The elders had three baptisms this week. Now they are looking for others to teach now. And a reminder to turn to the Lord.
Elder Hall’s email:
Subject: The Lord Did Strengthen Them
This week was good. Our dear brother Douglas was baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. Also after church our younger sisters Cecilia and Priscilla were baptized. And because of that we have no one that is set for baptism now so Elder Schmanski and I will be working hard to find more people that are prepared to learn and even enter into a covenant with their God hopefully in October.
Something important to remember is that if we turn to the Lord our God he will help us in our trials but that does not mean he will take them away but in his infinite wisdom He might see fit to have us keep the burden but to give us the strength that we need to handle it.
15 And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord.
Hope that you all have a great week!
