Friday night dinner and devotional

Elder L. Tom Perry and President Eberhardt...these men radiate everything that is good.
Elders Hawton and Gebler...they are lighting our stake on fire.
Since our responsibility is to help investigators learn by faith and by the power of the Holy Ghost, this work is never about me and it is never about you. We need to do all in our power to fulfill our missionary responsibility and simultaneously “get out of the way” so the Holy Ghost can perform His sacred function and work. In fact, anything you or I do as representatives of the Savior that knowingly and intentionally draws attention to self—in the messages we present, in the methods we use, or in our personal demeanor and appearance—is a form of priestcraft that inhibits the teaching effectiveness of the Holy Ghost. Becoming a Preach My Gospel Missionary...Elder Bednar
We sat with a couple who are serving at the Park City visitor's center.
Sister Willis loves her mission and is always full of enthusiasm.
These two couples have tremendous responsibility.

Regardless of how earnestly we serve, you and I simply cannot push or force truth into the hearts of investigators. Our best efforts can only bring the message of truth unto the heart (see 2 Nephi 33:1). Ultimately, an investigator needs to act in righteousness and thereby invite the truth into his or her own heart. Only in this way can honest seekers of truth and new converts develop the spiritual capacity to find answers for themselves. Becoming a Preach My Gospel Elder Bednar
