I want to tell you about the people here in Greenville.
Greenville is a small town a little smaller than Centerville, just no mountains. It has an old style down-town street with window shops and things like that. But what I really want to talk about are people, and I haven't done that yet.
We found a family of three a weekish ago. They are Chris-30ish, Karah-30ish, and Cameron-10. They live just down the street from us and they just moved in. We found them on the street and they offered to help them move in. They aren't married, but we hope to change that. They are such a sweet couple. The first time we met them we gave them a Family Proclamation. Karah read it and even looked us up online. They are so sweet and we have a return appointment set up for this Wednesday. They have such open spirits. They don't know it yet, but you can see in their eyes that they are searching for truth. They want to find the peace of mind that only the gospel can bring.

We had a baptism this past Saturday!!! Nicky got baptized by her father in law this past Saturday, and it was amazing! She had been investigating the church for about 8 months before this day. She slowly gained a testimony, and is now such a blessing to the branch. She is doing her family history work already and is using her husband's profile on familysearch so that she can see if the temple work is done or not. How neat is that! She has such a sweet testimony of the gospel that stems from knowing that the Holy Ghost has guided her throughout her life. She is very sensitive to the spirit.
I want you to know that the reason I am out here is because of the people. The Children of God that come back to the fold make it all worth the work. Be a friend to the friendless, strengthen the feeble knees, lift up the hands that hang hopelessly down.

I know that Jesus is the Christ. He has redeemed this world and our souls from an awful state of misery and hell. He lives as the Son of God. He loves each and every one of us. Heavenly Father loves us. He selected us out of all the creations in the spirit to come down and be just lower than Him. Psalms 8:5 says that we are created just lower than the angels, but the footnote on angels goes to the greek translation meaning "God created us just less than the gods"
We each posses divine nature! We have the potential to become like God! Oh how great the goodness of God! This church is the only church upon the face of the earth that has the authority and knowledge to perform ordinances and make covenants necessary to return to live with Heavenly Father. Joseph Smith is the prophet that was called to restore the church to its fulness and glory. He was called by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to be the tool used for the restoration of the fulness of the gospel. This fulness is found today in the King James Bible and the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is Divinely inspired scripture, written in the past to cry from the dust to our generation. Its soul purpose is to testify of Christ. It is the truest book on the earth today.
Thomas S Monson is the Prophet today. Of this I have no doubt. He is inspired and has my full support.
I bear this witness in the name of Jesus The Christ,
Elder Colton F Price
