February 16, 2015 Letter...

He came to my church hahaha... too wild.. and ya I gave him a hug.. super sweet:) I was so surprised and he was like.. hey, I don't know you and you don't know me but I'm your cousin... haha super smooth. Such a cool experience :) His parents live in our mission, a zone called Condivilla! Super close to where I am.

And yeah, BYU games sadly are more fun than Jazz games.. that's the darn truth. Especially when you have friends playing :)

Yes, christmas presents.. love them. Still super stoked. 

And you finally met Mom #2 ... that's what I'm talking about.. it's about time!!! Tell her I said happy late b-day and that I hope she had a super duper b-day. F'real I'm glad you guys finally met. And yeah, the pic on Dropbox.. me gusta.

The Valentine's gift was great too.. THANK YOU. The blender bottle, candy (Hugs and Rips, exactly what I wanted) and everything else!!! And a special thank you for the little advent calender thing. I really do love it :) Thanks for putting time into it and doing something like that. Carrie is the freakin' greatest too for sending the scriptures.. you guys rock! Love ya mama!

This week was sloooowwwww because, yeah, it's always slow after a baptism, but we pushed through and we're hoping things get better this week. We had interviews this week and they were great. President is a stud and Hermana Borg is too darn sweet. I can't stand it. Transfers are next week and I'm about 100% sure I'm leaving.. it's super rare to be in a sector for more than 4 transfers and that's exactly what I have. I don't know where I'll be going and who I'll be with, but I'm excited to leave to be honest, I really want to experimentar something different, meet different people, and work in a different area. It's always good to change things up. Change is good :) and I adjust pretty well to change. So yeah, I'm excited for that. The work here in the ward Leoncio Prado (look it up on Facebook I think it has pics of me) Barrio Leoncio Prado it's called I think, is going good. I love the Bishop of the ward and I've learned so much from him and his family. I'm gonna miss so many of the members and investigators I've worked with here, but it's time to go. I've been thinking a lot about conversion lately... a little bit of Alma, the sons of Mosiah, and Paul (Saul)... how they were all working in iniquity to destroy the church of God, but angels of the Lord (the Lord is Saul's case) appeared to them to convince them of their evil-doings. They were all converted after these experiences, and became some of the most powerful missionaries/prophet/apostle that the world has ever seen. I have been thinking though a lot lately... how their conversions were a little bit different from how ours might be. We might not see angels, we might not see visions, but our conversions will come. The gift most precious in this life, perhaps more valuable than seeing an angel, is the gift of the holy ghost. If we are diligently seeking a testimony, if we are doing our part to find that, showing the Lord we really want to know, we will acquire a testimony; we will acquire what we seek. The Lord has promised he that diligently seeks a testimony will find it. If we don't have testimony's now, we need to diligently seek one. The holy ghost will work in our minds and in our hearts. Especially for my little brothers, who are about to go on missions; acquire a testimony. Read the BOM, ask God specifically if it's true. Don't give up until you receive confirmations. Like Alma said in the book of Alma 5:46 - 

   46 "Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God. Behold, I have fasted and prayed many days that I might know these things of myself. And now I do know of myself that they are true; for the Lord God hath made them manifest unto me by his Holy Spirit; and this is the spirit of revelation which is in me."

Answers will come. But we've got to put in our part to receive them, Like Alma, we need to fast, we need to pray, and the Lord will respond through his holy spirit. We have potentials greater than we know, we need to first acquire a knowledge and testimony of this work, then fulfill our potential as sons and daughters of God, as his workers in his work of salvation.

Love you guys,

Elder Cluff
