What a wonderful time of the year to reflect on the life of our savior. We recently helped give a presentation to our ward on the new video the church has put out called, BECAUE HE LIVES (Here's the link) http://www.mormon.org/easter ). As I was reflecting about the video I thought of the phrase, "Because he lives..... "and about the many wonderful truths and opportunities that we all have and will receive because of the fact that Christ lives today and guides His church. What a wonderful opportunity to be a part of this great work.
As Richard G. Scott has said, " He (President Hinckley) has borne witness that he is not the head of this Church. That head is our Lord and master, Jesus Christ the redeemer. He guides it. He has given his life that even in our weakness, we may overcome our mistakes through repentance and obedience to his gospel. Oh, what a favored people we are to have this light, this knowledge, these opportunities for happiness on earth and throughout the eternities. may we commit to share a knowledge of this magnificent work, personally or through missionaries, with our friends and neighbors that they may join this kingdom of God on earth, and receive the consummate, eternal blessings available to them."
If you haven't seen the video I would highly recommend it:)
Our investigators are doing really well, specifically Luke. It has been amazing to see the difference in his life and we teach more and more of the truths of the gospel. He recognizes the good and has a strong desire to follow it. We also have some great potential investigators. Especially this one Media Refferal who requested a Book of Mormon and when we showed up was so excited to see us and just told us of his desire to know more. He told us that He knew that he had truly come to know God and after coming to this knowledge he had called a T.V. christen number and had asked what to do next and they had said to go to church and read the scriptures but he feels that there is more to it than that. We are meeting with them this week and we are excited to see what is to come:)
Hope you all have a great week:)
