It has been SUCH a fun week! Our investigators are doing so well and it is so fun to watch them start to understand and find a love for the Gospel. Finding and Teaching people about the gospel is one of the most rewarding things you can ever do in your life.. Believe me!! We are teaching the CUTEST girl that is in university, she is 20 years old. Never been to church or anything like it in her entire life walked into her first church building this week for our Sunday service. It was so amazing to see the light in her eyes and the way she took in EVERYTHING that was said. It really allowed me to rethink how I feel or how I prepare for church on Sunday! The sacrament is the most important part of our church experience, yet for some of us (me especially), the sacrament is usually the point where we are the most distracted. Once the bread and water is passed we go back to our technology, We are planning out the week, and thinking about the roast at home waiting to be eaten. Elder Bednar said: The ordinance of the sacrament is a holy and repeated invitation to repent sincerely and to be renewed spiritually. The act of partaking of the sacrament, in and of itself, does not remit sins. But as we prepare conscientiously and participate in this holy ordinance with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then the promise is that we may always have the Spirit of the Lord to be with us. And by the sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost as our constant companion, we can always retain a remission of our sins.
My hope and prayer is that you will all remember the importance of the sacrament and the purpose of our Sunday church worship. Just by simply partaking of the sacrament, we do not experience the sanctifying cleanse that the Lord Jesus Christ has to offer us. It is simply an invitation for us to repent always and remember our covenants made at baptism. I Love all of you and wish you the best!!
