On Friday we had an amazing district meeting (one of the most spiritual we have ever had) and we started off talking about the miracles that we have seen on our missions. Everyone shared a short story and I was amazed at all of the miracles people have seen on their missions. That got the meeting off to a great start and the Spirit was very strong. After that we talked about how Christ can multiply our efforts just like he multiplied the bread and fishes to feed the multitude of the 5000. We read about Enoch in the book of Moses 6 when he was called to preach to the people. When called this was Enoch's response:
"And when Enoch had heard these words, he bowed himself to the earth, before the Lord, and spake before the Lord, saying: Why is it that I have found favor in thy sight, and am but a lad, and all the people hate me; for I am slow of speech; wherefore am I thy servant?"
"Go forth and do as I have commanded thee, and no man shall pierce thee. Open thy mouth, and it shall be filled, and I will give thee utterance, for all flesh is in my hands, and I will do as seemeth me good. Say unto this people: Choose ye this day, to serve the Lord God who made you. Behold my Spirit is upon you, wherefore all thy words will I justify; and the mountains shall flee before you, and the rivers shall turn from their course; and thou shalt abide in me, and I in you; therefore walk with me."
"And so great was the faith of Enoch that he led the people of God, and their enemies came to battle against them; and he spake the word of the Lord, and the earth trembled, and the mountains fled, even according to his command; and the rivers of water were turned out of their course; and the roar of the lions was heard out of the wilderness; and all nations feared greatly, so powerful was the word of Enoch, and so great was the power of the language which God had given him."
