Hey family,

It was a great week! I was able to go to San Salvador and see Elder Quentin L. Cook.
He talked alot about faith in Jesus Christ. He bore such a clear, powerful testimony of His existence. He told us, “I know He lives with full certainty. I know His voice.” We could all feel the spirit of his testimony very strongly. This experience reminded me of a few verses in Luke:
15 And it came to pass, that, while they acommuned together and reasoned, bJesus himself drew near, and went with them.

16 But their eyes were aholden that they should not know him.

It then continues…

27 And beginning at aMoses and all the bprophets, he cexpounded unto them in all the dscriptures the things concerning himself.

31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

32 And they said one to another, Did not our aheart bburn within us, while he ctalked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

This is how we all felt. As an apostle speaks, as we pay attention, and as we seek knowledge and have this “thirst for righteousness,” we will be able to feel the spirit. Imagine if all church talks were like that? Imagine if Sunday school teachers were able to teach with the same spirit, giving everyone desire to return and draw near unto God.

There is such power that a great gospel teacher can bring. If we are worthy, and if we study, the spirit will be with us and will help us bless everyone around us.

We also had a baptism this week. Her name is Catalina. She is a very powerful, powerful convert.

Well family, thank you for the help you`ve been sending.I love you all and I hope you`re doing well.

Love, Elder Jacobsen
