Missionaries in the News 

President & Sister Drake 
Comments & Counsel 

Dear Family, Friends, and Missionaries, 
I have been truly touched by the reading we, as a mission, have been doing in the Book of Mormon. This week I have been focused on Ether 12. This chapter is a great teacher of Faith, Hope and Charity. These three qualities seem to permeate the ability to achieve the Celestial kingdom. I want to bring special atten-tion to verses 26-28 that talk about our weaknesses and why He gives us weakness. Verse 26 clearly warns us that many fools will make fun our weakness, not to help us, but to scornfully use us to their end rather than to our growth. " Fools mock, but they shall mourn; and my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness;" He goes on to further state if we will come unto him in humility he will make our weak things strong. A great promise. Verse 28 "Behold, I will show unto the Gentiles their weakness, and I will show unto them that faith, hope and charity bringeth unto me--the fountain of all right-eousness. 
We have been given weakness to help us better understand that it, with faith and hope can become a strength and only fools mock those that try to change and become obedient. Then through charity we ob-tain the "full fountain of righteousness." 
All of us need to continue, as he says in this scripture, to come to him and his grace will be sufficient. Re-pentance is the beginning of the process and His love propels us to succeed. Continue to put your faith and hope in him that we may all become partakers at that fountain of all righteousness. 
Our missionaries are doing great things and although we will miss those who have completed their service and returned home with honor, we are grateful for our newly arrived Sisters and Elders and look forward to serving with them in this great work. 
The Church is true! 
President Drake 


"If any man will do his will, he shall know of the 
doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I 
speak of myself." (John 7:17) 
“We recognize that as learners, you and I are to act 
and be doers of the word not simply hearers who 
are only acted upon. Are you and I agents who act 
and seek learning by faith, or are we waiting to be 
taught and acted upon? 
-Elder David A. Bednar 
(Seek Learning By Faith) 

The size of your faith or the degree of your 
knowledge is not the issue—it is the integrity 
you demonstrate toward the faith you do have 
and the truth you already know. 
-Elder Jeffrey R. Holland 
(Lord, I Believe) 

Love, Elder Hansen & Bond 

“Knowledge is like paint, worthless... until its applied.”
