An Especial Witness

What a great blessing to the PPM to have Elder and Sister Stanfill come for a mission tour.  We received inspired and very timely training from both of them.  Sister Stanfill taught the power of charity, commitment, unity, studying, prayer and hard work.
    "On the ship of the gospel, there are no passengers, we are all crew members"
      "This is my work and my glory . . ."
      Salvation is not cheap therefore missionary work is not easy.
Elder Stanfill taught us that we are epistles of the Lord from Elder Nelson's talk (epistle = a formal teaching instrument known and read of all men).  

"Christ is the living water, bread of life and light of the world.  These are essential to life.  If we accept these things - The best way to show him we accept is to do our best!"

  1. AHH! Makes my heart happy to see the Stanfills and the Johnsons together! I was blessed to serve with them for 7 1/2 months in their stake. They were very involved with the missionaries and hosted me in their home on a return visit. They impacted my mission and life for good! I'm glad to have stumbled upon this blog, Rosie! I love seeing you and your missionaries! <3
