All We Need Now is Some Farr's Ice Cream!

Hello Everyone!

This week was great! There was a lot that happened. On Wednesday we had our Mission Leadership Council meeting which prepared us for Zone Meeting on Friday. We are learning more about how we can work together with the members in our areas to help our investigators progress. Zone Meeting went really well! The Spirit was there and there was a lot of good participation.

Mother's Day was great! Skyping my family was fantastic! And a miracle came at church! There was a couple that walked in that was new, so we introduced ourselves. They looked like members, so I asked if they were visiting. One of them said that yes, they were. So then I asked if they were members. Nope. Haha at that point we realized what a great opportunity this was! We later learned that their son was a recent convert and their daughter-in-law (His wife) was a returning Less-Active. They've read a large portion of the Standard works! They stayed for all three hours of church and invited us over for dinner this Wednesday. And as if it couldn't get any better, they are next door neighbors to our High Priest Group leader! So we're thankful to the Lord for this miracle and are excited to see what comes!

This week I've been reading a little in the book of Acts. It's great! I really loved Acts 5:41-42. Peter and the Apostles teach of the Savior. "Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him."

I know that Jesus Christ truly is the only One who can bring means for repentance and forgiveness. And what a blessing that is! As we come unto Him and repent, He will truly forgive us. We will feel the peace of His grace. I testify that we will find the greatest joy in life by following the simple pattern of faith, repentance, and keeping our covenants. I know He lives. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Well I love you all! Have a marvelous week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers

P.S. We played some disc golf today. It was amazing! For those of you that are unaware, I used to always get some Farr's after playing disc golf. It was a wonderful tradition!
