The Sons of Mosiah...
2: ...had  searched the scriptures diligently, that they might know the word of God.

 But this is not all; they had given themselves to much prayer, and fasting; therefore they had the spirit of prophecy, and the spirit of revelation, and when they taught, they taught with  power and authority of God.
Alma 17:2-3

Oh  So Thankful 

God is Good!

God is Good all the Time.

In the summer of 2004 my son Sam and I went to Zambia to visit my Daughter Abi. She was serving with a non profit group called Mothers Without Borders, assisting  the people in a poor little village. The volunteers stayed in a small house on a rural farm where they attempted to grow corn and other vegetables to eat and sell... It was a labor of love among some very poor Africans. They also spent time tutoring and assisting these kids with their school work. Our goal was to help them with skills to become more self reliant.
We had two group leaders who took us everywhere and taught us all about how to help these people.

One of the sayings that the Africans and SHO SHO one of our leaders would say at least 10 times a day was,


I am sure that I had heard that phrase before in my life. It was not a new phrase for me. But for some reason while we were there working with these people.... People who lived in grass huts with nothing but dirt floors, very little food and only the clothes on their backs, the phrase took on a whole new meaning. 
They always seemed to have a smile on their face and a happy countenance as they lived each day the best they knew how. The children were especially amazing. Each one had a light in their eyes and hope in their souls. As I thought about my time there with these delightful people I considered why they were happy.
The only plausible answer that I could come up with was.    
They were thankful ... They were appreciative for any assistance that was given. They expressed gratitude for the help and kindness that they received. They lived simple and did not know what they did not have.

Gratitude is a core value that will shape us. It is the key to the soul. It allows us to be receptive to the Holy Ghost. It changes us inside.

I am so thankful to my Father and His son who make life wonderful.
I am very grateful for an amazing wife and children who love the Lord and know to serve HIM... I am so thankful for you.  Oh how blessed I am.

Unlock the key this Thanksgiving and be grateful. 
Express thanks for our Savior and Our Father. They have given us everything.

Please know that we love you and are so grateful to all of you for the dedication and effort that you give as servants of the Lord. What an honor and a privilege it is to serve by your side. What an honor and a blessing it is to be a servant of the Lord.

Love YOU!!

7 this week   ... Congratulations.
The Prepared are coming in.

The Lord continues to bless New Jersey. 

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

One amazing miracle this week was we had contacted this man knocking doors and then we weren't able to to see him for awhile, but one day we were walking by and we saw him in a restaurant and we walked in and talked with him for a second and set an appointment for the following day. We couldn't find a team up, but then one of the members delivered and said they could come out with us. We go to the appointment and his there waiting there for us and doesn't want to do much small talk he wants to here about Jesus and our special message. Then he had a friend there also that joined in on the lesson. He has been going through many struggles in his life. We ended up talking about the Love of God and the member testified of the true message we have and how it has helped her life. The spirit was there. He then told us how when we first meet him he felt something different in his life. When we gave him the Book of Mormon and he read some of it he had the desire to stop drinking and hadn't drank for 8 days and doesn't have the desire to anymore. Literally its amazing what the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Atonement can do for people. 

Miracles happen every day here in Jersey.

The Lord is in the details.

The 4 minute message...
This is an awesome introduction to the Gospel given to all the Apostles and Mission Presidents by two Elders. WOW...

Leap of Faith .... Indiana Jones

 This is great for those who seem reluctant to make the Step into the Waters of Baptism.  Show this to your people and ask them to TRUST the Savior.
