Transfer day!!! Tanner did not get transferred! He is staying in the same area and with the same companion, Elder Gomez. He is happy. He did get sick from something but not sick enough to stop him for working hard. He said, “Its becoming normal to get sick sometimes. haha!” I feel bad that he feels it is normal to get sick now. I hope that when he comes home that he will not get sick from eating the food here and drinking the water here.
I told Tanner to read Helaman 7:5 ” Condemning the righteous because of their righteousness; letting the guilty and the wicked go unpunished because of their money; and moreover to be held in office at the head of government, to rule and do according to their wills, that they might get gain and glory of the world, and, moreover, that they might the more easily commit adultery, and steal, and kill, and do according to their own wills—” because it totally described the world today. Tanner said’ “Wow. Well this world really is going to hell in a hand basket isn’t it? Yesterday in church someone said the Mexican government is wants to make a law that will make it so we can’t contact in the streets or knock doors. Everything will have to be through references from members. But who knows if it will actually pass or not. But no matter what the wicked do or what Satan does, nothing will stop the going forth of this Work. It is the work of our Almighty God and it will go on and not only change the world but cover it and save those that want to be saved. See Daniel 2:44-45. ” 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall breakin pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” Tanner commented, “Well, we just have to keep our standards up high and cling to the iron rod and never let go. The world will go against us completely sooner or later. We must be strong and continue in our path of bettering ourselves to be like our Saviour. God will protect us.”
