I really looked forward to our annual seminar. I wanted to be spiritually fed and I was! I had been preparing myself for some time. Elder Perry, Elder Rasband and the Area Presidency spoke! They focused on "The Rescue" of our less active members. They discussed how as those that are brought back bring with them family that want to hear the gospel and be baptized. We are seeing that in the mission. As our missionaries reach out to the less active - they are coming back and are being welcomed by their old friends. Their children or relatives are being taught the gospel and are entering the waters of baptism. We have passed the number of baptisms we had last year and there is a different feel in the mission. It is so AWESOME!
We were able to attend the Helsinki Temple and what a great experience. We looked forward to this and could hardly wait to attend. We felt so spiritually fed in the temple. I soaked up every word as if it were for the first time attending and yet I felt like I was at home. My Eternal Home. I never have had all my senses come so alive before. It was wonderful, wonderful to me. I love my Savior and I am eternally indebted to him.
