It Began in Weekly Planning

Hello Everyone!

This week was great! On Monday we had a Zone Preparation day. It was really fun to meet together with everyone and play some sports!

We saw a miracle this weekend. But it began during our weekly planning session. The Spirit was present as we planned, and a we received some revelation for a certain investigator we hadn't focused on recently. We were inspired to teach him in a particular member's home. So we took action and those plans took place on Saturday. We set him on a baptismal date, and he came to church. He's excited, and so are we! I am so grateful for little miracles like this.

Another of our investigators also came! And 3 or 4 Less-Active's we were hoping would come! It was wonderful! And our Bishop and Stake President both spoke since it was Ward Conference. What made it even better was that there was food afterwards! We a delicious Southern meal!

Recently I've been marking and trying to memorize several verses from the Book of Mormon. There are so many inspiring verses in there! I love it! One of them was from 2 Nephi 9:45. It reads, "O, my beloved brethren, turn away from your sins; shake off the chains of him that would bind you fast; come unto that God who is the rock of your salvation." It's just so simple. How grateful I am for a Savior who provides a path of deliverance. He is so loving. Let us turn from all of our sins and turn to God. I know that as we do, peace, joy, and happiness will enter our lives. We will have a great purpose and meaning behind our actions. I know that this gospel is true. And I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

I love you all! Have a wonderful week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
