A couple that returned a few months ago from a service mission to inner city Indianapolis spoke to us today and reported on their mission.
We talked about why Jesus was baptized. He was baptized because he obeyed every commandment of his father.
5 And now, if the Lamb of God, he being aholy, should have need to be bbaptized by water, to fulfil all righteousness, O then, how much more need have we, being unholy, to be cbaptized, yea, even by water! (2 Ne. 31: 5)
We talked about the difference between immortality and eternal life. Immortality being to live forever and not die. Eternal Life to live forever with God.
We talked about the Lord fasting for forty days. Fasting makes the body weak, but makes the spirit strong.
The Elders' quorum president went over the responsibilities of an elder. He then specifically focused on home teaching. We then listed all those in the quorum who were not present today. It was an interesting approach.
