I hope you are having a great week so far! I've been a little crazy, busy this week. I'm trying to catch up on everything I've missed! We said goodbye to Elder Beus on Tuesday night. He was transferred to a new area in Oklahoma and will do a wonderful job sharing the gospel there, too. I met Elder Davis' new companion, Elder Reynolds, who is from Idaho, yesterday. You can click HERE to meet the missionaries in your part of the country or world!
Here is a picture we took on Tuesday night. One of my daughters had "Pink Out" day in school so that is why she is so PINK! LOL!
(We were supposed to make a crazy face but I never do!)
Last Saturday night I also took some pictures of us Sisters as we gathered at a member of the church's house to watch the General Relief Society Broadcast. If you would like to watch it you can click HERE!
I am so grateful to be a part of such a large women's organization called the Relief Society. I have been the Relief Society President in my ward for almost 16 months now. In our church we have what's called Lay Ministry where we are "called" to serve in difference positions through our church leadership. They pray and ask who should serve where. Nobody applies for a calling or asks to do something specific. (Click HERE to learn more about Lay Ministry.) I am only the Relief Society President right now because that is where the Lord knows I will grow and learn. It is true! I have grown so much in the last year and love every single sister I get to serve.
Today we are reading more about Jesus Christ's ministry to the Nephites. These are both great chapters to study.
3 Nephi 19:10-13
3 Nephi 19:25
And it came to pass that Jesus blessed them as they did pray unto him; and his countenance did smile upon them, and the light of his countenance did shine upon them, and behold they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness, yea, even there could be nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof.
I love that verse. I can only imagine what that was like. What a blessing to be able to see my savior face to face.
3 Nephi 19:35
And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of praying he came again to the disciples, and said unto them: So great faith have I never seen among all the Jews; wherefore I could not show unto them so great miracles, because of their unbelief.
3 Nephi 20:1
And it came to pass that he commanded the multitude that they should cease to pray, and also his disciples. And he commanded them that they should not cease to pray in their hearts.
There is much more that I would have loved to share today but I have to log off. I hope you have a wonderful day!
