  Hello readers!  yes you heard right!  But back where? Well do you remember that one area over a year ago that i was doubled into?  Well that's the one!!! We just had Transfers and I got Doubled out of Springboro and then Doubled into Hayden Run!!!  Yes My Very First Area is also my Fifth Area!!!  My New companion is Elder Ryan Roberts. He is from Weston Idaho (by Preston) and Came out the same time with Elder Mason McClellan(<----- not sure on spelling) who has been his companion in the past also. so he has been out about a year.

    Let it be know that all these are references Just to the Doctrine And Covenants!  How many are in the Bible or Book of Mormon?  how about the Pearl of Great Price?

    I can Personly Testify of every one of these Blessings and know that You to can receive them!!!!! I Know that it is a commandment of God to Share the Gospel!!!! Why Would we not keep the Commandments of God?  He even tells us to prove him wrong!  If you do missionary work. your are entitled to these blessings. Simple as that!!!!  Jesus is the Christ. He Preached the Gospel while he was on the Earth and he now prepares our brothers and sisters to recive the Gospel. But it is Our (all who know the Love of Christ) duty to Gather them in!!! This I bear solemn witness of in the Holy name of My Savoir and Redeemer Jesus Christ, Even Jehovah the Creator. Amen

"Wherefore, for this cause I gave unto you the commandment that ye should go to The Ohio; and there I will give unto you my law; and there you shall be endowed with power from on high;"
