This week was a bit slow, but we've been able to visit with a lot of the active Branch members. It's crazy how healthy some of them are!
We helped Sister Ballard trim one of her trees this week. She is over 80 years old, however still drives a car and uses a Samsung tablet to access the scriptures. I always enjoy visiting her because she's had a ton of experiences as well as a strong testimony of the Gospel.
We also have a member named Fred who just hit 90, but he looks like he's 75. He has a Facebook, and a massive hard drive for his computer. Fred has us over for dinner every fortnight, so this week we had the biggest steak and potatoes meal of my life. Sooo good.
Fast & Testimony Sunday yesterday was pretty awesome. We had 28 strong in the Branch yesterday, including Elder Gualco and I, but many of the members got up and bore powerful testimonies of how the Gospel has blessed their lives. After church, we got to take the sacrament to two Sisters who can't make it to church, which is always an awesome experience.
One of the members spoke about how the Gospel brings hope to our life and that is so true. We are so blessed to know about the Plan of Salvation and have the fullness of the Gospel here upon the earth today. As President Monson said in Conference, "if we choose Christ, we will have made the correct choice". The correct choice is the Gospel, and that is the best way to live life. So many blessings are in store as we do!
Love you heaps,
- D&C 14:7"And, if you keep my commandments and endure to the end you shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God."
The Lord doesn't ask a ton of us, sometimes it just seems like a lot. As we keep the commandments, we see blessings. As we endure to the end, we also see blessings. And that's the simplicity of the Gospel.
One of the Members has a Large Bible from the 1800's
