I Went Down to the River to Pray...

Studyin' 'bout that good 'ol way! There's a river that runs through my area and it's always very pretty to look at. Back when missionaries first came, it was also the location of their baptisms. We had a service project this week where we picked up garbage off of the beach to help restore it's former glory. Even though it was at some points an arduous process, it felt good to see it clean and new. In a way, our service is similar to helping people repent. We had a zone conference (see picture of all the missionaries) and a large theme of it was about how we can help our investigators fully repent before their baptisms. It's amazing to see the change the gospel can bring into people's lives. I know that as we develop faith in Jesus Christ and repent for what we've done wrong, we become worthy and ready to be baptized into His church. I'm so thankful to be His representative and help people clean their own beaches so that they can be beautiful too!
