This month will be a busy month for the Mount Pleasant Fourth Ward. Jentry Ison will report to the Missionary Training Center on September 27 as she prepares to serve the good people in the Vancouver Washington area. We are really excited for Jentry and know that she will be an amazing missionary. She is following the example of many great missionaries that have and are serving from our ward, including her older brother Austin. Jentry and Austin won’t see each other for 3 1/2 years. It is great to see young people that are so committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It will also be great to have a sister serving from our ward. We hope this is a trend that we will begin to see with our young sisters. We would also love to see some older couples serve missions from our ward.
This month the theme in Sacrament Meeting is Grace. I look forward to many great talks on Grace. Jentry and Ryker Erickson will share a meeting as they give their farewell talks on September 17. Ryker will report to the MTC in October, so I look forward to mentioning his service in October’s newsletter.
The greatest Sacrament Meeting of the year happens on September 24 when we will have our primary program. We all love hearing from our primary and listening to their songs. Sister Brotherson and the rest of our primary presidency and teachers do such a good job. We are grateful for the amazing kids and adults in our ward.
Brothers and Sisters, the church is true, Jesus is the Christ. Through His grace we can all return and live with our Heavenly Father in the Celestial Kingdom. I believe we will all make it and enjoy the blessings that a loving Heavenly Father have in store for us. I love serving with each of you and look forward to a great month.
