A Matter of a Few Degrees


It's Elder Frame!

So, it's been a super great week!

One of my favorite people got baptized on Saturday!  In Visalia Jose Luis Hernandez and his wife Miriam were married and baptized!  It was AMAZING!  I have so many great memories with that man! He's been in contact with missionaries for 10 years!  It's a long story but in short, he changed A LOT and he's one of the strongest members of the church that I know of now!  Their baptism and wedding were one of the best memories I have in this life now.  Quoting Preach my Gospel "this is the most satisfying work that [I have] ever participated in." To top it all off Jose Luis told us that he and his family will be sealed for time and all eternity next year on the 26th of March so we'd better come back! It will be my pleasure. The blessings that come from missionary work are just the best.

We also had a super awesome training on Thursday about a matter of a few degrees and Alma 37:6 "...by small and simple things are great things brought to pass....."  It's the small things in our lives that will make or break them. President Uchtdorf's talk A Matter of a Few Degrees given a while back was a huge part of the teaching also.  Prayers said on a daily basis, scriptures studied, a kind word spoken are but a few small things that can be done to correct our course to put us on the straight and narrow path that leads to eternal life.  Every single thing we do in our days either invites or doesn't invite the spirit.  The small things add up quickly and if we don't make sure the adding us positive we could be in for a lot of trials.  So the invitation to us as missionaries was "will you correct your course by changing the small things you do every day?"  We committed to it and it's something we've all committed to do by being baptized.  Continual progression and improvement is what we promised to do to become more like our Savior.  Will you commit to correct your course by the small things?  Put yourself on the path just those last few degrees?  It's going to be hard.  The spirit will be honest with you and it might be things you love.  But if you do it, I promise you you'll see a new light in your lives.  You'll feel God's presence in your life more.  You will develop charity and love.

Love you all.
