We speak to God through prayer, which I've been using a lot lately. You will never stand taller than when you are on your knees. But God speaks to us in many ways. Through His holy scriptures, through His prophets, through His Spirit....There are many ways! I'm grateful for the fact that we get to listen to our prophet this weekend in General Conference. Listen to what God has to say online at lds.org or on TV via BYUtv. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to listen to the words of the prophets and His chosen leaders so that I may feel comfort, love, peace, and guidance through times of difficulty and even times of joy.
We went on exchanges on Saturday and to Clarke Farms with Sister Hunter. It was fantabulous! It almost was a nice refresher on what missionary work really is: it's inviting others to come unto Christ.
The General Women's Broadcast was equally as enjoyable. One of the greatest things I learned from the speakers was from Sister Neill F, Marriott. It is our duty to share this light that we have, this simple knowledge of the gospel with others. Our purpose is to bring people to eternal glory, to their divine potential. The purpose of temples is to allow people to obtain the covenants necessary to live with their Father in Heaven again. Therefore, our purpose as disciples of Christ is the same purpose as the temples here on Earth today! We are literally temples of God!
"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16).
We are temples. Learn about temples and why we have temples here. Also, look for a temple that's being constructed near you because before it's dedicated for its purpose, the public is welcome to look inside! That's everyone!
I'm so grateful that I can be a full-time missionary teaching people about the full gospel of Jesus Christ. It's a privilege to be able to do that.
