4 Transfers left…

Hey guys,

Well like my title suggests today was transfer day and I’m staying! It
also means that I have 4 transfers left! Crazy right? I just read
Trevor’s email and he’s left with 3. Also what is up with everyone
growing up so fast?! I’m afraid when I get home none of you will be
recognizable. I’m pretty sure I’ll be the same way though. I’m not the
same 18 year old that hopped on the airplane in 2015… it’s now 2017
by the way. I’m kind of lucky though, a lot of my zone members are
really young on their missions so I’m still kicking! I haven’t kicked
mule mode since the windy’s!

Well it was a busy week. Not a lot of missionary work done due to all
of the meetings and general conference viewings, but I’ll share a few
experiences that I had. There was one young mom we were teaching last
week that surprised us with a visit to church on Sunday. My companion
met with her on exchanges with Elder Tsotetsi and she was kind of
upset. A lot has been happening in her life and she feels like she’s
been mistreated. She’s looking for direction in her life and thought
she would find it at church. When she was visited by Elder Tsotetsi he
bore powerful testimony of the power that Christ has in our lives.
When I and my companion came on our return appointment she explained
to us that all of her anger was replaced with indescribable feelings
of peace. She said when Elder Tsotetsi bore his testimony she just
knew in her heart what she had to do now. We gave her a date to be
baptized that very moment. The spirit was so strong and was confirming
such truth to her soul. Very tender moment.

We also had another great visitor come to church this Sunday. His name
is Avias. He’s a paraplegic from the waist down, and an Elder in his
Roman Catholic church. After hearing about our message of the apostasy
and restoration, truth just resonated in his heart. His faith was
enough for him to roll his way all the way to church last Sunday. His
faith was so great, as he listened to the Prophet and his apostles he
said he just knew this was true. It took great faith to leave his
responsibilities at his church. His friend used to always pick him up
on Sundays to go to church in his car and he said to him last Sunday
“Nope, I can’t go with you anymore, I’ve found the truth.” Cool guy.
He loves the Book of Mormon, and I’m excited for his baptism on the
30th of April.

Lately we’ve been facing some challenges with unity and functionality
in the branch, and it’s really been slowing down the work. Although we
have so many people to teach, it just is so hard to get them in the
waters of baptism because of problems of this and that. Our most
progressing investigators all can’t be baptized in the month of April
which means we won’t reach our goal. I’ve tried to come up with
solutions to the problems, and things are okay but it’s a little bit
slow. You know me haha I’m a little impatient. As I was contemplating
what to do I my mind turned me to the scriptures. I dunno ’bout you
guys, but for me revelation always comes through scripture. I found a
scripture that gave me the quite assurance that “what I was doing was
enough”. Although I won’t maybe see the end result of my labors, what
I’m doing is helping. If I just do my part I should be happy. In D&C
64:33 it says “Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are
laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things
proceedeth that which is great.

Well that about sums up my week. Still in Kadoma, still loving it.
Still loving the Lord’s work, never getting tired.

Much love,

More golf, more baptisms…

Well like the title suggests, we went golfing again and we had another
baptism. This time there was six of us so it was a little bit slow, but we
went with the same Rastafarian caddy so it was chill. My chipping game is ON POINT. I had three pars last week. One of my chips even went in the hole!
This time I wore sunscreen (the same sunscreen that I brought from home that
I haven’t finished yet) so I didn’t get burned like last time. I went with
my classic joggers and superman shirt look and totally rocked it with my
vans… so professional.

Anyways we also had another baptism for Pauline Piki. It’s the niece
of one of our recent converts. It was a good baptism and she was
confirmed the following Sunday. She doesn’t speak much English,
because she actually speaks Ndebele. It was a real difficulty teaching
her, but she prevailed.

Last week we also had a lot of exchanges, including with the
assistants. Really solid guys who really understand and love the work.
My previous, previous companion in the office is still there. It
always makes me smile when I see him. He’s definitely someone I’ll
have to keep in contact with when I get home. As well as exchanges
with the Assistants we went on more exchanges with some Elders in our
zone. I went with Elder Campbell, and this is his first transfer in
Zimbabwe. It being his first transfer I think he was a little bit
nervous to go on exchanges with me haha. It was all good though, he
did a good job, He’s actually from Iowa, which is kinda cool.

By the way at church I totally gave everyone fire. Lately there has
been some pretty heartbreaking disunity in the branch. Our last
session was men and women combined and President Chiwaka gave me some
minutes to talk in front of everyone. I gave them some stories about
some less actives because they didn’t feel like a part of the branch.
I then shared a scripture from 3 Nephi 12 When Jesus Christ says “Ye
are the light of the world”. It was pretty sweet. Although it was kind
of fire, it was the right time and it was done out of love. They all
appreciated my contributions.

Last week we met with lots of different interesting characters. We met
some LONG time less actives and a few individuals who flat out
rejected our message and anything to do with the Book of Mormon,
pretty interesting. There is one boy who we met last week who was
really interested, and when we came for the second time his mom was
there. She’s very young and it looks like she’d gone through some
tough times. At first she was very critical of our message, but as we
calmly explained and answered her questions she recognized some
truths. She goes to PHD Ministries which is run by a false prophet
named Prophet Magaya. We invited her to come to church and to learn
more and to our HUGE surprise she came! It was so wonderful as we saw
the Lord calming her storm, and touching her heart.

Another family we’ve been teaching came to church, all 4 of them. I
was so happy to see them. Like the mom in the last paragraph, this
family has faced huge difficulties recently and really needs some
help. I am so convinced of the healing power from Christ. All of these
families have been through some hard times, and had skepticism’s about
the church. We calmly expressed our love for them and the healing
power of the Atonement. This is what this gospel is supposed to do. So
many people are satisfied with their lives and think they don’t need
anything else. These special individuals are coming to the light, and
I can see God’s hand in their lives as they learn more about this
restored gospel, and it’s restored truths. Thinking about these
families always reminds me of a certain scripture.

Luke 4:18 says…

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to
preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering
of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,”

Man I love that scripture, it’s so true. I love my Savior, he’s there
for me in the good times and in the bad. I know he can heal these
broken families and individuals, and I love so much to be a part of
it.

That was my week. Pretty cool I guess. Next week is the last in this
transfer. Each transfer is 6 weeks and after this week I’m left with 4
transfers out of 17 in a whole mission… so crazy.

Much love,
Elder Robison

PS I found the worlds smallest lizard like you see in that picture.

Maxin’ and Relaxin’

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lame subject line. Does anyone remember where it’s from? hehe. Anyways this week was pretty solid we did lots of work and found lots of people waiting to hear the restored gospel! We didn’t see a lot of our old investigators, but quite randomly we found a lot of new investigators. Really as we just faced fall throughs we would just turn around and contact the next person we see or even ask the person who is there if there’s anyone else we could see. I could just see the Lord’s blessings pour out upon us as we endured our journey doing the Lord’s work. To a great surprise when we tallied our new investigators at the end of the week, we counted 25 new investigators. It felt like any other week, but like I said I think the Lord knew our struggles and now we have a lot more individuals and even families to teach.

This past week we were working in a part of our area called Waverly. It’s quite big, but it’s a little bit far from where the chapel is so not a lot of people are able to come to church. There are a few members who stay there and one of them is someone I have to tell you about. His name is Brother Jongwe. Probably one of the most hilarious and converted individuals you have ever met. When we get there he was preparing some sadza for him to eat. When he see’s us he just stands up and says “Ah! Elders of Israel! Um… uhh… Okay! No matter the food! Let’s bring souls to the Lord!” Sooo funny. He’s just someone who looooves missionary work. He took us to see tons of people who were ready for the restored gospel. Between appointments he’ll just stop people on the street and be like “Elders! This is my brother (not really his brother, but that’s what he calls everyone) he needs the restored gospel!” He’ll just stop them and then explain who we are then tells them to give us their contacts haha, it’s so funny! And so helpful too because it makes it easier for people to listen if their neighbor is testifying of the same stuff. He’s even memorized our number and gives it to people he see’s. We get random phone calls all the time now. It’s so awesome! As he’s walking down the street in front of us, I’ll just hear him say to himself quietly but triumphantly “Glory to the Lord”. That’s his favorite phrase! Glory to the Lord. When we see someone and start teaching them. I’ll explain a scripture, or start to testify of the first vision and then you’ll just hear “You see! That’s how it is! You see!” It’s just hilarious. When someone isn’t there for an appointment he’ll say “no matter! Let’s go fishing”. I could just go on and on.

Well I think you know now the kind of people we work with. I can probably tell you about one family that we’re teaching called the Takawira’s. Just a humble baba looking for truth. He was actually just a street contact, but when I explained what we do he got really excited! When we went to his house we gave him a Book of Mormon and upon our return he read the first 10 chapters of 1 Nephi! He then explained the contents of what happened as if he was actually there! We immediately extended a baptismal date and he accepted! Along with a visit to church on Sunday! Just goes to show that God is gathering his elect. Very prepared man. We are trying to work with the wife now, wish us luck!

Well though the week was eventful. That’s about as much as I could pack in to this email. Those were probably my highlights. Still strong, and still putting our trust in the Lord. Please keep sending me pictures!

Much love,
Elder Robison

With Patience Comes Understanding

Hey guys,

Well it’s been an eventful, but stressful week. Lot’s of teaching, but never in my whole mission have I faced so much disappointment. What I thought was a good week ended up to be very trying. We have so many people on date for baptisms, but they just fail to come to church! We only had like 2 come to church, and one was just visiting from Kwekwe. In my heart I felt so frustrated and impatient. Amidst all of this, at the end of our empty investigators class a member offered the closing prayer. As I was listening to his prayer his words calmed my heart. He thanked God for the souls that were here today, and for their sacrifice and desire for truth. I just had this overwhelming feeling of gratefulness for those we did have that day.

After church we just continued our work and saw a few more people who either failed to come to church, or heard from us for the first time. When we got home that night I pulled an old paper from my files in the MTC. It was an apostolic blessing invoked by Elder Bednar during a training broadcast. The blessing included waiting on the Lord. Not being so impatient. That we will trust in his promises, and wait for those blessings. Everyone works according to their own pace and I think I just need to accept that. My beating heart then turned away from it’s impatience and I felt an overwhelming feeling of peace. It’s kind of funny but this kind of reminded me of basketball. You’ll find that more experienced point guards are more patient and attack when the time is right. They make the right moves according to what they read from the defense. Well kind of like basketball I guess I could apply this to missionary work. Every one has different needs. An experienced missionary knows not to be disappointed when things don’t work out or they’re not progressing as fast as you want them to. We need to wait on the Lord and trust in His timing. With everything there is a purpose, and a reason. Our job is to just keep doing what we’re supposed to. Whether I plant seeds, or reap the fruits of my labor it matters not, save it those souls are saved in the Kingdom of God. In Psalms 27 (A psalm of David) it says…

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

Last week I explained these problems we’re having in our area in our regular interviews with President Mkhabela. He basically told me the same thing. He told me to be of good courage and never give up. Just keep trying with all discipline. He also said to continue motivating and encouraging the zone. Man I love my Mission President.

Well on the 26th of March I’m left with exactly 6 months of my mission. I’ve (technically) served a sister mission! Well time surely is flying and I feel like I sit in this internet cafe every other day but I’ll just keep pressing forward. Thank you so much for the motivation and inspiration to endure.

Wait on the Lord! Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, then it’s not the end.

Much love,
Elder Robison

Birthday Weekend

Hey guys,

Thank you all again for the wonderful birthday wishes. I feel so loved from so many miles away. Well it was a pretty good birthday weekend. Me and the other guys in Kadoma had some fun at their new house. Those guys are crazy, they built a rope swing in their yard and attached it to a huge tree. It’s so sick! Then we just go so hyped I just decided to build a campfire pit, so sweet! We roasted wieners, some marshmellows, then topped it off with chocolate cake and caramel ice cream. It really was a good day. We had lots of clean fun.
Well it was also a good week because the same thing that was slowing us down last week (our broken car) was replaced with a brand new one! Straight from the dealership :). People are like “perks of the being a former assistant”, but I beg to differ! Haha it’s okay at least we get to work much more effectively now.
Last week was also zone meeting. I was given the task to train all of the missionaries on their purpose. We read the first few pages in PMG and I was reminded of quite a few things. During the next few transfers a lot of missionaries will be leaving the mission and President wants us all to be reminded of what our purpose is. One thing I noticed that it repeated a lot was something called an “Eternal Family”. It says that our job is to bring everyone to the knowledge that we are all a part of this Eternal Family, and that sharing this Gospel becomes much easier as we begin to see everyone around us as our brothers and sisters. It also discusses much about God’s Plan of Salvation, and the doctrines put forth for the salvation and happiness of His children. It then goes on to explain about the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and how if we know what it truly means in our lives then our desire to spread this message increases. As I was reading my scriptures last week, I began to ponder about the Plan of Salvation a lot. I turned to lots of scriptures and then it just hit me. This plan, is just perfect. It’s just perfect. No flaws, no loopholes, just perfection. In Alma 12:30 it says…
30 And they began from that time forth to call on his name; therefore God conversed with men, and made known unto them the plan of redemption, which had been prepared from the foundation of the world; and this he made known unto them according to their faith and repentance and their holy works.
And there are so many more that testify of this great plan. To end this email I’ll share another experience we had, and actually something that I shared with President this week. This past week in Kadoma we’ve faced challenges, but of course have tried to learn from those experiences. Actually on Saturday we tallied up 9 fall throughs. Everyone we made appointments with either couldn’t make it or weren’t there, even our back ups weren’t there. Near the end of the day I just felt frustrated after only teaching one lesson the whole day. It was about 7:00 and I looked at my companion and said “I won’t give up! I won’t lose! There has to be someone we could see right now.” Well miracles were not wrought that night, but my spirit was still determined. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from missionary work is that the devil is at work too. I’m sure he wanted me to feel like a failure that night, and even after telling him I’m not quitting there still wasn’t anyone we could see. I now know that even when we pick ourselves back up he’s still at work. God wants to see if we’ll quit or not. My whole life I’ve hated the idea of quitting. So I’ll just keep moving forward no matter the consequences.
Well I love being a missionary, keep the faith.
Much love,
Elder Robison

PreBirthday Afflictions

Hey guys,

Well it really is my Birthday soon. Thank you everyone so much for the wishes! I was so overwhelmed with my inbox when I looked at it today. Truly, thank you so much. Yup it’ll be my last one before I get home, another milestone hehe. Anyways I hope I get to spend it well. The Elders in Kadoma are pretty sweet, I’m sure we’ll come up with something fun.

Well to get things started with this email it’s kind of bitter sweet. I’ll start with the sweet stuff, and then you’ll know why it’s bitter also.

Yesterday we had the great privilege of baptizing a man named Norman Chari. Brother to Brother Jakarasi, friend to many members, and had apparently been taught by missionaries before but just wasn’t interested. Well at the beginning of last transfer we were teaching his wife. After taking only a few lessons she really wanted us to meet him so that we could teach him too. He doesn’t speak much English so he always runs from us. One day we finally caught him and had a discussion with him. He then realized that we were trying just as hard to communicate with him in Shona, as he was trying with us in English. We began to teach him with his brother, and we later found that he’s had a pretty rough life. A smoker and a drinker, and has been to jail twice. Well he’s off parole, but still hadn’t gotten his life turned around. After our first lesson with him he promised to come to church with his wife and he came! He didn’t understand much at church, or during our lessons, but you could just tell how hard he was trying by the look in his eyes. He would just stare at you trying to grab every word he could. Well a few weeks down the road we taught him about the Word of Wisdom. He then explained to us his addiction to smoking, he would smoke about 15 cigarettes a day. But he said since he’s been coming to church, reading the Book of Mormon, and taking the lessons he’d already cut to only one a day without us even telling him that it was bad. He then committed to never smoking again and sure enough he never did. His repentance was so thorough and his joy was just overwhelming. He would always tell us just how happy he was. We then wed him and his wife and baptized them the following Sunday. Our last visit with him I had noticed how much his English has been improving and I asked “Brother Norman your English is so good, how did that happen? He then explained “It’s because of this book (referring to the Book of Mormon) I read it every day”. There is just an indescribable change within him, and his light is just manifest. People in the community are just asking “how did this happen? He looks so different”

Well that’s Norman. He was so happy to be baptized, such a changed man. And the bitter portion for this email is the struggles with transport, UGH. Our car had major issues and on the way to Kwekwe to get it fixed our car had a serious breakdown! We got it towed to Kwekwe and it won’t be fixed for like a week so it’s a LOT of walking these days haha. It’s two Kombi rides to our area and like two nights ago we had to walk home because our lessons were so late and it took like 2 hours! We got home close to 11:00 eish. I don’t know where else the bad news is. It’s kind of hard but you know me, I don’t complain. The work is still the same, still people to teach, still people to find.

Again thanks so much for all of the Birthday wishes! I feel so special, so many miles away from home. Well by the end of this month almost, I’ll be left with six months and you’re already asking me about school in January? Come on I gotta focus! Haha it’s okay but definitely soon I think that discussion will be taking place.

Still working, still praying. Keep the faith!

Much love,
Elder Robison

The Crew…

Hey guys,

Well  it was a good transfer but time flies when you’re having fun I guess. Elder Blignaut has been transferred to go and train someone in Harare, and I’ve been passed the torch in the Kwekwe Zone. It was a really fun transfer with a lot of stories to tell when I get home. I’ve built some pretty strong friendships that could even last past mission life. I could even dare say this was my funnest transfer since I’ve been on my mission. My new companion’s name is Elder Billings. He’s from my group! Remember when you dropped me off at the Salt Lake Airport and there was supposed to be another Elder there with me? Well he’s been here all this time and now the time has come and were are companions. My first American companion actually. I’m really excited to see what we can do for Rimuka during our time together.

Well last week wasn’t very eventful except for the wedding that occurred on Saturday. We wed two of our investigators. It’s the 2nd counselors younger brother. The most repentant, and humble human being you have ever met. Unfortunately they were not able to be baptized on Sunday, but on Saturday it was a very special wedding indeed. I’ve really grown to have a love for these people. I’ll send pictures of the wedding below.

Recently we had a training broadcast for all missionaries recently. The real broadcast actually happened in January, but you know, we got it on DVD’s late because well, this is Africa. Anyways we watched it and I really felt the inspiration that came from these men who sit on the missionary executive counsel. The change to our schedule really touched me, and I feel really good about it. The First Presidency, and the quorum of the twelve also feel good about it I guess. Sometimes I felt uneasy because I felt like some of the rules are for missions in the Unities States, but I guess they heard our cries and we have a more flexible schedule according to our circumstances.

Well the title of this email was “The Crew” because it’s kind of splitting up. Our district (that I sent a picture of us golfing) is split up, but those memories will be forever instilled in our hearts. Well this is the last transfer before I’m no longer a sister missionary haha. The sisters in my group are going home at the beginning of April. Getting there!

Anyways, not much else happened last week. We were very busy with interviews for our zone just traveling back and forth. Chegutu district baptized 14 in one day! We were up all night interviewing people haha. This mission is still on fire!

Much love,
Elder Robison

(No Subject)

Hey guys,

Well it sure has been a great week! Lot’s to talk about. So we can actually start with what happened today. This morning after getting back from the gym I was doing a few dishes in the kitchen. When I picked up one of the upside down pots, I saw a tarantula! Geez we’ve got tarantula’s in Kadomer’s!!! I mean, it wasn’t very big, and luckily my companion loves spiders so he calmed me down. It was a baby baboon spider, eish I did not like that haha. First one I’ve see since I’ve been in this country.

The next event that took place today was some GOLF! Yup I told you we were members of the Kadoma Golf Club so we just rented some clubs, got some balls and hired a caddy for like 10 dollars. It was so sweet! We just walked in to the complex and said “Yo can we play golf? And this guy with dreads, no shoes, and a shirt that said Jamaica on it walked up and said “You wanna play golf? I’ll be your caddy”… Ok haha. We went home straddled on some golfing gear and hit a 9 hole course. It was so much fun! I got a little burned, but it was totally worth it. I was a little rusty at first, but I soon got in to a groove. I’ve really improved! I got two pars, and I even chipped one in to the whole just outside of the green, sooo sweeet. We felt like total goofballs on the course but why not? This was probably the funnest Preparation Day I’ve ever had.

Last week was also my new zone’s first zone meeting. I’ll send a picture. So many sisters! Wow, it’s really quite a bit but I guess I’m handling it. It’s a sweet zone with a lot of dedicated missionaries. We’ve got some high hopes for this hot pocket in Zimbabwe. Me oh my is it so hot. And when it gets REALLY hot it down pours with rain soon afterwards. In my zone it covers three cities with a lot of gold mines, and I dunno what it is, it is just an oven here. Maybe I’m just overreacting because I left an air conditioned office like a month ago haha.

One thing that I’ve learned today is one of the ways the Lord can help us with our problems. It’s a little bit of a Shona culture to believe that when you make bad mistakes it’s because of demons, not because of you. People always ask about deliverance, and people here believe that Prophets or men of God are here to cast those evil spirits from us so we can continue making good decisions, or be delivered from sin. Well, it’s kind of my job to correct false doctrine when I come across it, and with perfect mildness I tried to help people understand the purpose of agency, or the freedom to choose. In Helaman 14:30-31 it says…

30 And now remember, remember, my brethren, that whosoever perisheth, perisheth unto himself; and whosoever doeth iniquity, doeth it unto himself; for behold, ye are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves; for behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and he hath made you free.

31 He hath given unto you that ye might know good from evil, and he hath given unto you that ye might choose life or death; and ye can do good and be restored unto that which is good, or have that which is good restored unto you; or ye can do evil, and have that which is evil restored unto you.

Agency is so important in God’s plan for us. The more we come to realize that, the more we come to more fully know the love that God has for us, and what this life is really about.

Well that was about it for the week. More lessons, more people. We’re preparing a couple, and one more candidate to be baptized next week! Hope for the best!

Much love,

Elder Robison

Only Jesus Can Save You

Hey guys,
So I’ll start this letter with a funny experience that I had this morning. So with the new changes to the timetable for missionaries. It allows us to leave the house at 8am. So this morning we had kind of a longer session at the gym (still chimping ya know) and near the end there was this old white guy who started lifting stuff. When we were about to leave, he says to us in his “American” accent, “Hey yer Mormon’s aren’t ya? Take these books, now I know I can’t convert ya, you’ve had the burning in the bosom. But I am here to testify to you that salvation can only come from the blood of Jesus Christ, and if you accept him as your personal Savior. There’s no church that can save ya, only Jesus Christ’ blood. I hope you have a change of heart” Well we were kind of just listening, and he didn’t really stick around so he left after his testimony. All four of us just looked at each other and were like “did that just happen?” Haha. I guess that’s what the view of the church is sometimes outside of Zimbabwe. I forget how ridiculed the “Mormon” church is back home.
Well after we did a bit of squash we made our way home. When we got home I read a little bit of that baptist preacher’s material. I said to myself “I don’t wanna judge, but only if this guy really knew, if only he really knew.” Sure he has plenty of scriptures to support himself, but is that really truth? In the long run is that really what’s going to bring you joy? Keeping God’s commandments out of fear of being thrust in to hell? Well I can truly testify to you that God lives, and he has restored truth again on earth. He has reached out his arm in love and again shown to us the doctrine of His kingdom. I’m grateful for Priesthood authority, and for the great privilege of seeing it at work on my mission. This is the true church of Jesus Christ. We don’t worship the church, we go because it is God’s kingdom once again established on the earth preparatory to the second coming of the Messiah. It is sad at times to see people falter because of blindness, and hardness of hearts. As a missionary I have always striven to remain as humble as possible, to allow the Spirit to work through me and be an effective advocate of the truth. This gospel is supposed to bring joy in our lives, it’s supposed to make us happy, “Men are that they might have joy”. That’s why we call it gospel, it means “good news”.
Another funny experience I had this week involved on of our investigators. He’s only like 10 years old, but he understands us so well and always comes to church. Well one day we made one of our visits and the mother said he was very sick. We walk inside and see him lying in bed. We could tell that he was in pain so we gave him a blessing then left. It wasn’t until we left that we realized he wasn’t sick at all! Some of his neighbors (who are some members) told us that he had been circumcised! Haha, we have no idea why it was done, or what the purpose is but it was still kind of something to laugh about.
Well my studies have kind of been all of over the place these last few weeks, but I did start to read the four gospels in the New Testament again. I can now see those events coming to life before my eyes. So yes, I Believe in Christ. I do accept him as my personal Savior (whatever that means), and I’m a Mormon. This work is true, and I testify that if you act on that faith that you hold dear that even in this world full of tribulation you can find peace.
The church is true!
Much love,
Elder Robison
