“I don’t know how many more “rushes” we can handle this weekend. Some of us have weak hearts.” -Elder Holland
What a great month it’s been! It finally feels like spring has arrived. To start with General Conference and to hear the inspired words of a living prophet was wonderful… but more on that in a moment.
The Young Men and Young Women had the opportunity on the 15th to attend Music and the Spoken Word at the Tabernacle on Temple Square. It was beautiful! Our Ward Game Night on the 18th was great as well. Special Thanks to all who made it such a fun night.
We’re excited to begin with the changes in the Priesthood organization, and the new Ministering program which President Nelson called: “a newer, holier approach”. We hope that the spirit of love will fill our ward as we do so. It’s easy to feel the love that our Prophet has for all of us.
The topic for the month of May is The Restoration. I really like L. Tom Perry’s talk from the April 2007 Conference. I leave you with his words, adding my testimony to his:
“Our message is unique. We declare to the world that the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. We declare with boldness that the keys of the priesthood have been restored to man, with the power to seal on earth and in the heavens. The saving ordinances pronounced by the Lord as requirements for entering into eternal life with Him can now be performed with binding authority by those who worthily exercise the power of His holy priesthood. We declare to the world that this is the day referred to by biblical prophets as the latter days. It is the final time, before the coming of Jesus Christ to rule and reign over the earth.
We invite all to listen to the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ from us. Then you can compare the glorious message with what you may hear from others, and you can determine which is from God and which is from man.
My witness to you is that this is the Church of Jesus Christ, established in the latter days. In the name of our Lord and Savior, even Jesus Christ, amen.” – L. Tom Perry
