This week we got a new mission president. His travels were delayed he was supposed to arrive on Tuesday morning. So that being said. I was having a district leader meeting with president openshaw and around 7:35ish president gave a prayer. He prayed that the new president would not be harmed in his travels with the weather.(I thought it was odd he asked for his safety with the weather) Ok so about 3 minutes later the weather picked up and was horrible winds and thunderstorms. The old president had no idea it was going to do that. The new presidents plane came in for landing at around 7:40 so as it approached it hit the storm with 50 knot I believe cross winds and lightning. A 10 foot chunck of the right leading egde on the wing wripped off and was sucked into the engine. The leading edge getting wripped off should of taken the plane down. It has in the past. Then the piece getting sucked into the engine should of blown the engine up. The plane should of crashed. No doubt should it of crashed. I know that president openshaw was guided by the spirit to prayer for the safety of the president. I know that God was looking out for the president in his travels. It was a very cool experience to see. There is a picture of it if you search it. It was delta 101. So he had to be diverted on an emergency landing in montivedo and showed up her the next day at 5 in the morning.
This week has been focused around the new president. We are going out prosoliting again this Saturday so it should be fun. It helps learn you learn Spanish really quickly. I am getting more and more comfortable with it and and ready to be on the field already. I feel the best way to learn it now is to just use it. 3-4 weeks in the mtc is about all you need. The rest is just touch up stuff that you could do in the field.
I was reading in the bible and came across this. This was really cool.
In Ezekiel 37 it is prophesying of the resurrection of mankind.
However look at it from a different view. The view of the restoration of the gospel.
We were spiritually dead. We hadn’t had it in a while. Our bones were very dry (Ezekiel 37:2). He then put the breath back into us (Ezekiel 37:2). He put back in the spirit into our lives. In Ezekiel 37:15-17 it talks of the two sticks one of Judah. (the bible) (Christ came through the lineage of Judah). And on of Joseph through Ephraim. (Ezekiel was a prophet from 592-570 A.D.) (Lehi left Jerusalem at about 600 A.D.) (Lehi and his family did not make it to the promised land until roughly 589 A.D. so they didn’t have the prophecy when they left but around the time they got to America it was prophesied) so Lehi was of the line of joseph but of Manasseh. Ishmael was of the tribe of Ephraim. However the tribe of Ephraim had the birthright. So anything of joseph gets represented as though Ephraim. Also if you read verse 16 it explains it’s for everyone else. Then in verse 17 it says ‘’and join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.’’ This is the bible, the stick of Judah, and the book of Mormon, the stick of Ephraim through joseph. Through joseph smith we have both of these two sticks and they are one in thine hand. They have both been translated into a single tongue and put together so they can be one. And be used as one for the fullness of the gospel.
This also fulfills many prophecies in the bible talking about how the gospel of Christ will be taken from the earth and will then be restored (Acts 3:21). And the fullness of the gospel will be restored to the earth (Ephesians 1:10,6-10)
