Pioneer Day Fun!

Hello Everyone!

This week was fantastic! On Tuesday I went to Morehead City for an exchange with the Elders down there. I had the opportunity to bear a simple testimony in Spanish, so that was neat! We also had a mini missionary with us this week from the Woodington ward. He did an amazing job! We're excited to find out in a few weeks where he'll be going on his real mission!

Our investigator that was baptized last week received the Aaronic Priesthood yesterday and he's doing really well! Our 9 year old investigator, also came to church so that was good. The Ward had a Pioneer Day Activity on Saturday, and it was quite enjoyable! They had taffy pulling, an egg tossing contest, a watermelon eating contest, and much more! It was great! Elder Egbert, our investigators, and I all joined in the watermelon contest! It was a race to see who could eat two slices the fastest. I got 1st place and managed to keep the juice off of my shirt!

This week I was touched by a verse that I read in Alma 5. It's verse 38 and it says, "Behold, I say unto you, that the good shepherd doth call you; yea, and in his own name he doth call you, which is the name of Christ; and if ye will not hearken unto the voice of the good shepherd, to the name by which ye are called, behold, ye are not the sheep of the good shepherd." Jesus Christ is calling each of us. As we listen to his voice and follow him, we distinguish ourselves as His sheep. I invite each of you to consider what things the Savior would have you do and then do them. He is calling. We just need to listen. I know He loves us, and I know He is there.
Have a wonderful week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
