Week 100 - So many highlights this week!

This week has been a wonderful week!!

Some of the highlights...
-Helping Jose prepare for his baptism that is coming up!
-Participating in an inspirational zone conference (gave my departing testimony....)
-Helping Edwin quit smoking (so he can enter into the temple)
-Giving a blessing to a baby who was afflicted and whose mother was in distress
-Being surprised with a visit by an old companion and being able to talk about the good times we had serving together (Elder Gregor)
-Having the opportunity to be taught by Elder David S. Baxter; who presided at stake conference and being able to meet and talk with him
-I also had my departing interview with President Jensen on Sunday (due to the number of missionaries who are going home with me)
and last but not least...
-Being able to participate in Stake Coordination and to be able to learn hands on about leadership in the church.

Stake Coordination is a meeting in which leaders from the mission meet with the leaders from the stake they are serving in to discuss the Work of Salvation.

It is truly amazing to see the Lord use the men of the Priesthood as his instruments here on the earth!

I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is led by men chosen by God. 
 D&C 65:2
   2 The keys of the kingdom of God are committed unto man on the earth, and from thence shall the gospel roll forth unto the ends of the earth, as the stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands shall roll forth, until it has filled the whole earth.

In this life we must prepare to return to our Father in Heaven. To return to our Father we must....
  Moroni 10:32-33
     32    , come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.
 33 And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot.
We must act in this life, it is essential! "As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also"(James 2:26).

Thank you for all of the love and support
Elder Roberts
