Hello Everyone!

This week was great! On Friday, we went on exchanges with the Elders in Harkers Island. We always see so many miracles on exchanges! We set one of our investigators on a baptismal date, found three new investigators, and stayed quite busy! It was fun to be with Elder Nipko for a day.
The day before that was my year mark and we celebrated it with our ward mission leader and his family! They're the best! After a tasty dinner of hamburgers and fries, I chopped a tie in half!
Sacrament meeting was absolutely amazing! 3 less-active's came! And one of them we haven't even seen in several weeks! There is such a joy that enters my heart when I see these people at church! The Spirit of the Lord was very present during our meetings yesterday and overall, it was just a great day!
As I think of one thing that I've learned on my mission thus far, many principles and truths came to mind, but I think the most powerful one is the truth that through Christ's atonement and our agency, we can do all things. This truth has been shown unto me as I've struggled and grown and overcome weaknesses, all along with the Savior by my side. Ether 12:27 states: "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." I know this to be true. Trust in the Lord, and He will deliver you. His grace is sufficient.
I love each of you. Be your best and have a week full of faith!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
