Mission Challenge

This is a picture we have hug in the dinning room of the mission home.  It is a wonder depiction of our Saviors love.  We have a saying in our mission, "Feel Loved".  We remind our missionaries of the love our Savior has for them and that they can FEEL this love as we use the Atonement in our lives.  This is the great message, as missionaries, that we share.  Those feelings of hurt, anger, sorrow and shame, anything that keeps us from feeling His love, can be lifted and replaced by the peace and comfort of this love.
This week we met as an entire mission. President Richards taught on the Book of Mormon and the prophet Joseph Smith.  We are having a mission challenge to read 9 pages of the Book of Mormon each day and find personal answers to "Questions of the Soul".  These are found on page 107 in Preach My Gospel.  This challenge will conclude December 23rd at our Christmas Mission Devotional.  We are extending this challenge to our missionaries who have gone home, Ward members and families of missionaries.  What a great time of year to ponder the blessing of the Gospel and the answers we can receive through the scriptures, modern and personal revelation.  We are blessed to serve with these amazing missionaries.  
They are obedient, diligent, loving, faithful and 
a lot of fun to be with.
