The Elders had an ok week with some solid lessons and a baptismal date set for Simon.
Hello everyone! Happy February!
This past week was okay, Elder Iyip and I didn’t get in as many lessons as we wanted but the ones we did have were good! We only have a few investigators as of now who are some how serious. Simon has a baptismal date of February the 13th, hopefully we make it there!
On Tuesday we gathered and watched a worldwide broadcast to missionaries around the world. There are over 75 thousand missionaries (excluding senior couples) serving around the world at this moment. I’m glad that all of those young people have decided to come unto Christ and be blessed. And as full time missionaries they are helping others do the same. I know that the only way to true everlasting happiness and joy is through Christ, our Savior and Redeemer.
33 Behold, he sendeth an invitation unto all men, for the arms of mercy are extended towards them, and he saith: Repent, and I will receive you.
32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.
Savior, Redeemer of My Soul – My favorite hymn
Savior, Redeemer of my soul,
Whose mighty hand hath made me whole,
Whose wondrous pow’r hath raised me up
And filled with sweet my bitter cup!
What tongue my gratitude can tell,
O gracious God of Israel.
Never can I repay thee, Lord,
But I can love thee. Thy pure word,
Hath it not been my one delight,
My joy by day, my dream by night?
Then let my lips proclaim it still,
And all my life reflect thy will.
O’errule mine acts to serve thine ends.
Change frowning foes to smiling friends.
Chasten my soul till I shall be
In perfect harmony with thee.
Make me more worthy of thy love,
And fit me for the life above.
Hope you all have a great week! Love you all!
