November 17-18 Chad and Michelle Lewis Visit the Mission

From left, Sister Weidman, President Weidman, Chad Lewis, Michelle Lewis

Chad and Michelle Lewis accepted an invitation to present firesides at the Visitors Center--one by Brother Lewis in Mandarin Chinese and another "Why I Believe" fireside by Brother and Sister Lewis in English.  These presentations were engaging, inspiring, and well attended.  The next morning, Brother and Sister Lewis spoke to a group of missionaries, illustrating important gospel principles with experiences from their lives.  We appreciate their visit and the things they shared!

Elder and Sister Richards' Mission Visit

From left, President and Sister Weidman, Sister Marsha Richards, and Elder Kent F. Richards of the Second Quorum of the Seventy.
Elder and Sister Richards blessed our mission by meeting with every zone.  They taught us about obedience, teaching plainly and simply, and the four cornerstones on which our faith rests:   first, Jesus Christ, the Son of God; second, the First Vision; third, the Book of Mormon; and fourth, the Priesthood with its powers and authority.  We are so grateful for their visit and the lift they brought to our mission!

Book of Mormon Reading

The California Los Angeles Mission has the goal of every missionary re-reading the Book of Mormon before December 22nd.  Then we will have a Christmas devotional and share with one another our testimonies and what we've learned from this reading of the Book of Mormon.  The following is our reading schedule for each day.  We'd love for you to read along with us!
