SNOW!!! But Not That Much.

Hello Everyone!

This week was wonderful! It started out on Monday evening. The Lord has just been blessing us this week. We went from lesson to lesson that night and the Spirit was powerful in each. On Wednesday we had a broadcast to all of the missionaries in the world. It was inspiring! We heard from several of the Apostles and leadership of the Church. One topic they addressed was always having the Savior on our lips. Always declaring His name. This is something we should do as missionaries, but also throughout our lives. One way of remembering Him always is talking about Him frequently.

Yesterday church was canceled. We had had some snow on Saturday and so they canceled church. It's different here than it is back West. Snow is a big deal! So that was pretty sad, but we were able to teach many people, and it was still a wonderful day! Some of those we taught yesterday were people we had tried to teach before, but they wouldn't let us. We had some great lessons as we testified of Christ and His infinite Atonement.

In my Book of Mormon study this week I read several chapters in Ether. One verse that really stuck out to me was in chapter 6 verse 17. It reads, "And they were taught to walk humbly before the Lord; and they were also taught from on high." This verse teaches so many powerful principles. First, they were taught to walk humbly. It didn't just happen. It is not our natural way of walking. Pride so often encompasses our steps. But as they walked humbly, they were taught from on high. Think of your life and the decisions that you make. Do you rely upon God to lead you? I know that as we rely upon God, choosing to take steps in line with His will, He will truly teach us from on high. Joyous is the path that God has laid before us. May we all walk in the steps of Christ.

I love each of you! Have a wonderful week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
