So there was a very small earthquake near Saijo. Very small I could barely feel it, but it was cool to hear some of the stories from other people:) We also have a new district leader in Saijo. The old district leader we had got in a basketball accident. So now he is in America getting emergencies surgery.
As something fun. One of our investigators gave us a wonderful home cooked meal of Pig ears and stomach! And by gosh, it was absolutely-positively-
As a spiritual thought :)
I was reading a talk called "Blessings of Being Unified" from April 1987. I really enjoyed this talk and it really got me thinking about Charity. Charity is the pure love of Christ, and charity is different from anything else.... Because it never fails. It always continues, and carries on. It always progresses.
And Christ loves everyone. And if we are to be one with Christ, and love the way He did. We need to be unified and love as He loves. Because it is when we are not. When we select who we care for, or when we select who we will include or exclude, that we loose the opportunity to exercise the gift of Charity.
Another thing that got me thinking was the idea of "Not having Charity". That at Judgment, if we were to complain to Christ, and to gossip about someone to Him. Or simply hold resentment and anger at someone in the presence of the Lord. How petty we would probably feel. That while looking at Christ in the face. A person who had the MOST UNFAIR life in all of human existence......
We were talking about how "X" didn't do this, or how "X" isn't very nice..... How ridiculous we would feel. How ashamed we would be. To the point where to hold on to such feelings, we be against nature in a sense....
(And I have a scripture verse to go along with this... But I can't find it right now! Haha, if I remember for next blog (which I probably won't) I'll include it :)
Thank you for all your patience and prayers. I feel them! And much love
Here are some pics!
