Farewell! November 2015

May you be like Ammon . . .

ALMA Chapter 26

1 And now, these are the words of Ammon to his brethren, which say thus: My brothers and my brethren, behold I say unto you, how great reason have we to rejoice; for could we have supposed when we started from the land of Zarahemla that God would have granted unto us such great blessings?

2 And now, I ask, what great blessings has he bestowed upon us? Can ye tell?

3 Behold, I answer for you; for our brethren, the Lamanites, were in darkness, yea, even in the darkest abyss, but behold, how many of them are brought to behold the marvelous light of God! And this is the blessing which hath been bestowed upon us, that we have been made instruments in the hands of God to bring about this great work . . .

Elder Crook, Elder Lindford and Sister Ludwig

MLC November 2015

"Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed."
                                                                                                  D&C 123:17

Great training by the assistants Elder Gates and Elder Bryant:  #stressfree3
   To ensure that we are worshipping and making the Sabbath the Lord's, missionaries are blessed as we work with investigators if we will 1. Include members   2. Invite investigators to church   3.  Work closely with ward mission leaders

More insights shared . . .
    God gave us an "inquiring" mind.  Each of us have questions.  Acknowledge your questions as you fan the flames of your faith.  Elder Holland instructs us to hope on, and don't forget what we do know as we search for the answers.  

Find a box and set your questions aside and continue on in faith.  Answers will come!
"Doubt your doubts, not your faith!"  -Elder Uchdorf 

Be careful where you search for the truth.  There are many sources that tell us a portion of the truth and take things out of context.  If we focus on those kinds of answers we can get sidetracked and confused!
