Letter to the Stake

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Mesquite Nevada Stake: Good morning “O What A Beautiful Day” hoping this email finds you all well. We are grateful for you and love you very much. We are living in an amazing time, even though there are many trials and tribulations around us. We can find peace in Jesus Christ. We are grateful for the way that you have shown your Christlike love to your families and neighbors. There are many wonderful faith promoting stories (even miracles) about what is going on in our stake. We urge you to keep up the good work in ministering and being positive. There is a YouTube video entitled “bridge over troubled water General Conference compilation” that we would recommend you watch about finding,Peace In Christ.Click on the link below to view the video. We would like to challenge each of you to do some indexing or family history during this time. We promise you all the blessings that have been promised to us by prophets and apostles if we will engage ourselves in this work. Family history is a broad spectrum of things that you can do, you can record stories, pictures and memories. You can also add information or fix any errors you may find about your ancestors where needed. If you need help with family history or indexing you can contact your ward temple and family history leader, or you can contact a member of your elders quorum or relief society presidencies. This can and should be done through technology by phone or email or FaceTime or any other kind of technology at this time, it is possible for those brethren and sisters to help you with your temple and family history work without meeting face-to-face. We also encourage you to record your thoughts and feelings about this historic time in the history of the world, write it down in your journals. Last but not least would be to work on your personal history so that your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren etc. will be able to read the stories that you record, and your thoughts and feelings of how you can make it through hard times. We also encourage you to watch general conference this Saturday and Sunday. I testify that we are led by a prophet (Russel M. Nelson) of God that we will be able to hear prophets, apostles, and other church leaders speak to us and give us instructions on what our Heavenly Father would have us do. I hope we have the courage to follow the prophets, apostles, and promptings we receive. I know that God lives and loves each of us, and Jesus is the Christ the Savior of the world and through him we can be saved by faith, works, and grace. That this is his church on the earth today. That Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration. We are living in inspired times. Families are forever. Keep your family close to you even if they are far away. Always be mindful of those around you and strive to keep the spirit to be with you at all times. Always remember that we will be OK if we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in our life. We invite all to join us with open arms we can do this together!My wife’s favorite saying and mine too is, “this too shall pass”I testify of these things and extend my love to each of you in the name of Jesus Christ amen. Message from President Anderson "Patience is the capacity to endure delay, trouble, opposition, or suffering without becoming angry, frustrated, or anxious. It is the ability to do God’s will and accept His timing. When you are patient, you hold up under pressure and are able to face adversity calmly and hopefully.” (Preach My Gospel: "How Do I Develop Christlike Attributes?" Chapter 6)Hang in there everyone! We'll get through this! Another video: Sincerely Mesquite Nevada Sake Presidency
