We said goodbye to Sister Danso from South Africa this week. She joined us in December from Temple Square and will return and finish her mission there. She has been an outstanding representative of Jesus Christ in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh mission serving in n State College. We wish her well!
The same day we welcomed two new temple square sisters to the PPM!
Sister O'Reilly and Sister Nevil will be with us for 3 months.
Sister O'Reilly will serve with Sister Kwasney in Pittsburgh
Sister Nevil will serve with Sister Crisp in Chambersburg
Throughout the PPM we are joining missions throughout the world inviting all who will hear to follow our Savior Jesus Christ and find new life. Through the Easter season (and anytime of the year) we invite others to discover how by looking at FollowHim.mormon.org
The Shrewsberry district in York PA found a creative way of sharing this message. They played the video provided by the church out on a busy Square in the city of York. They passed out fliers inviting people to a fireside they have organized to celebrate believing in Jesus Christ.
"Now this is the commandment: Repent, all the ends of the earth, and come unto me and be baptized in my name, that ye may be sanctified by the reception of the Holy Ghost, that if ye endure to the end ye may stand spotless before me at the last day." -3 Nephi 27:20
"This is what the Lord has called you, His sons and daughters, to do! You are not called to preach what is politically correct or personally comfortable. You are not called to invite people to join a social club whose rules are made by its members. You are called to testify of Jesus Christ and to invite people to do what He has required to come unto Him and walk the path He has defined by His doctrine to reach exaltation in the celestial kingdom."
"He is the teacher, the testifier, and He is the influence to help a heart to change."
"He is the third member of the Godhead who has the responsibility to testify, to teach, to comfort, and to purify."
What is our role in helping others in their conversion to Jesus Christ?
"To be a worthy vessel that as a baptized member, and as a set apart servant of the Lord, is entitled to the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. Therefore, as you are clean and worthy and valiant in doing your work, you bring that Spirit with you into the teaching setting."
"This is about a mighty change of heart that can only come through the influence of the Holy Ghost. We are the Lord’s agents to help that Spirit come into the lives of people, to help them learn how to invite it into their hearts"
