God is Love

Hello Everyone!

This week was inspirational! Early on in the week we found some new investigators, so that was exciting! They both seem pretty interested, so we will see how it goes. One of them expressed how much she wanted to change her life for the better. The Spirit was present as we testified that the restored gospel is exactly what she needs.

On Friday, our mission president and his wife came down to North Carolina for a Specialized Training. It was wonderful! We practiced teaching and learned much about teaching together as a companionship.

The next day, Saturday, was the first session of Stake Conference that we went to. A returning less-active family drove us. They are the best! And the meeting was full of the Spirit. Our mission president, his wife, and some Stake leaders spoke and brought such an amazing feeling into the room.
On Sunday, a less-active member that we've been working with came to Stake Conference! The meeting was wonderful and we learned a lot!

One thing that stuck out to me this weekend was the power of love. President Baker really emphasized this. In 1 John 4:7-9 it reads, 
"7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him."

I know that God loves each of us. I know that His Beloved Son loves each of us. No matter what. But when we follow Them and show our love for Them, we can feel Their love so much more clearly. As we live this gospel, our love for God and those around us will continually increase. Think of how you can show greater love. I promise that as you do, you will feel His love. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

I love you all! (And not just because I talked about love in this email!) Have a wonderful week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers

P.S. We got some hearts from the Young Women in our ward for Valentine's Day!
