Week 3 Modesto California Mission 7/20/2016

Arrived at the Modesto California Mission

Sunday I watched Character of Christ again and afterward Elder Bednar came and talked to us!! It was super cool...
Mon I flew from Utah to the Oakland airport and I am meeting with President Palmer my mission president. He is very spiritual and very spiritually minded...

I really liked how Elder Bednar talks about how when we would usually turn inward the Savior turns outward. what I got out of his talk was that if you become converted you will not fall away from god and he quotes Alma 23:5 "yea, say unto you, as the Lord liveth, as many of the Lamanites as believed in their preaching, and were converted unto the Lord, never did fall away."
he answers the question how can I become converted, and he answered that question by saying that we become converted by using the character of christ which is turning outward, and turning away from the natural man (Mosiah 3:19) "For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever,unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spiritand putteth off the natural man and becometh saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as child,submissivemeek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as child doth submit to his father." and Elder Bednar mentioned how only through the atonement of Christ can we change and turn outward. 
so I challenge you all to help someone feel the savior's love and his I know that he can save us, I don't know how he can do it, but I know The Savior can. In his name. Amen.
