JANUARY 13, 2014

Family and Friends!!
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! So excited for this coming year! I know great things are ahead!
I wanted to share some of my thoughts and feelings about missionary work. As missionaries we have been given the privilege to use Facebook to further the Lord's work and the members have the privilege too. President Henry B. Eyring gives an amazing talk called 'We Are One'. He says, "I pray that wherever we are and whatever duties we have in the priesthood of God, we will be united in the cause to bring the gospel to all the world and that we will encourage people we love to be cleansed from sin and to be happy with us in the kingdom of God.. and in it he quotes President McKay: "Throw the responsibility upon every member of the Church that in the coming year of 1923 (2014) every member will be a missionary. Every member a missionary! You may bring your mother in the Church, or it may be your father; perhaps your fellow companion in the workshop. Somebody will hear the good message of the truth through you." And President McKay continued: "And that is the message today.EVERY member-a million and a half- a missionary!" 
What is a missionary? A missionary is one who shares the gospel by WORD and by EXAMPLE. Lets be who we are all called to be! We are all in this work together! We have been given so many ways to share the gospel. One of them being Facebook and other online tools. So lets use them for what they were invented to be used for. The work is hastening but are we? Now is the time to be member missionaries. If we want different results we have to do things differently. Whether that is sharing the gospel more by word or example or both. We as missionaries would love the support from all of you liking, sharing, or commenting on my posts and other missionaries posts even if you don't like them haha. I know that Heavenly Father is going to bless us as we help share the gospel. I know we are ONE in the work. ONE with our Savior. He stands with us always, may we stand with Him as well. Let your friends and family hear the good message from YOU! I love you all!! And so grateful for all the love and the support!
