Week #43

Dearest Family and Friends
It's been another wild one is Suriname in the Munder/Geyersvlijt area. This week was a growing week. Not much went out way this week but nevertheless it was a very very very good and rewarding week! We are grateful and excited for our three baptisms this transfer being Kalof on the 7th of May, Christopher on the 14th of May and Anna on the 23 of May. These three are literally the most prepared people I have ever met. We don't have to do anything, just have to show up and present the doctrine and they are just edified from it. It's so cool. All three came to church! That was for sure a highlight! This transfer one of my goals is to become more like Jesus Christ and have spent a lot of time studying the Sermon on the Mount which is said to be "The blueprint to achieving perfection in the life"
3 Nephi 12 also Matthew 5 I wanted to highlight these verses this week.
14 Verily, verily, I say unto you, I give unto you to be the light of this people. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
 15 Behold, do men light a candle‍ and put it under a bushel? Nay, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light to all that are in the house;
 16 Therefore let your light‍ so shine before this people, that they may see your good works and glorify‍ your Father who is in heaven.

We are commanded above all to be an example. All who have taken upon themselves the name of Christ have become representatives of him and his gospel. Like a logo that every company has whether it be Nissan, Apple or what have you. Your logo, the second you came out of the waters of baptism the second the words "Receive the Holy Ghost" were uttered your logo became that of Jesus Christ and the Savior himself is asking us to share the light with others and do not hide it. And I invite you all to reach out, let your light so shine in those who know nothing but darkness to those who are searching for the truth but have no idea where to find it, I testify that they are out there if we but only ask to be put in those situations and diligently following the promptings of the holy ghost that WILL come IF we ask! I love you all so very much :)
-Elder Lewis
