The Whole Armor of God

The Whole Armor of God

La Armadura de Dios

To kick off the new year of 2010, Sr. Clark reminded the missionaries of the importance of putting on the whole armor of God as taught in Doctrine and Covenants 27:15-18. Some of our most valiant warriors in the battle for righteousness in our lives, were able to don some "primary-like" pieces of armor as we talked about each point...

15: Wherefore, lift up your hearts and rejoice, and gird up your loins, and take upon you my whole armor, that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, having done all, that ye may be able to stand.

Elder Villela in Gomez Palacio

16: Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth having on the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, which I have sent mine angels to commit unto you;

Elder Pineda in Durango, Mexico

17: Taking the shield of faith where-with ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked;

Elder Gallegos in Fresnillo

18: And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of my Spirit, which I will pour out upon you, and my word which I reveal unto you, and be agreed as touching all things whatsoever ye ask of me, and be faithful until I come, and ye shall be caught up, that where I am ye shall be also.

Elder Lopez in Madero

These wonderful missionaries have to be protected from the adversary by living close to the Spirit at all times. The opposition is great for those who do what is right. They must be prepared to withstand the fiery darts of the adversary as they spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughtout the Mision Mexico Torreon.

We are so grateful for these righteous young people who have committed two years to serve their Heavenly Father.

They are indeed "warriors" in the army of our Savior.
