God’s Tender Mercies

April 25, 2016

          So, this week was a really great week.  We have been starting to find a lot of new possibilities for people to get baptized in May. This week I learned a lot about God`s tender mercies.  For example, this week the ward council helped us a lot.  The ward council asked for us to visit some less-active part-member families and also some old investigators. We are also working a lot with the ward missionaries and they are so great. They have become auto sufficient.  We don`t have to invite them to go visit somebody or invite someone to church. They do it on their own and are really excited to be working in His work.
          I had an exchange this week.  It was so awesome.  We started talking about study plans and the different ways to study the scriptures. We had heard about how some people study the scriptures. So I decided to put my own study plan that is very similar. I have started reading the Book of Mormon in this way.  What I do is read a chapter like 1 Nephi 1 and after I read I go back and for every verse read all of the footnotes for every verse and then write my impressions in a journal. Even though it has taken a lot longer to read, I have been able to understand so much more about the Book of Mormon and how important it is to have the Bible and how well they work together to both testify of Christ.

          I hope you all have an amazing week,
Elder Rogers
