Missionary Conference — Sunday, December 2, 2018


Mission Conference, Sunday, December 2, 2018

1/ President and Sister Rahlf

  • There is no better time to be a missionary than during the Christmas season.
  • A simple descending scale on the piano, with appropriate pauses, delivers the BEST NEWS of all.  Hum the first line of “Joy To The World”.
  • How do our Christmas carols teach the doctrine of Christ?
  • Faith in Christ — Long lay the world in sin and error pining…  The people in the Americas watched steadfastly for the day and the night and the day without darkness (great faith).
  • Repentance — Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled.   2 Nephi 25:23   To reconcile means to restore friendly relations or to coexist in harmony.
  • Baptism — to save our souls from Satan’s power when we have gone astray…   Ether 4:18
  • Holy Ghost —  God rest ye merry, gentlemen really means God make you mighty, gentlemen.   Glory streams from heaven above
  • Endure to the end — …where meek souls shall receive him still, the dear Christ enters in.   Wise men still seek Him.  We bring you glad tidings of great joy.

2/ Sister Gilbert

  • Let there be peace on earth, sung by a little Claire Crosby, with her father and the Piano Guys in the background.  Very sweet
  • What can I let go of in my life as a gift to the Savior?

3/ President Gilbert

  • Who is the great peace giver?
  • Spiritually LAME?  Refusing to ‘walk’ with the Savior
  • Spiritually BLIND?  Refusing to ‘see’ the good in others
  • Spiritually HALT?  Moving sluggishly due to anger, sin, or contention
  • Spiritually MAIMED?  Nursing grudges or hostilities
  • Spiritually DUMB?  Refusing to open our mouths in defense of the Lord and His gospel

4/ Sister Martino

  • What experience have you had with the Atonement?
  • Everything in the gospel is an appendage to the Atonement
  • What lack I yet?  The atonement is for both sinners AND saints
  • What is keeping me from progressing?  Find the answer and make a change!

5/ President Martino

  • Without Easter there would be no Christmas.  Alma 7:23
  • Adorn your own Christmas tree with the various names of the Savior and ponder the meaning  of each one — Savior, Messiah, Jehovah, Beloved Son, Lamb of God, Only Begotten, Wonderful, Holy One, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Advocate.
