1/ Sister Zwick

  • Are you scared or frightened by your call?  Read Moroni 7:33 – you can do all things through Christ.
  • Elijah sealed the heavens.
  • Elisha asked the widow to make him a cake.  How much faith did she display by doing it? The meal did not waste or run out.
  • Acknowledge our dependence on the Lord and His spirit will fortify us.
  • Bring what you have and the Lord will magnify it.  Remember the feeding of the 5000?  They provided a few fish and pieces of bread, and the Lord supplied the rest.
  • Be grateful for small successes each day.  Don’t expect huge miracles every day.


2/ Elder Zwick

  • I love the excitement of missionary work
  • Jesus saw potential in others.  So can you.  He saw greatness in Saul,  in fishermen, in Alma the younger.
  • One person can make a great difference.
  • D&C 82:15,19  Bind by the laws of the Lord, everyone should seek the interest of their neighbor.  The Savior’s light will come back to you.
  • Jesus said, in 3 Nephi 18, to hold up the light, and that He was the light that we should hold up.
  • The Sea of Galilee receives and also gives.  The Dead Sea only receives. It is in receiving and then giving back that we find growth and love and light
  • Be a conduit, not just a container.
  • Reflect the light, honor it by your actions.  Concentrate on the salvation of others.
  • Challenges cannot and must not stop you.  The essential thing is to forget ourselves and turn outward.  Give what you have.
