I just gotta start out by saying I have two amazing examples in the mission field right now. Michael and Renden are both so powerful in their letters and I just love them both so much. Thanks Mama for forwarding their letters to me. I can see the changes that they have made just by reading their letters. IT is amazing what the love of the savior can do for us when we have that love in our hearts. I know my cousins have that love in their hearts and I am blessed to have them here in the field with me. They are some hardworking Elders that is for sure.
So Conference was really great to and it made me happy:) the thing that
stood out to me most was just the main topic of discussion of just the
commandments and how important they truly are. The commandments of God
should not be looked over and just not really thought about. The
commandments of God is the only way to Endure To The End. As children of
God he has given us commandments in order to feel his love and feel
true joy in our hearts. His commandments are not rules or burdens, his
commandments are happiness and joy to our lives that lead us to what
truly matters. Every commandment he gives has so much importance and I
truly do know that by Jesus Christ and his example and by following all
of his teachings, our hearts will feel his love and joy and our lives
will be guided by him.
I really feel I have gained a strong testimony of Gods commandments
since i have been on the mission and just that they are not a set of
rules or guidelines, they are each a way to feel joy in this life as a
child of God.
Nanay!!! you are awesome! you went and worked with the missionaries!
That is the real deal right there haha i am sure the spirit was so
strong when you bore your testimony. Mama, you have a strong testimony
of this Gospel and such an amazing desire to become more like your
Savior. You have not only been a great mama but you are an amazing
example to me and I am grateful for your testimony of this Gospel
because without your testimony I may have never found my own and that
really is truth. Keep working with them and I promise you that you will
even find more joy and blessings in your everyday life. God loves it
when we help build up his kingdom.
Oh ya and you are right, me and dad would be a great companionship:) Dad
is going to be a great missionary, he is a talented man alone and even
such a greater talented man with God.
Coop dawg, you are the man for keeping that head high and being the
example you should be. It doesnt matter that you lost the football game
because in your own words,,,,, whats the real game that we play in this
life? who's our coach? who are my teammates? everyday is a game coop and
if you can win that game everyday then that's all that really matters.
Coop you are a stud man and I am glad you had fun at homecoming those
are always fun to go to. Keep moving forward like you are and coop you
look really happy lil brother. GUAPO KA!
SO para sa akin, At general conference i had a great experience! So in
the Sunday morning session right before the prophet spoke and the mormon
tabernacle choir was singing, C my investigator leaned over and
said to me,,, " I can feel it Elder Clark, I truly do know that this is
the Church of God, his spirit is here." When he said that, man i cant
even describe how powerful and happy i was to hear that. I love being
able to help people come to the knowledge and feelings that this is the
true church of God. I love seeing people have no testimony and no belief
and then we teach them and they just grow to love the lessons and then
they just grow to love their Savior and this wonderful Gospel. People
can't deny the spirit. It testifies of truth and when they feel that
they know for themselves that what they have heard, studied or prayed
about is true and that is the beauty of testifying about the True Church
of God, I know that they will feel the spirit and I know that every time
i feel the spirit it is just a reassurance to me that these things are
true. I am a blessed missionary, God has given me so much and I am so
grateful for his plan for me and for his Gospel that he has provided for
his children. I promise you that you will feel true happiness as you
come to know your Savior Jesus Christ.
Mama thank you for your emails and I love you nanay!
Brothers and Sisters:::::: I know all y'all miss me like crazy because
c'mon, when us Clark siblings aren't together we just miss each other. I
love all of you so much and you are my best friends and I love you and I
want to tell you that I know what I am doing as a missionary for Gods
church is real and it is true and I am only away from my family to help
other families feel what we feel as siblings. We all feel love for each
other but it is because of Jesus Christ that we are so close. Ingat
lahat tayo at mahal ko kayo.
---- P.s So excited for Colbies mission call, she is so darn amazing and
i am about to email her right now and I am real excited. ahaha
Happy Days, All is Well
