Elder Hall and Elder Skidmore had a lot of work this week and a lot of success.
It’s been colder but that has pushed Elder Skidmore and I harder.
We’ve taught a lot this past week, and a lot of good people are
preparing to enter into the waters of baptism.
“I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of
the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. When the
light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory
defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake
unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other–This is
My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
11 O then, my beloved brethren, repent ye, and enter in at the strait
gate, and continue in the way which is narrow, until ye shall obtain
12 O be wise; what can I say more?
12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of
our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your
foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds,
yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his
mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to
drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the
rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation
whereon if men build they cannot fall.
Doctrine & Covenants 6
36 Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
37 Behold the wounds which pierced my side, and also the prints of the
nails in my hands and feet; be faithful, keep my commandments, and ye
shall inherit the kingdom of heaven. Amen.
Doctrine & Covenants 76
40 And this is the gospel, the glad tidings, which the voice out of
the heavens bore record unto us–
41 That he came into the world, even Jesus, to be crucified for the
world, and to bear the sins of the world, and to sanctify the world,
and to cleanse it from all unrighteousness;
42 That through him all might be saved whom the Father had put into
his power and made by him;
32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves
of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all
ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then
is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect
in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can
in nowise deny the power of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be
born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have

41 O then, my beloved brethren, come unto the Lord, the Holy One.
Remember that his paths are righteous. Behold, the way for man is
narrow, but it lieth in a straight course before him, and the keeper
of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant
there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he
cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.
7 ¶How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth
good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of
good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God
8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall
they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring
9 ¶Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem:
for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.

How has your week been? How is the teaching going? You shared some good stories last week. Thanks. I am glad you are so close to the Spirit, and that you are recognizing that God is guiding you. How has your testimony grown lately?
It’s been great. I get closer to God every day, especially when I come back completely exhausted and know I did my best that day. Like yesterday, yesterday was a good day, we taught 7 lessons and got 2 more people on date.
