August 2016 Farewell and Best Wishes

"And now, my beloved brethren, after ye have gotten into this strait and narrow path, I would ask if all is done?  Behold, I say unto you, Nay; for ye have not come thus far save it were by the word of Christ with unshaken faith in him, relying wholly upon the merits of him who is mighty to save.

Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father:  Ye shall have eternal life."             2 Nephi 31: 19-20

Many thanks for your devoted service!  Love and blessings as you return with honor!

Sister Wentzel served here in the PPM for three months from temple square.  She has gone to finish her mission in Salt Lake City and we are very grateful that we had the blessing of her service here.
