Nourished by the Word of God

This week's best adventure was that we got to go out to the BR Branch [a Branch is a smaller congregation than a Ward].  We are covering both a ward and a branch, but we cover the branch only one day a week. Wednesday is our "BR Branch Day."  While we were there, we were able to teach a few less active members.  There was one lady who hasn't been to church in 30 years and I think she is ready for a change.  We went into the lesson planning on talking about Enos and prayer, but that didn't feel right.  We were able to read a Book of Mormon scripture with her in Moroni 6:4-6:

"And after they had been received unto baptism, and were wrought upon and cleansed by the power of the Holy Ghost, they were numbered among the people of the church of Christ; and their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God, to keep them in the right way, to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone upon the merits of Christ, who was the author and the finisher of their faith. And the church did meet together oft, to fast and to pray, and to speak one with another concerning the welfare of their souls. And they did meet together oft to partake of bread and wine, in remembrance of the Lord Jesus."

We were able to testify about the importance of church and we were able to teach by the Spirit according to her needs.  I am so grateful that the Holy Ghost can give us guidance in what we need to say, that he will bring scriptures to our remembrance.  I am also grateful that He told my companion that prayer wasn't the right thing to talk about so when I started reading a completely different scripture she didn't panic.  She was able to take it in stride and testify about church and its importance as well.

I love this church and I love sharing my testimony of it with other people. Keep up the great work, family. I love you all so much!  Love, Sister Cluff


P.S.  Transfers are coming up again.  Next Monday is transfer day and I will know for sure on Saturday what is going to happen.
