26 And after that he came men also were saved by faith in his name; and by faith, they become the sons of God. And as surely as Christ liveth he spake these words unto our fathers, saying: 
Whatsoever thing ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is good, in faith believing that ye shall receive, behold, it shall be done unto you.  

33 And Christ hath said: If ye will have faith in me ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me.

Moroni 7:26,33
"We teach Repentance and  
Baptize Converts!"

Elder Andersen  focused on repentance.

“Repentance means to change, to return to God, to think more of Him, trust Him, and obey His commandments. Of course it involves the Word of Wisdom, going to church, and reading the scriptures. But repentance means a change of attitude, a beginning of a mighty ‘change [of] heart.’ One of the significant challenges of our day is that many people you teach do not understand why it is necessary to repent and do not know how to repent. You must guide them.”

Repentance, he added, is critical to true conversion.

“Unless we help those we teach to get on their knees and learn how to pray, personally, with real intent, even when we are not with them, they may not feel the need to change or the effect of this repentance. Kneel down with those you teach. We teach repentance and baptize converts.”

Be the Vessel.. The Instrument! of Change by feeling and using the Holy Ghost.

We cannot drive the Holy Ghost into the hearts of these people. We can deliver it unto them... in such a way that we help them to discover the source of these new feelings for themselves. This must be a personal discovery!


New Video!
This 4 minute video is very instructive. Study and ponder how you will follow this counsel.

Sister Golding and Cooper   TIE


Garfield_Runyan.mp4
11.6 MB


These videos were all very close... The major determining factor on why Elder Garfield and Runyan won was that they really clearly explained the 3 points in the last paragraph of the Introduction.. This part is ..."The why is it important for you section"... They carefully explained each single point. It was simple and very clear...  Everyone else did read this, but did not make it clear. If you are a new investigator... You will most likely not understand the significance of this paragraph without careful tutoring.

GREAT WORK and Congratulations to all who participated.

Thank you for your dedication and hard work.
The Savior is watching over us.

                                               Alright so we had some pretty cool stuff happen this week. We had like a few people that we were positive were going to come to church this last week. They were some newer people we have been trying to work with and also our progressing investigator but none of them showed up. During the opening prayer in sacrament meeting, I had my head down and this guy walks through the doors and sits down by me. When the prayer was over, it was just like the coolest guy ever this Chilean in like his 40s and he said he found the Book of Mormon and had been reading a whole bunch of it so he came to church. I could tell he loved the sacrament meeting too, oh man it was like one of the best sacrament meetings here in west New York. They had really good talks on unity, and our members Talked about family unity and ward unity. He was super interested in all the scriptures. He left after a little bit of gospel principles but he is ssolid! THEN, an Ecuadorean lady came in during third hour and was super interested to learn. It's super good to see God still sees our efforts and blesses us 
     


Miracles happen every day here in Jersey.



The Lord is in the details.
