Angels in the Outfield Recap!

Visiting Teaching?
What do a baseball movie and visiting teaching have in common?

Rich Harris was the speaker for this baseball-themed RS Birthday Dinner.
The room was decorated with baseball paraphernalia.

After a  pitcher's mound of BBQ Ribs and Salads...with ice cream sandwiches for was time for a little coaching/instruction.

Bro. Harris showed a clip of the movie..."Angels in the Outfield."
As visiting teachers we learned that we are all angels in the outfield
as we help the sisters around us.
He spoke of his mother's illness and her desire to finish her visiting teaching...even with only days left to live.

Our RS Team Captains.
They have all our bases covered.
"Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack..."
Everyone went home with Cracker Jack and a thought.
April Visiting Teaching Message
Our beautiful Mount Timpanogos Temple.
How often I see it shining at the base of the mountain.
Temple Covenants
"The saving ordinances received in the temple that permit us to someday return to our Heavenly Father in an eternal family relationship and to be endowed with blessings and power from on high are worth every sacrifice and every effort," said President Thomas S. Monson.  If you have not yet been to the temple, you can prepare to receive sacred temple ordinances by:
  • Believing in Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost.
  • Cultivating a testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ an the restored Gospel
  • Sustaining and following the living prophet.
  • Qualifying for a temple recommend by paying tithing, being morally clean, being honest, keeping the Word of Wisdom, and living in harmony with the teachings of the Church.
  • Giving time, talents, and means to help build the Lord's kingdom.
  • Participating in family history work.
President Monson further taught, "As we remember the covenants we make within [the temple], we will be more able to bear every trial and overcome each temptation."

The Nauvoo Temple...1840s
When the Nauvoo temple was dedicated, thousands of Saints came to receive their temple covenants.  Even though they would be leaving soon on their westward exodus, the people knew that the strength and power of these temple blessings would sustain them on their journey.  Without these covenants, the difficult journey would have the words of one sister who was a temple worker..."like one taking a leap in the dark."
