You guessed it! I am not getting transferred! Which means that I am going to be in the Palmdale 4th Ward for more than a quarter of my mission! I love this ward. We had our highly anticipated baptism this week!! It was an amazing service! We all felt the spirit so well. It has been a great week in the mission.
Recently President Layton asked us to read the Book of Mormon in 65 days. I’ve been reading about 9 pages a day. It is so awesome to read the Book of Mormon so quickly! This is the first time in my entire life that I’ve read the Book of Mormon like this. Today I was reading in 2nd Nephi 9 and 10 and I loved it! Those chapters are full of so much amazing doctrine! Here’s some of my favorite Verses
Chapter 9 Verse 26. For the atonement satisfieth the demands of his justice upon all those who have not the law given to them, that they are delivered from that awful monster, death and hell, and the devil, and the lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment; and they are restored to that God who gave them breath, which is the Holy One of Israel.
Chapter 10 Verse 24. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, reconcile yourselves to the will of God, and not to the will of the devil and the flesh; and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.
