Rome West Zone - May 2016

*  *  *  *  *

President Waddoups did a follow up talk about the theme of the Worldwide Missionary Conference.  That is the same thing as the Mission President's Seminar we just attended last week.  The theme is:

Teach Repentance and Baptize Converts

 He re-emphasized the importance of the missionary purpose which is:

Nostro Scopo e'
Invitare le persone a venire a Cristo
Alutandole ad accettare il vangelo
Restaurato mediate la fede in 
Gesu' Cristo e la Sua espiazione,
Il conferimento del dono della
Spirito Santo e perserverando
sino alla fine.

Our purpose is
to invite others to come unto Christ 
by helping them receive the restored gospel 
through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, 
repentance, baptism, 
receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, 
and enduring to the end.

 He referred to scriptures that help understand our purpose and how we can achieve it.

Jeremiah 1:7-9
7  ¶ But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: 
for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, 
and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
8  Be not afraid of their faces: 
for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
9  Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. 
And the Lord said unto me, Behold, 
I have put my words in thy mouth.
D&C 100:3-8
 3  Behold, and lo, I have much people in this place, in the regions round about; 
and an effectual door shall be opened in the regions 
round about in this eastern land.
4  Therefore, I, the Lord, have suffered you to come unto this place; 
for thus it was expedient in me for the salvation of souls.
5  Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; 
speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, 
and you shall not be confounded before men;
6  For it shall be given you in the very hour, 
yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say.
7  But a commandment I give unto you, that ye shall declare 
whatsoever thing ye declare in my name, in solemnity of heart, 
in the spirit of meekness, in all things.
8  And I give unto you this promise, that inasmuch as ye do this 
the Holy Ghost shall be shed forth in bearing record unto all things 
whatsoever ye shall say.

Alma 5:48-49
49  And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, 
yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren, yea, and every one that dwelleth in the land; 
yea, to preach unto all, both old and young, both bond and free; 
yea, I say unto you the aged, and also the middle aged, and the rising generation;
yea, to cry unto them that they must repent and be born again.

Alma 29:1-2
1  O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, 
that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, 
with a voice to shake the earth, and cry repentance unto every people!
2  Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, 
repentance and the plan of redemption, t
hat they should repent and come unto our God, 
that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth.
