Enduring To The end

Date: October 17, 2011
Area: Cauayan City Branch 2 - Assistant to the President
Companion: Elder Katao

 

Thursday we were with President at Cheers Mart in Santiago. He got a phone call from Elder Nielson in the Area Presidency saying they were coming down October 14th to split the Santiago stake into 2 stakes. President offered to help with some transportation and room accommodations.

When he hung up we were wondering when was the 14th? We soon realized it was the next day. When they called back later with finalized flight plans and President asked if they would be willing to hold a meeting with some of the closer zones in the mission. They said yes and so Friday we had a meeting with them.

Saturday they interviewed people in Santiago and presided over several meetings there. Sunday was stake conference where they announced the new stake and stake president in Santiago.

When we asked Elder Ardern how he met Sister Ardern Elder Nielson told us that Elder Ardern has an identical twin brother and that it was by accident. Elder Ardern said he and his brother would play tricks on their dates.

The big thing they stressed was enduring to the end or enduring to the END(owment). This work is true. Jesus Christ lives and called Joseph Smith to be his prophet. The Book of Mormon is the Word of God. Thomas S. Monson is God's living Prophet on the earth today.

Love you all. Have a great week.
