Dear Friends and Family,
This week was great. Sorry that this email might be short. My hands are still shaking from cutting wood in the cold this morning. I can't really control them. On Monday we had FHE at a sister's house. We watched the Brad Wilcox talk, 'His Grace is Sufficient'. I love that talk.
So one funny story, we were at an investigator's house. She is an older lady. She has this dog and we were playing fetch with it. It was getting tired, so it went and got a drink. The lady predicated that the dog was going to throw up and 5 seconds later it does. It looked like diarrhea (sry.) on the carpet. The lady gets up and right away starts putting it into a ball with paper towels. It was so gross. I was holding back laughs, but it was hard. I was in a slap happy mood all day. She is the best investigator.
This week we were at the Village Road apartments and after teaching a less active, I needed to wash my hands, because ... well, you know. We see this water spout and I went to wash my hands, turned on the water and it was brown and yellow, probably rusty, but still, gross.
I know short but, my brain hurts. I am now on Facebook, yay more responsibility.
11 Now, concerning the state of the soul between death and the resurrection—Behold, it has been made known unto me by an angel, that the spirits of all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body, yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil, are taken home to that God who gave them life.
12 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of those who are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow.
13 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of the wicked, yea, who are evil—for behold, they have no part nor portion of the Spirit of the Lord; for behold, they chose evil works rather than good; therefore the spirit of the devil did enter into them, and take possession of their house—and these shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth, and this because of their own iniquity, being led captive by the will of the devil.
14 Now this is the state of the souls of the wicked, yea, in darkness, and a state of awful, fearful looking for the fiery indignation of the wrath of God upon them; thus they remain in this state, as well as the righteous in paradise, until the time of their resurrection.
Good I know...
