New Letter 04/26- Hard Times

HI MOM!!miss you so much! i wish you were here these last few days it's been pretty rough here, I m not getting along with the other elders too well, I m so used to having a best friend like, Mark, Travis, Jackson, Tre and more that these guys are so different and very judgmental :( but today has been good I went and did endowments this morning which was awesome!!Always invites the spirit!We had an apostle come and teach us!Richard G Scott, God sent him for me I know it, his whole topic was about treating your companion with love and not judging and stuff like that which I think was a blessing cause they have been giving me a rough time so them hearing that talk changed the atmosphere. We got some new zone leaders who act like Conor's age, it's seriously a joke that they were called to be leaders of the servants of God, but oh well., my favorite scripture is
MORONI 10:3-5
3"Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.

4And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

5And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things....
Probably one of the most powerful scriptures I have read that applies to all!I love you and miss you so much you guys have no idea .I m sending a ton of letters today.
Love you!


  1. What a beautiful scripture RJ! Thanks for sharing... About people being judgemental, just think that the church is a big hospital and we all have sickeness that need to be healed. Some have the sickness of judging. Pray for them, that they may learn from the Savior about charity, that never judges but is pure love. I'm really enjoying reading your letters. What a wonderful man you are. Love ya, titia Tati.

  2. Dear RJ,
    Every time we are doing the Lord's work, Satan gets mad. He sends a herd of his servants to block and sabotage the work of God, sometimes using those less mature or less sensitive to the Spirit to help him. Tribulation is an important part of growing and of life. They make us so much stronger! Be patient, my dear nephew. Your companions are young like you and maturity comes at different stages for everyone. The Lord is paying attention on you and your work. Do your best, no matter what happens, and He will make it up to you for everything you go through while at His service. It is worth it!

    You are in our prayers always!
    your aunt Luiza, from São Paulo, Brazil.
