New Jersey Morristown Mission

And by so doing, the Lord God prepareth the way that the residue of men may have faith in Christ, that the Holy Ghost may have place in their hearts, according to the power thereof; and after this manner bringeth to pass the Father, the covenants which he hath made unto the children of men.

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

 Moroni 7:32-33


The Lord Asks for our Hearts.

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored to move throughout the world the knowledge of the life and teachings of the Savior. This great conference is being broadcast in 94 languages by satellite to 102 countries but is also available on the Internet to every nation where the Church is present. We have over 3,000 stakes. Our full-time missionary force exceeds 88,000, and total Church membership has passed 15 million. These numbers serve as evidence that the “stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands” continues to roll forth and will eventually fill “the whole earth” (D&C 65:2).

But no matter how large the organization of the Church becomes or how many millions of members join our ranks, no matter how many continents and countries our missionaries enter or how many different languages we speak, ......

the true success of the gospel of Jesus Christ will be measured by the spiritual strength of its individual members. We need the strength of conviction that is found in the heart of every loyal disciple of Christ.

A testimony of the hope of redemption is something which cannot be measured or counted. Jesus Christ is the source of that hope.

We seek to strengthen the testimonies of the young and old, the married and single. We need to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to men, women, and children, those of every race and nationality, the rich and the poor. We need the recent convert and those among our numbers descended from the pioneers. We need to seek out those who have strayed and assist them to return to the fold." Boyd K. Packer Oct 2014.

Each and every member of the Kingdom of God here in New Jersey has their own quest, to find the peace of the Savior written in their heart. Unless and until the true spirit of service and genuine giving penetrates our hearts, we will not see the strength and growth in the Kingdom that is very possible here. Learn to give and to serve our fellow man... Be in their homes... Love them and help them to come unto Christ. He is the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind. He Loves each of us perfectly.  Let us love Him back and help others to do the same by assisting in this great work. Be His Instrument. Receive His image in your countanance by forgetting self.


 We love you all President and Sister Taggart

5 this week! Thank you for your service and wonderful efforts.
Congratulations!


Miracles continue!

MIRACLES ARE HAPPENING..


This past week was awesome! We had an amazing miracle that I would like to share with you:
On Saturday night -after being juked all day- it was 8.30 so we decided to "knock one more door". We went to one of our investigator's house and he wasn't there, so we decided to go home and do some phone time or something, but when we were coming out of the house, we saw a man sitting on the stairs so we started talking with him and he told us that he was looking for a church, and he even said "when your investigator is not here, please, come teach me". We immediately set another appointment with him for Monday and on Monday we visited him and he said that he KNEW that what we were teaching him was the truth! I am so excited for him! He is amazing
Miracles happen when you use your time wisely and exercise your faith. He was a miracle of "knocking the last door"  



The Lord continues to bless New Jersey. 
Thank you for your dedication and hard work.
The Lord is watching over us.
