Missionary Thought

We've had visitors, say hello to Elder Malford and Elder Allan (Scotland Edinburgh LDS Mission) who popped by to spread the word and leaving with us a missionary challenge for the family.

They shared with us some scriptures (sorry the first one I missed) and Section 29:6,7

6 And, as it is written—Whatsoever ye shall ask in faith, being united in prayer according to my command, ye shall receive.

7 And ye are called to bring to pass the gathering of mine elect; for mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts;

and we were invited to reread the steps that had been discussed in a confrence talk by Elder David A Bednar in April 2008 General Confrence

"Ask in Faith" by doing the following

  • Thanking Heavenly Father for the doctrines and ordinances of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, which bring hope and happiness into our lives.

  • Asking for courage and boldness to open our mouths and share the gospel with our family and friends.

  • Entreating Heavenly Father to help us identify individuals and families who will be receptive to our invitation to be taught by the missionaries in our homes.

  • Pledging to do our part this day and this week and petitioning for help to overcome anxiety, fear, and hesitation.

  • Seeking for the gift of discernment—for eyes to see and ears to hear missionary opportunities as they occur.

  • Praying fervently for the strength to act as we know we should.

We shall do our best elders.
