Be Loving and Purify our hearts. This is what Jesus DID.
Obedience brings forth the blessings of Heaven.
The Jeppsons left a legacy of
President and Sister Jeppson left us with a mission that is valiant and exactly obedient. We are so thankful to them for all they have done here. Because of this we are seeing the blessings that come as a result of that comittiment. The Lord is opening the windows of Heaven with many of you faithful missionaries who are still moving upward and onward toward your course to the Fathers Kingdom. We are so deeply impressed with your talents and your works!
Change however is inevitable. It is constant and never ceasing. We can either use it as a stepping stone to personal growth or we can resist and be trapped by our inabitity to adapt. Keep the Legacy alive and move forward. Continue to honor our Savior by your works and the way you live. Fall is in the air. Changes are coming. The Lord is hastening His work. We are His front line soilders who are very fortunate to be here in the midst of it all. WOW!
Thank you for your outstanding desire and energy. Thank you for your dedication and your obedience. The promised blessings are limitless. There is no end to what God can do.
"Desire denotes a real longing or craving. Hence righteous desires are much more than passive preferences or fleeting feelings. Of course our genes, circumstances, and environments matter very much, and they shape us significantly. Yet there remains an inner zone in which we are sovereign, unless we abdicate. In this zone lies the essence of our individuality and our personal accountability.
Therefore, what we insistently desire, over time, is what we will eventually become and what we will receive in eternity. “For I [said the Lord] will judge all men according to their works, according to the desire of their hearts” (D&C 137:9; see also Jer. 17:10). Alma said, “I know that [God] granteth unto men according to their desire, … I know that he allotteth unto men … according to their wills” (Alma 29:4). To reach this equitable end, God’s canopy of mercy is stretched out, including “all that shall die henceforth without a knowledge of [the gospel], who would have received it with all their hearts, shall be heirs of that kingdom;"
I the Lord am BOUND when you do what I say.
Love you all.
We Say Goodbye tomorrow to many amazing missionaries who we love & adore.
Thank you for your service and for your consecration.
