This week has gone by fast and not a lot has happened. We biked to Kuma again this week and have cut down the travel time. We fixed the cat problem by moving one of the cupboard and sticking a board in front the problem this week is fixing the door as we have not taken very good care of it and needs to be fixed. The package has not come yet because my guess is there is some confusion as the Jenks went home.
My message this week is focused on three words: Nakomai nakon Kristo (Come Unto Christ)
I would like to start with Matthew 11:28-30 which is about how we need to learn of Christ and as we learn of Christ we can get his help. In Moroni 10:32 it tells us to come unto Christ and be perfected in him. And in Omni 1:26 it explains how we come unto him by fasting and prayer and by enduring to the end. I know that my Redeemer lives and has already come to this earth not destroy the people in their sins but to save them and give them eternal Life (see John 3:16-17). I love my elder brother, Jesus Christ. I know that this Church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and it was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. And now it is lead by a living prophet whose name is President Thomas S. Monson. I testify that the Book of Mormon is the word of God as I have finished it this week in the language of Kiribati. Regardless of the language, it is true. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
