Beloved Elders and Sisters,
How do we adequately express “Thank You” with all the depth of our tender feelings and gratitude to each of you? You are the Servants of the Lord. You are the mighty Stripling Warriors of the Washington Kennewick Mission! You are the Hope of Israel! You are striving to become disciples of Jesus Christ. We will always love you, admire you, and desire to be a small part of your lives! You have blessed our life SO much! We have great confidence in each one of you to fulfill your purpose in Jesus Christ!
o God, Our Loving Heavenly Father, Lives!o Faith in Jesus Christ is the Power!o Focused on your Purpose is the Means!o Striving for exact obedience is the Price!o Living The Doctrine of Christ daily is The Only Way!o Love for Jesus Christ and others Must be your Motive!o Being on Fire in The Spirit is the Key!o Jesus Christ is the Reason we serve with all our heart, might, mind and strength that we might be the means of bringing souls unto Christ!
A glorious week is dawning over Eastern Washington! President and Sister Lewis arrive on Wednesday and the WA Yakima Mission is born to work side by side with the WA Kennewick Mission. Jesus Christ is hastening the pace of His hastening of the work of salvation to find, teach and bring our brothers and sisters to Christ in the covenant of baptism.
Heaven is pouring down blessings and miracles upon your investigators because of their faith and your faith in Jesus Christ! 6 of our brothers and sisters joined with Christ in the waters of baptism this week, 42 during June on our prayerful goal of 70, and 7 are preparing this week and another 133 are on date and preparing for the weeks ahead in July. WE MUST DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO HELP THEM PROGRSS SPIRITUALLY!
Honestly, 239 new investigators last week is good, however, there are more waiting. Let exert great faith and be led by the Spirit to hunt, and dig and scratch in the holes of the rocks and find 300 this week, as we have done before! Many are preparing and waiting for you!
As to the question of writing a letter or email to companions who will now be in the other mission, policy (in your tri-fold) states “Occasionally write an email or letter on P-day to missionaries serving in other missions.”
In the face of challenge and obstacles let us always remember Christ and “Press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and all men. Feasting upon the word of Christ.”
Sustain those who hold priesthood keys! Work hard, give your very best, achieve your goals, and sleep well! In Christ you can do all things He needs you to do for Him!
With much love, President and Sister Ware
