HELLOOOOOOOO hellooooooo.. how are you all? life's grand. Hope you all are well and healthy and Striving with full effort in the Gospel of Our God, and continuing to Build the Kingdom of God here on this earth, preparatory to the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If not, I don't know what you are doing. =) Ching! So this week has been spectacular! Sister ANNIE HAS BEEN BAPTIZED! It's a MIRACLE! Well Heavenly Father knew it would happen :) But it is a miraculous thing to witness! She is so wonderful, she is going to make an amazing strong and useful and powerful instrument in the Lords hands. Sorry I don't have a lot of time to write because I spent too much time uploading pictures and writing back individual family members. But I would like to leave you with a few thoughts from church yesterday. It was a lot about being converted to the Gospel and how to stay active once you are already a member. Brother Kevin Koh related it to being doers of the work, not just receivers. So we receive receive receive all during church and then at 2 0 clock (or when ever yours ends) the doors open, and you then become GIVERS and DOERS of the Work of the Lord. James 1:22-25 President Thomas S. Monson said that in order to keep ourselves active we must 1. Do the best that we can ( Educate yourselves, study hard) 2. marry the right person, at the right place, in the right time. and number 3. Be fully active in the church! (or otherwise, pay your tithing!) Harold B. Lee said something to the effect (this is not verbatim, sorry I should have looked up all of these quotes word for word). Someone had asked him what the most important commandment was, and in response he said, The Most important commandment is the one you are having the most difficulty with. I know that this Gospel and Doctrine is the only true one, and there is no other way or path by which we can follow and make it back into the Presence of our God. I encourage you all whether you are New to the church, long timer, or have not yet partaken of the richness of the Gospel, the Learn the principles of the gospel and be DAILY applying them. And to just , do your best. God knows what our best is, and he loves us all unconditionally, and he is the PERFECT listener. His number is, "Just start talking" (sister Taylor) I love you all so much and am forever grateful for the support you give me through your words, pictures letters, incredible examples etc. BERTAHAN SAMPAI AKHIR!!!! Love always, Sister Blauer =) p.s. the picture below is a picture of our incredible investigators Sathees and kohila :))) ( and a their auntie sumati that just began learning) They will be baptized on the 17th of August, along with Philip and Cejay. I pray I stay through transfers next week to witness it!
