Happy Brazilian Independence Day Yesterday!No one celebrated. Not even a firework. The other sisters in our apartment remembered today and sang the Brazilian National Anthem during companionship study.
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to study the scriptures. I have been working on improving my study and mastery of the scriptures. Pres. Castro says that to master a scripture, you have to
1. Know the reference
2. Know the content (principles, doctrines, memorization)
3. Be living the principles contained.
Our mission has been making goals to master the scriptures in Preach my Gospel. It has really helped our lessons. When we teach with scriptures, we teach with power and authority and it adds spirituality to the lessons..
II Tim 3:16-17 says it all.
