District Conference - 24 Nov 2014

Dear Family,

This week was really good and ended up with a training that I will carry for the rest of my life. 

Friday morning we were doing a normal training session but we couldn't find the dvd and I decided to just skip a part and I had to do a training without preparation. I started off talking about conversion and how we gain testimonies. Then, than our goal is for people to have testimonies in the restored gospel and in the happiness that it brings. We talked about how we gained our testimonies for all parts of the gospel. Pray, scriptures, feeling the spirit and going to church. Then, we broke into the deep doctrine. People want proof that the church is true and that what we teach will bless them right? we ourselves need proof so we can grow our faith and receive more knowledge. We realized instantly the importance of the small invitations that we give people.

Will you pray about this message?
Will you read the Book of Mormon?
Will you go to church?
Will you keep the commandments?

All of these question can be made one question

Will you experiment this truth and follow it to find the blessings that come?
Will you create you own prove by following the simple truths?

We also learned the importance of the missionaries teaching the lessons. We have been set apart as special messengers to promise the blessings that people will receive from the gospel. We need to be worthy and willing to accept the spiritual inspiration to promise blessings. Then when the person takes the step of faith. The proof will come. 

We had a great week with the Districts conference. The area has been having difficulty with leadership and obedience. Our mission president gave us a promise. He said ´The time is coming when the gospel will grow a lot in this city but before that time the Lord is waiting for all of you to pass through the repentance process and clean the inner vessel. It was great to hear such a promise and to know that it will come true one day. 

I hope everyone has a great week and can use the simple things to become more converted. 
I love you all. Just as a warning the next skype call is gunna be rather short compared to the last one so we´ll get everything very coordinated. 

Love, Elder Jacobson
