Only like 2 More of These... ;(

My Northern North American Bestie
Not a lot to report this week.  Imma keep it nice and simple.

We had the worldwide missionary broadcast and there were some changes.  We had the schedule change which our mission implemented one or two weeks ago.  It was just clarified.  We get an extra hour of sleep now.  thats nice.  I still go to bed at 22:30 though...im just use to it by now.  And we have some other little flexibility things.  Not a big deal imo..
They also talked about how we only have 4 key indicators which is sooo cool!  So inspired and the purpose for new misisnaries will be so much more clear and helpful.  No more comparing useless numbers to people.  Its really nic

e and useful.
As part of the broadcast, we got to go to bucharest and i got to see some of my favourite homies :)  so that was nice.

Spiritual Thought:
D&C 88:34
"And again, verily I say unto you, that which is governed by law is also preserved by law  
and perfected and sanctified by the same."

Romans  4: 14-16 
"For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect. Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace..."

 2 Corinthians 3:17
"...Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."


Id just like to share some cool insight i received from my study of "law".  Just call me a lawyer now :) 
Well in DC we learn that following the law perfects us, preserves us and sanctifies us.  And i pondered as to why that is.  What is the technical process behind that?  Because even God has a method to his madness.  And Romans in the Bible talks so much about this theme of "the spirit leads to freedom and law helps us".  So during my studies i found these other verses that helpeds answer my questions.  Romans 4 helped me understand that blind faith or following the law blindly (as would be the Law of Moses) doesnt help us to truly excercise our faith and agency.  Your brain allows you to make choices and not just be an heir but a follower by choice.  And thats how your faith isnt made void.
Continuing, we learn the role of the Holy ghost is to sanctify and preserve and protect and comfort.  When we follow the law, we gain the holy ghost and are worthy to have him as our companion.  As we choose to be obediant, we are asking for that companionship and we therefore are made free and sanctified instead of slaves to our sins.  I know the Spirit helps to sanctify us and to be truly free.  That freedom allows us to be obediant and become better disciples of Jesus. Its such a great opportunity to be an official rep of Him and i am gonna continue giving him my all these last 2 weeks.
