>Quenton L. Cook!

>Hola,

This was an incredible week, and one that will never be forgotten. Our entire mission had the blessing of coming together to hear the words of an Apostle, 2 members of the Seventy, and a member of the Presiding Bishopric. I might spell their names wrong but we spent an hour with Elder Quentin L. Cook, Elder Costa, Elder Keele, and Bishop McMullin. There are several things that stood out to me that I would like to share:

– Elder Cook made an amazing promise to us. He started by saying that he was making the unique promise as a Special Witness of Christ. He said that there were some of us who have siblings struggling with activity, parents getting ready to lose a home to foreclosure, and other trials occuring at home, and that we may wonder why we are serving a mission instead of going home to help those we love. He then gave us a blessing that our family will receive greater blessings for our service as a missionary and there is no where else we could help them more. He continued the blessing by adding that not only our family, but everyone we love will begin receiving greater blessings because of our missionary service. And then he finished it by powerfully saying that for the rest of our lives everyone we come in contact with will be blessed as well.

– Elder Costa taught me something that I did not know. He testified that the United Sates is the BEST and MOST fruitful part of the Lords vineyard, and then added that missionary work here is easy. He said that this is where he would have wanted to be called on a mission.

– Bishop McMullin taught us missionaries that we are out here to share a unique message with the world, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. If we do not testify of the first prophet of this restoration we are not fulfilling our call.

– Elder Cook taught us that while testifying of the prophet Joseph Smith to investigators is crucial, it is even more important when teaching less actives.

– Elder Cook mentioned that a missionary is responsible for lifting the spirituality of the entire ward they serve in, and that we should be such good examples that more young men want to serve missions.

Love!

Elder Inman
