Monday, March 16th, 2015

We have had a really miraculous week. We had the zone leaders with us on splits and were able to find a lot of new people to teach including a girl and her friend who came to church on Sunday. It was really wonderful to see the Lord’s hand in our work. I have been pondering recently the significance the gospel has to each and every one of the children of God on earth. It can be easy, particularly when it is hard to find people who want to learn more about it, to remember and think about how much the gospel enables us to achieve. It is remarkable to think about the potential each and every person on the earth has. There are many who do a lot of great things without following and relying upon the Savior, but without Him no one can reach his or her full potential. I gave a lesson yesterday on service, which is a wonderful topic. They are truly many wonderful opportunities to love and serve one another.

Christ’s mercy is over us all. He blesses us all with so much. Our obedience does not produce the blessings, but it enables us to more fully receive them. I am grateful to know that the Savior lives and loves us. He is at the head of this work. He is the light and life of the word. I am going to be in Trondheim with Eldste Cheney on Wednesday because Eldste Kirk is going to a meeting in Oslo. It will be fun to be with him again. I am grateful for all of the blessings in my life. I know that God watches over and loves all of us. The Norwegian word of the week is mirakeløs, which means miraculous.
