Special Sabbath

Hello Everyone!

This week was splendid! On Tuesday we met our mini missionary. He's from Elizabeth City. We had a great week with him! On Wednesday we had our Mission Leadership Council meeting. Our focus for the month of August is using The Book of Mormon. There is power in this book of scripture. Our Zone Meeting went quite well also! The Spirit was present especially as 4 missionaries, myself included, bore their departing testimonies.

This Sunday was a special Sabbath. Not only because it was fast Sunday, but we had five investigators that came to church! And our mission president and his wife also came! And our Stake President. And what made it even better was the great Spirit in the fast and testimony meeting. A member, who is leaving on his mission to Pocatello on Tuesday, bore his testimony at the beginning. Later on I bore my testimony, centered on Christ. As I walked to sit back down, I saw my companion, Elder Nipko stand up to bear his testimony. Our convert also bore a powerful testimony on missionary work. President Weed and many others also bore their testimonies. I loved that meeting!

We had some great lessons on Sunday as well. The work is really starting to pick up! One of our investigators said she wants to be baptized and has been keeping all the commitments we've been leaving her! 

I began my departing testimony in Zone Meeting by echoing the words of Nephi, " I glory in plainness; I glory in truth; I glory in my Jesus, for he hath redeemed my soul" (2 Nephi 33:6) I know that He has reigned victorious over sin. All that we must do now is turn to Him.

I love you all! Have a great week!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
