So we are in Montgomery right now. We are about to go hit up some cool museums. Very excited. The whole time I'm like "Kara would love this!!!" One day we will have to come.
-This week our boy Jimmie was baptized. It was so good. He was so happy.
-All 4 of us missionaries gave talks in sacrament meeting. We talked all about temples, family history, and missionary work. I shared the my experience when I first went through the temple. i remember we were all eating food and i told dad "Dad!!! That was amazing. Wow! Why doesnt everyone know about this?" Dad told me "Hey you're going on a mission right ;)" And I was like "Dad you are so right!!!"
-Update:Just got back from Montgomery! LOVED IT! here are some pics!
I love the Savior. I love this Church. I love learning more about him! I had to share President Sainsburys email. It was too good not to.
At this Easter season, we remember with immense gratitude the sacrifices of our Savior in Gethsemane and on Calvary’s cross. No mortal can comprehend the full import of what Christ did for us in Gethsemane. His suffering there caused Him to “tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit” (Doctrine and Covenants 19:18). Following the agony of Gethsemane, the Savior’s wounded body was nailed to a cross on Calvary’s hill where once again, the sins and sorrows and pains of all mankind came upon Him. When His mission was completed, when the price was paid, merciful death came, His body was gently placed in a borrowed tomb.
Three days later, angels declared to the weeping Mary Magdalene: “He is not here, but is risen” (Luke 24:6). With these words, the most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history was announced — the completion of the Atonement and the Savior’s victory over death. The tomb is empty. He is risen. Christ has overcome darkness, pain, sin, evil, despair, disease, loneliness, anguish, aging unfairness, and most importantly, death. The salvation of mankind was secured. The Fall of Adam was reclaimed.
At this Easter season, we humbly testify our Savior was resurrected and He lives again. Because of his triumph over the grave, each of God’s children will receive the Savior’s gift of immortality. And those who love the Savior and follow His teachings will be blessed with life eternal.
