Dear Family and Friends,
This week we got the privilege of having the mission department from Salt Lake City come out and train us! It was neat to see a little bit more of the big picture and be reminded of the importance of this work and to learn ways we can share the gospel better. That same day we were able to meet with our stake president and talk about missionary work in the stake with him. He was a convert when he was in his 20s and he said that he's still in touch with those missionaries today. Even though individually we play a small role, everyone's best efforts to live and share the gospel can make a huge impact.
I'm grateful for the simplicity of the gospel and for the power of the Book of Mormon. As I've been studying it everyday, I feel the power that it brings! I know it is true and contains the fullness of the gospel!
