Missions are Fun

A missionary is someone who leaves his or her home for a little while so others can have their families forever.

Curious about Mormons? Go to the source and find real people at mormon.org--read what they believe and have live chats if you wish! (an official Church website)

Or, go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, official web site: lds.org.

Our Mission Scriptures

Our Mission Scriptures:

"Oh, that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." Alma 29:1-2 (Book of Mormon)

" . . . be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (Bible)

Picture of Jesus Christ Survives Fire

He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgement on the earth: and the isles shall wait his law.  Isaiah 42:4
The whole article about the Provo Tabernacle being destroyed by fire is  found in Meridian Magazine, but this is a small miracle worth passing on, especially poignant this time of year.

by Bill Freeze.  
For most viewing the interior it was a total loss…and then yesterday a fireman removed one of the many pieces of art work in the building…it is the building’s only survivor…a picture of Jesus Christ. The fire had seared the picture all around the frame and most of the picture…except the figure of our Lord and redeemer….he somehow survived.

Isn’t that really the message of our Christmas season? When we are downtrodden, heartbroken, sick, poor, miserable…when all seems lost…that little child of Bethlehem that came into the world over 2,000 years ago is still with us. His message, mission and life are eternal and when the flames of death attack us he survives and saves not only himself, but all of mankind.

Merry Christmas to all of you. The best is yet to come
