Go Forth With Faith

"Go forth with faith to tell the world of Jesus Christ, the Lord.  Bear witness He is God's own Son;  Proclaim His wondrous word.  Go forth with hope and courage strong to spread the word abroad.  That people of all nations are children of our God."

Entering in at the Gate

Julia Dixon was baptized on Aug 18, 2015.  The Book Of Mormon played an important role in her conversion.  We wish her the very best as she goes off to school!
Elder Gates, Sister Johnson, Julia Dixon, President Johnson and Elder Birrell.

"If you are struggling, confused, or spiritually lost, I urge you to do the thing I KNOW WILL GET YOU BACK ON TRACK.  Begin again to prayerfully study the Book of Mormon and live its teachings every day, every day, every day!  I testify of the profound power in the Book of Mormon that will change your life and strengthen your resolve to follow Christ.  The Holy Ghost will change your heart and help you see 'things as they really are' (Jacob 4:13)."
                                                                   Elder Kevin W. Pearson of the Seventy
