Presidency's Message

     March came so fast, it caught us by surprise. We enjoyed visiting you and your Primary children for your ward and branch conferences. We delight in seeing the strength of the children of the Ely Nevada Stake. They have testimonies of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. They know who they are. They know the scriptures are true. They know how to make wise choices. They feel the Spirit testify of all things true and good. Thank you for helping them become righteous children of God.                                                     
     Our stake theme this year, "Holiness of Heart," reminds each of us to turn to our Father in Heaven and receive His council as we serve His children. As we listened to President Pitts share his vision for our stake, we felt the Spirit testify to us that, if we harken to his words and apply them in our lives, we will be able to accomplish everything the Lord has asked us to do.
     With you, we strive with unwearied dilligence and holiness of heart to:
  • develop a mind that learns and obeys our Father's will.
  • find a spirit that burns with the truth.
  • cultivate a heart that turns to the Savior.
  • prepare a soul to earn all our Father's blessings, now and forever.
     We pray that we will all enjoy the blessings of obedience, service, and righteous living. Please know how much we love you and pray for you. We appreciate your faithful service in the Kingdom of God on earth.
With love,
  Rolayne, Shauna, Cammie, and Kaylene
