Last One!

Hello Everyone!

This will be my last email to all of you. I can hardly believe that this time has come. I have loved serving the Lord and will continue serving Him forever.

This week went well! We had a couple exchanges, so it was fun to spend time with some of the Elders in our Zone. One of them was Elder Silas Wright from Idaho Falls. We stayed busy this week and taught many people.

One of our investigators almost dropped us this week. We went to the library to teach him, and one of the first things he told us is that he didn't want to meet with us anymore. We asked if we could share one last message about The Book of Mormon, leave it with him, and follow up in the future. He said we could. The Spirit was present as we testified of this beautiful book. He brought up a concern in his life and we directed him to a passage in The Book of Mormon that would help him. He loved it! We left him with many chapters he could read. There is power in The Book of Mormon. I know it's true.

I spoke in church yesterday. I will also be speaking this next week in Pocatello. I'd love to see you all there! I'm not quite sure what time, nor the address to the chapel, but I'll figure that out soon enough.
I conclude by quoting the Apostle, Paul. " I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:" (2 Timothy 4:7) So much of our life in this restored gospel comes back to enduring to the end. Once we receive and gain a spiritual witness that this is true, we must endure. We must press on. I testify that Jesus Christ lives. He desires to help us on this path and His doctrine has been set forth. We "know the very points of his doctrine, that [we] may know how to come unto him and be saved." (1 Nephi 15:14)

With Love,
Elder Rogers
