If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God

Fine Afternoon to you all!

Well this week was a great one here in Nkawkaw. We are really doing a lot of teaching, a TON of service, and having a great time spreading
Christmas cheer, unfortunately it doesnt feel to Christmasy with it being like 110+ each day, and no Christmas music outside, but Christmas is in our apartment that is for sure, we are having  a blast.

We had some progress this week with a few people we are teaching, unfortunately it wasnt any of the people I mentioned last week, but this week we have been serving and teaching a sister, St (another St) who is the wife of one of our members here, and she is Jehovah's Witness, and she really has about infinity questions about the Church, but we are trying to just teach her simple truths, and we invited her to come to Church again and to pray about all the things that we have been teaching her, and well, she showed up yesterday and really felt good about Church. So things are looking up with her.

The main thing that i got this week was some strength in my testimony. And that strength came in the Restoration, and the first vision. Each time  I teach and testify of that amazing and unforgettable event, I gain a better, and deeper understanding of why Joseph Smith went to pray that day, i understand more why Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ HAD to both come to visit Joseph Smith.  And i KNOW that this event happened the way Joseph Smith said it did, he really saw a pillar of light, and the Father and the Son really did appear to the young boy. I know that this Church is true, because it has the same foundation as the Church of Jesus Christ in His life, (see Ephesians 2:20 ; Eph ch4 and 1 Corinthians 3:11) Plus i know its the true Church, more importantly and more powerfully, because I have prayed to know for myself, and I have received a strong witness from the Holy Ghost that its true. I know to the point that i have no doubts, i have nothing that could make me deny it, and i know that whoever really truly prays about this, they can know just as i do, and as Joseph Smith did,

Just as he read James 1:5, i also encourage you that with anything in your lives this scripture in James will help you, ''if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.''

I love you all and hope that you continue to #LightTheWorld with your service and Christ-like love that you show to others.

Love Elder Porritt
