Hey there!
I hope all of you are doing well and that things are going well for you! For me it is always busy! On the 3rd of April of 2012 (a year ago) I was assigned to my field of labor by the Prophet President Thomas S. Monson. What a reassurance for me and for anyone else who has received a call to serve from the Lord was truly inspired of God to where I was to go. I am grateful for the opportunity that I have to be here with the British people and my chance to serve the Lord as a minister of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
So I hope that all of you have enjoyed listening to General Conference! I know I did! As a missionary, you get so much out of Conference and receive guidance from a loving Heavenly Father. One of the biggest themes of Conference for me were that 1) Satan will ALWAYS try to make us feel inadequate and 2) We must ALWAYS know our divine potential. The talk that hit home for me was President Utchdorf's talk in Priesthood. He talked about the 4 titles that Priesthood holders have. They are sons of God, disciples, healers of souls and heirs of the Kingdom of God. When he was talking something big stood out to me. He stated (and I paraphrase): "For those of you who feel unloved or inadequate I am sorry." He said it with great emotion. I truly felt that he was talking to me because I have felt these things in my life including the mission field. Another statement rang out to me as he went on: "Brethren, the adversary will always try to make us feel inadequate. Brethren, don't listen to him." I realized that I let Satan get the best of me at times. When I heard that talk I realized that the adversary can not budge my divine potential as a son of God and a brother of Jesus Christ. "Get thee hence Satan!" I am a son of God.
I testify that we are all sons and daughters of God and that we can become like He is someday: Perfect. I know that I am a son of God and that Jesus Christ is my Savior, Reedemer and friend! I know that we have living Prophets and Apostles who lead and guide The Church of Jesus Christ on Earth. I know that Satan is the world's greatest hater and always will be. Do not believe his lies. Always walk in the light which is Christ whom said: " I am the light and the life of the world". I share my testimony with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
Elder Terrence M. Taylor
