Week 27

Dear all,

It is true that prophet is a messenger from God but people often mistakenly thought that we believe that prophet will replace God which is not true. Prophet will never replace God but work as an instrument of God to help guide us in these latter days. In the Old Testament, New Testament and Book of Mormon, God has repeatedly called prophet to guide us so that we will not fall away. Without prophet, we will not receive revelation from God and we will not have Word of Wisdom, Law of Chastity and other commandments that help improve our lifestyle and raise our standard. 

Another tricky question, people often think that LDS do not believe in Bible. In Article of Faith, it says that LDS believe the bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly, we also believe the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Book of Mormon will never replace Bible but Book of Mormon work side by side with Bible to help us to have a better understanding. We also believe that Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and by reading it, one will have a better understanding of the teaching of Christ and this apply to reading Bible as well. 

As for trinity, we believe that there is Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and Holy Ghost. Some believe that they are one but we believe in otherwise. In John 3:16, it says that "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Isn't it obvious enough that God send Jesus Christ to earth? So, now you know. You can find more about our beliefs by reading Article of Faith which will help you a lot when people question you sometime. Now, work on your own questions and find your own answers and share it with me. This sentence about working on your own question is for me. Hahaha! He previously gave me 3 questions to answer so now he wants me to ask him questions. LOLX. But everyone is welcome to ask him.

The past week was the Chapel Open House and also Dedication for the Chapel. It is really an honor to be able to participate in an Open House and also listening to dedicatory prayer. I have never attended any in my life and this is gonna be a wonderful experience for me. The past few weeks, missionaries from Branch 1 and missionaries from Branch 2 which is us have a discussion of combining the branch because of the much challenges that the branch is struggling on and we have asked President Mains about it. He talked to all the missionaries in Sibu Zone and asked us to continue to have faith and he will put another set of missionaries in Sibu temporary. And we were asked to work on less active members and watch for miracles. Moment after that, Elder Brooks and me were discussing the people that we should work on and we name our operation Less Active Rescue Mission. This is gonna be the most interesting moment in my life to be able to work on miracles. 

This is all I have for the past week. I hope that all my families, friends and everyone are doing well all around the world. Good luck everyone and work for the best! 

Regards,
Elder Tan
