September 10, 2012

Hello everyone,

This letter is to the members of the Green Valley Ward, and to all the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

I challenge all of you to read and know by heart the Ward Mission Plan. It is the duty of every member to be a missionary.
"There is neither man nor woman in this Church who is not on a mission. That mission will last as long as they live, and it is to do good, to promote righteousness, to teach the principals of truth, and to prevail upon themselves and everybody around them to live those principles that they may obtain eternal life."    President Brigham Young.
It is up to you to do the missionary work.  The full time missionaries are here to help you fulfill your missionary work.

Things for you to do:
·         Pray to be able to find the people the Lord has prepared.
·         Don’t be afraid to open your mouth and share what you know.
·         Serve those around you.
·         Invite neighbors and friends to family home evening and church.
Read Alma 16: 16-17 as a family and discuss how you can share the gospel with someone.
When we were baptized, we made covenants to represent Jesus Christ and to always remember him. In the temple we have also made covenants. With baptism and temple covenants we have promised to dedicate our time and efforts to building up the Kingdom and to share the gospel and be an example to those who are in need of the truth.

I ask you now, Brothers and Sisters, to go up to the missionaries and ask them, “What can we do to help you?  What can we do to share the gospel with others?” You are essential to missionary work, every last one of you!  I love you all. The ward I am in lacks this enthusiasm and I have been losing sleep over it.  So, please, do your part to declare the Restored Gospel to the earth.  I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

The work is going well. That’s pretty much it.

Happy Birthday Katelyn!!!!
