Well the highlight of the week was definitely the baptism of Ramsses. We had a great turnout with most of the youth in the ward coming and a lot of the family of Ramsses as well. The service was great and he shared his testimony after and it was SUPER powerful. He's totally serving a mission.
Later that night we had an awesome family home evening with a couple of families both active and less active. It was a huge success!
I'm studying the new testament right now and this week I read something that I really liked. It was:
2 Cor 12:9-10.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses
for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
I love it!!! Every challenge we face is an opportunity to respond by applying the teachings of Christ in our lives. The whole purpose of this life is CHANGE. Change to become more like Christ. His strength is made perfect in weakness. For when I am weak, then I am STRONG.
