Pizza for Days!

Hello Everyone!

This week was good! As the subject suggests, we had quite our fair share of pizza this week! We had it Monday night, on Wednesday we got a pizza from some members that we put in our fridge, on Thursday we got another pizza, and on Friday we went to a Pizza Hut and got the buffet for lunch...Pizza-Riffic!!

On P-Day we played some basketball with the Zone Leaders, which was fun because we haven't played for a while! This week we were also able to assist one of the member families in a tough situation. Both the husband and the wife are disabled and can't walk and we had planned on seeing them on Wednesday around 4. We were just gonna stop by around then, but we decided we should contact them and see if that would work and when we did, they asked if we could come over right then. (Around Noon) We were able to go see them and give them some service and share a message! The husband, who is paralyzed from his chest down, later told us that we provided them with a mini-miracle that day. Sometimes even the littlest acts of service can provide a large amount of comfort to those around us.

Which reminds me of a lesson we had with a Less-Active member this week! King Benjamin tells us in Mosiah 2:17 that "When we are in the service of our fellow beings we are only in the service of our God." That is so true! Service is such a blessing, to those serving and to those being served! I invite each of you to offer one act of service to someone this week. I know that as we serve those around us, we are also serving God. He loves us and as we serve, we grow closer to Him and His Son. I love you all and hope everyone has a joyful week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
