Another Special Day

We had the opportunity to hear from Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles this past Saturday, January 19th. He came to the CCM to release President and Sister Crayk from their mission. The North, South, East, and Central Missions (Lima) were there, it was great. We got to see all of our old teachers, and President & Sister Crayk, and best of all, shake hands and meet Elder Nelson.
He and his wife spoke to us. Sister Nelson talked about looking into our eyes and seeing something. She said what ever we do brings light into our eyes and with this we can see what other people can not see. This paves the way. We just have to tell them about it. Then Elder Nelson talked about the gospel and what we need to have, and teach people to have; faith in Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized, receive the holy ghost, and endure to the end. He really emphised on enduring to the end, and how we need to teach the people that they need to work to receive blessings. It was awesome.
