~ True Servants of the Lord ~

“The office of an elder is a calling of dignity and honor, spiritual authority and power. The designation ‘prospective’ implies hope and optimism and possibility. Our greatest and most important duty is to preach the gospel
Elder Jones and Elder Obray are wonderful > they are in a companionship in the Mechitiw Branch. Tonight they are treating themselves to Pizza. Elder Jones says see how buff I am :)
“The priesthood is not divisible. An elder holds as much priesthood as an Apostle. D&C 20:38 The duty of the elders, priests, teachers, deacons, and members of the church of Christ—An apostle is an elder, and it is his calling to baptize;
When a man receives the priesthood, he receives all of it. However, there are offices within the priesthood—divisions of authority and responsibility. One may exercise his priesthood according to the rights of the office to which he is ordained or set apart.
“Missionary work isn’t the only thing we need to do in this big, wide, wonderful Church. But almost everything else we need to do depends on people first hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ and coming into the faith. … With all that there is to do along the path to eternal life, we need a lot more missionaries opening that gate and helping people through it.”Jeffery R Holland"
