I am so excited about the new Easter Initiative put out by the Church.
I wanted to shout hallelujah when I first watched it. The message is for everyone. We have all lost someone we love at some point in our life. I think of my younger brother, my nephew Jaylen, grandparents, aunts and uncles, many friends and most recently a dear cousins wife. None are lost because of Jesus Christ. We will be together again. There is so much peace and hope in the message of the restored gospel. Not only will we all be resurrected but we can live eternally as families. I had an experience a few days ago while getting my hair cut. I have been to the same person a couple of times. We have mainly had surface conversations and I was having a hard time finding any common interest. This time I was praying in my heart that I would know what to say to be able to have a gospel conversation. I was nervous. It is hard to "open my mouth" and be bold. I began to ask about his family and learned his mother had recently passed away. That opened the door to be able to talk about life after death and Jesus Christ. Before I left I gave him the pass along card with the info about the new video. I'm not sure what will come of it but I was grateful to be able to share that message with him. We all need hope!
The missionaries are very excited about this initiative. They are prayerfully planning how to share it and invite others to come unto Christ. I know we will see many miracles in the coming weeks.
I want to invite all of you to watch the video and think of someone you could share it with. Send them a simple text with the link and simply say "I thought of you when I watched this today". You too will see miracles.
