Week 26 - Our Search for Happiness

So, side note, I've hit 40lbs lost on my mission, so yay for that!

I don't feel necessarily prompted to write an outrageously long letter. And there are many cool things I'd love to share with all of you about doctrine, however I desire to share what the Lord would have me share.

But I recently watched a video about Wilford Woodruff in the beginning of the church that I found SO MUCH peace from. He spoke of the need for prophets and apostles and priesthood and authority. I know that this church is the true church and I know that by fact and truth, mind and spirit, knowledge and revelation. If a man truly seeks to follow Christ, he would follow the words of this restored gospel. I feel as though I should ask you all to take 15mins of your time to watch the video in the link. All of God's blessings, promises and covenants are back on the earth and every man can partake of them.

But concerning this video I was touched by the sincere effort of  Brother Woodruff (later to be President Woodruff) because he had such a pure heart. The sincerity of his efforts in this video nearly brought me to tears. And just to think that all he was searching and longing for is something that I have and that I am sharing with everyone. I love this gospel. And I love you.

Until next time, loves!
