Hope every one had a great 4th! We had an awesome one here…spent it at a member who is rollin' in it so that was a blast. They are the nicest people. Had a great one, but a slow one. We roll like that some times.
Had a really good lesson this week with Hayden! We plan to set him with a date this Thursday so pray pray pray! He keeps on using the word "Research" when talking about how he will come to know it:/ If you have ever served you know why that worries us! We just stressed Prayer, the BOM hard! He seemed to understand, and the spirit was strong. We hope he felt it!
Got asked by ANOTHER woman if we wanted to join a "Sex and Drug Party" tonight. That was whack. Man this world is evil. And scary. But it's okay cause Athletes Adjust right?!;)
Was reading in Ether 12 again and got sooooo much on Faith! We must have a "Paradigm of Faith" is what I like to call it. If not, no "real power" will be obtained.
President and Sister are awesome. I love his vision. He is focusing so much on "us". 2 Nephi 2:30. the "good part.”
30 I have spoken these few words unto you all, my sons, in the last days of my probation; and I have chosen the good part, according to the words of the prophet. And I have none other object save it be the everlasting welfare of your souls. Amen.
He is so concerned about us and about how we are doing. Not as much with Numbers and Baptisms etc. Their theme Scripture is that one. But also they are focusing on D&C 4:4. With the Sickle being the BOM. So Powerful. DISSECT THAT VERSE!
Thanks for sending pictures. I love getting them. I love the pics. It's soooooooo busy in a YSA ward. Especially this one.
3 Things President Felix taught:
Mom their is much I could tell you what your missionaries need to know.
It's not about you anymore....It's not about you anymore. The MTC is where you learn how to be a missionary. To do missionary things. The field is where you become one. Are they ready? The qualifications for the work: D&C 12:8. Don't just do missionary things. Be a Christlike missionary. They can memorize PMG, know every lesson, answer, and question to ask. But if they cannot find the courage to open their mouths all else fails. All they can do is invite. Every time you do, you have succeeded.
God Bless you all!
19 And there were many whose faith was so exceedingly strong, even before Christ came, who could not be kept from within the veil, but truly saw with their eyes the things which they had beheld with an eye of faith, and they were glad.
Love, Elder Judd
