 80% of the talks this year at least mentioned that. That is what God wants for his church right now. As Waddell shared, we have a duty to act upon what the prophet says because we know that God appeared to a young man, and established his church through that young man. How we act on that knowledge, whether we choose to be obedient or no, will determine our destiny. We need to reach out and rescue the lost sheep, and sanctify more the sabbath day.

I feel super fortalized in my testimony that this church is divinely led by revelation, God calls men to lead his church, Christ lives, this is the truth and I know that independent of what any of you believe, nor what anybody else on this planet thinks.

Con amor,
Elder (S.) Crisp
