The Call To Rescue

We met with our Mission President last night to be trained on the "Rescue". We know that miracles can happen in an area and a Ward when everyone is missionary minded. There is a great new website on the church site. It is called Leadership Training Library. Since the church has grown into an international church, it is putting more and more material to train leaders online. It has a section for the Mission Leader too. We are so grateful for the hand of the Lord in all things in our lives.

Fasting For A Purpose

Our Ward is fasting for a purpose. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful Ward who are missionary minded. We have a strong leadership base and so many willing to do the work of the Lord. Our fast and testimony meeting was very strong in the Spirit. Sister Carmack asked a visitor if she would accept an invitation to have the full-time missionaries come to her home and teach her and her family the missionary lessons. And she accepted! We are so thrilled. The member family she came to church with are strong members of the church. It is such a blessing to watch our prayers being answered and to know the power of prayer. We are so grateful for the atoning sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to have the opportunity to serve as missionaries and to answer the call to Rescue. We love you!

Our Beautiful Granddaughter
