This week was great! From Tuesday until Sunday we had a "mini-missionary" with us. The Stake is doing this program where youth spend several days with missionaries to learn more about what it's like. We had a great time with him! He was excited and did really well.
This Saturday was the Family Discovery Day in Kinston. We helped a couple people with their Family History and the event was a success! There were a lot of people there!
One of our investigators was interviewed this week for baptism, and he's ready! We're pretty excited for him! He'll be getting baptized this Saturday. We also found a member family who has a boy whom we will be teaching as well. He's 9 years old and the family came to church yesterday, so that was good!
This week I wish to emphasize the power to endure which is found in the Word of God. We must feast upon it daily if we desire to press forward. It is fairly clear in Helaman 3:29-30, " 29 Yea, we see that whosoever will may lay hold upon the word of God, which is quick and powerful, which shall divide asunder all the cunning and the snares and the wiles of the devil, and lead the man of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery which is prepared to engulf the wicked—
30 And land their souls, yea, their immortal souls, at the right hand of God in the kingdom of heaven, to sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and with Jacob, and with all our holy fathers, to go no more out." I promise you that as you study the scriptures daily, the Spirit of the Lord will abound in your life and you will endure all things.
I love you all! Have a fantastic week!
