Hope all is well and that the New Year resolutions are off to a great start. Sorry for the short one today but we are low on time.
Elder Renlund of the quorum of the 12 apostles came to visit our mission! And what an amazing experience that was. That makes 3 apostles in 17 months. Such a blessing to hear something from one who is a "Special Witness" of the Lord Jesus Christ. His testimony is still ringing in my ears and heart. We were also able to hear about our beloved prophet who passed away. The priesthood is still has the keys necessary to hasten the work of salvation.
We picked up a new Investigator named Emma who is 15! She has been coming to church for several weeks but was unable to be taught due to her mom, who refused to sign permission that enabled her to be taught. But with hard work, prayer, and the grace of God she gave permission for her Emma to be taught! We taught her the Restoration on Saturday and it was so good. The Young Woman are so solid in this ward and are so good at fellowshipping. Please pray for her mom that as we continue to meet that her heart will continue to soften. We will be going thru her mother to hopefully meet with her.
God lives and he loves his children. Through the merits, mercy and Grace of his divine son that love is manifested. Jesus Christ lives. And he is coming!
Love, Elder Judd
