Go 4th with Faith!

Hello Everyone,

This week was great! On Tuesday we jumped in the car and headed to Virginia for a meeting. The meeting went well and I learned a ton! On the way home we stopped at the state border and I took a picture of me pointing at both state signs. I thought it was pretty neat because it's both of the states that our mission covers!
On Friday we had Zone Meeting. That was good! We all learned how to better introduce the Book of Mormon and two of the missionaries in our Zone were heading home, so they gave their departing testimonies. The Spirit was strong and we were all uplifted.
One of our investigators, is really progressing towards baptism! He came to Church on Sunday and enjoyed it. We're excited for him!
July 4th was really fun! We attended a parade with some of our investigators in a small town called River Bend. It was great! Our ward mission leader fed us a delicious dinner and later took us out to the fireworks!
I've been trying to rely more on the Lord recently and I was in The Book of Mormon when my eyes caught a couple verses in Alma 37.
"36 Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.

37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day."
We will get so much further in this life and in eternity if we trust in and rely on God. I invite you to look unto Him always. He is waiting to help, uplift, and strengthen you. His hand is always there.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
