Doctrine & Covenants 93:1

"Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments, shall see my face and know that I am."

Rakas Perhe-
14 September (Syyskuu) 2009
This past week has been amazing. The Lord is teaching me so much about myself, Finnish, being a Christlike companion, and improving.
This past week my understanding of what everyone is saying is improving drastically. The Gift of Tongues is real. In church I was understanding discussions. Also the Lord is helping me improve my study methods and build the fire of learning Finnish. With the Spirit you can learn so much more including the unsatiable thirst for more knowledge. During the process the Lord blesses you even more with strength, insights, application of doctrinal principles. If we want to improve the Lord is there. Like it says in the scriptures His hands are still outstretched. We just need to reach.
In the Kymenlaakso branch (Kouvola) the stake presidency visited to call a new branch president. He has four children with another on the way. He is studying to get into medical school. He is such example to the members here in Kouvola.There are so many good families here.

Helaman 5:12

And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
