But behold I say unto you that you must pray always and not faint; that ye must not perform anything unto the Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ , that he will consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul.
2 Nephi 32:9
We are so Thankful for You!
Obedience Brings Forth the
Blessings of Heaven!
Elder Bruce R. McConkie taught: “Faith is a gift of God bestowed as a reward for personal righteousness. It is always given when righteousness is present, and the greater the measure of obedience to God’s laws the greater will be the endowment of faith” (Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed., 264). If we desire more faith, It will come as we Obey. S.W.F.B.
Obedience: A consecrated nature will cause us to be obedient, not because we have to, but because we want to. Such a nature may cause us to change the music we listen to; it may cause some to be more positive in their speech, or more exacting in following the morning schedule or more diligent in their studies. Whatever it is, the consecrated missionary will read the white handbook with enthusiasm, anxious to obey and follow every rule with exactness, knowing that it is not a book of restraints, but a book of blessings. He will have an overarching, burning desire to do the Lord’s will, not his. Tad Callister talk.
THEN TRUST HIM. BELIEVE HE WILL LEAD YOU !!
God Lives ! The Atonement is Real! Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World.

“And we did observe to keep the judgments, and the statutes, and the commandments of the Lord in all things. …
“And the Lord was with us; and we did prosper exceedingly; for we did sow seed, and we did reap again in abundance. And we began to raise flocks, and herds, and animals of every kind.
“And it came to pass that we began to prosper exceedingly, and to multiply in the land.” (2 Ne. 5:10–11, 13.)
As Representatives of the Lord Jesus Christ...We are harvesting.....we are seeing the fruits of our labors.
Sister Taggart and I are so very thankful for all the work that you are doing. We are so thrilled with your efforts and the success that we are having as a mission. Your lives are being molded and sculpted into the sons and daughters that God wants you to become. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for being valiant and obedient. This is the most awesome mission on the planet.
We are Grateful For You!
You are the Miracle of this Mission.
Missions. Just about the best thing... EVER. (I'll say the best because I haven't tried hang-gliding or being married. But the mission is better).
I can't say exactly what I mean or how I feel--every time I try to describe it, I sound like an illiterate monkey with cotton balls in his mouth. All I can say is that the decision to serve a mission is the best I've made in my life--the hardest thing I've done--the most precious experience. Those serving/who have served know already. Look back on your missions with only the fondest of memories and greatest of joys, because it is the time in which we can FULLY consecrate ourselves to the Lord and be "an helpmeet" to His children, to "succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees." (D&C 81:5).
The privilege of feeling the Lord work through you is PRICELESS--INEFFABLE--PHENOMENAL. I want to live my whole life so that I may always feel so, and live under the influence of the Holy Ghost--He truly will never, EVER lead us astray.
One week left and almost done. Sister Thomas. Ukraine.
God gives us commandments for our benefit. They are instructions from a loving Father in Heaven to help us have happy lives. He also gives us agency, or the ability and opportunity to choose between good and evil.When we obey God, we follow the influence of the Spirit and choose to conform to His will. Obedience to the commandments brings us peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come. Obedience shows our love for God. Disobedience brings us sorrow.
Heavenly Father knows our weaknesses and is patient with us. He blesses us as we strive to obey His commandments.
He expects us to obey Him so He can bless us.
And He Will!
The Lord needs Priesthood Leadership to
Be Strong! Work with the members ...win their trust by who you are and what you do.
The Stakes and the District will all be training on this plan in order to go and Rescue.
Find those who are ready to come back.
Congratulations to all these new Members.
