"Let Us Help You Move!"

Hello Everyone!

This week flew by! We've been staying busy here. On Monday we had a Zone Preparation day, so that was fun! And everything is lining up for the baptism on Saturday. They have both been interviewed. Their dad is a recent-convert of about 6 months, and he's going to baptize them! We're excited!

We were at an appointment that fell through on Saturday and a man was walking past us, so we started talking to him and sharing the gospel with him. He told us he was about to go help someone move and he didn't have time. So we asked if we could help and he let us! There were a bunch of people at the house already, but we got to help move tables and couches onto the U-Haul. It was great! Haha most of the time people won't let us help like that.

During my personal studies recently it has occurred to me the great importance of both 'heart' and 'mind'. And now both of those words (But especially heart) have been sticking out to me everywhere that I read in the scriptures. We learn from D&C 8:2 that " [God] will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart." So those are the two places the Spirit speaks to us. As I pondered this, I realized how important it is to purify our hearts and cleanse our minds. It's is so important! I know that as we do, we will be more aware of God's influence. He will more easily guide our paths and give us direction. I know He truly loves us and is always reaching out to us. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
I love you! Have a wonderful week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
