Missionary Devotional Jan 15th 2017

Our wonderful missionaries have been very busy bringing souls unto Christ.  We did not have a devotional in December, so invitations were sent to those who were baptized during November and December.
New members of the Church!

In addition to baptisms, we had countless referrals, findings, lessons taught and an outpouring 
of love and service to everyone in the Washington Federal Way Mission boundaries.


Our missionary devotional, held January 15th at the Kent Stake Center, was an excellent coming together of missionaries, new converts, investigators and members.  Our wonderful choir did not disappoint in bringing the spirit through music, and a big thank you to Sister Edvalson, conductor and Sister Grimm, pianist.

The program for the evening contained the following highlights:
  • Elder Hancock taught that "We are literally the spirit children of a loving Heavenly Father."

  • New member, Jason Wilson, told of his conversion and bore testimony of the peace, assurance, consistency and surety of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • Sister Reynolds taught that "Christ provides the only way back to the Father."
Caleb Newton told of his conversion which included mormon.or, and of a  Book of Mormon that was slipped into his backpack.  "There's always better things to come!"

  • Elder Roach taught us that "Truth and authority have been restored!"

Mehria Nessar told of her war torn childhood in Afghanistan and how we all need to
find our "personal perfect".  Her baptism into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
was her "personal perfect".

  • Hermana Lewis taught "We can know the truth of these things for ourselves through the Holy Ghost."

  • BreAnn Hake told of her love of the scripture found in Philippians "I can do all things thru Christ which strengthens me."  Since her baptism she feels "Now I have purpose, answers and peace in my life."
President Sterling Rasmussen bore testimony, and invited those in attendance to search further on the websites and

President Stroud, Kent Stake President gave words of encouragement and also bore testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel.

The entire evening was a spiritual feast for all in attendance!

I can't wait for the next devotional which will be on February 19th, 2017.
