September 7, 2014

Awesome week, we did baptisms with one of our friends for the first time at the temple. I'm grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who loves each of His children and will not deny blessings to any of us if we are willing to accept them. It is comforting to know that even those of our brothers and sisters who never got the chance to accept their Savior and make those necessary covenants with God will not be denied blessings of eternal life. It gives us an opportunity to participate in ordinances that not only open that gate for them but give us the opportunity to learn in God's temple and feel His spirit and love strongly. The feelings of the spirit are not easily forgotten and lead us to know what is truth. Once we have gained our own testimonies of this we are encouraged to "strengthen your brethren" (Luke 22:31-32) which is something we have focused on and discussed this week. We all have those people in our lives who have been a guide to us. It is now our turn to find 1 person to be a friend with. Be their guide. How would they feel at church? Sometimes as members we forget the powerful spirit that is in sacrament meeting. I have been reminded time and time again how strong and peaceful the spirit is at church. We overlook that power. Invite someone to feel it. Pray for strength to open your mouth. You will  receive guidance. And of course opposition will come because you will be opening doors for others to feel strongly of God's love, and that's the last thing Satan wants. Continue strengthening your own testimonies to the point you are converted. We are blessed this week to have a mission conference where President Bednar will speak to us. What a blessing it is to be here!!! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is so true. I love you all! have a great week :)
