Sunday

I have been re-listening to General Conference this morning. I know sometimes that some people that are not members of the LDS Chirch can become irritated or annoyed by our Wonderful Loving Missionaries. I think sometimes they think we are trying to tally up member count in our world wide church. As members we know how important missionary work is. I know what a blessing it is. What an opportunity it is in our world... But I love this quote by President Russel M. Nelson ... This is why we have Mormon Missionaries! It really is! (Mormon Missionaries A.K.A Elders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who selflessly dedicate (typically) two years away from all their family and friends, in a whole different part of the world or country ... to serve a Church mission. Missionaries give every minute of that time to the church to do God's work. They put their lives on hold to do the Lord's errands. They do many selfless works and also give their whole time to help spread and teach the word of God and his Son Jesus Christ and our Church. They teach of the Book of Mormon And if desired with permission, they baptize new members.) Happy Sabbath, may you feel the Savior love for you, peace on your souls, and happiness in your hearts!-Chelle                                           President Russel M. Nelson's talk Quote: "That is why our missionaries leave their homes to preach His gospel. Their goal is not to increase the number of Church members. Rather, our missionaries teach and baptize10to bring joy to the people of the world!11"         https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2016/10/joy-and-spiritual-survival?lang=eng
