  1. The Church has been in Vietnam for 50 plus years and the mission was organized a few years back. It would be cool if they built a Temple there, Pres. Nelson is going there as we speak!
  2. they eliminated zone conferences? wow! I asked the missionaries here if that happened but they haven't responded yet
  3. https://www.thechurchnews.com/global/2019-11-15/missionary-handbook-lds-mormon-disciple-jesus-christ-166744?fbclid=IwAR1WKEGPt5_W1N-_CLK_c1lXFl6qxxj_TSLcYpPn-TsIUc07eU8CIr2M9bs They have the new missionary handbook out now. I take there has been some changes
  4. How would missionary work be different from the Gathering of Israel? Aren't the fruits the same? i.e. people taught, baptized/Holy Ghost etc.?
  5. I don't think Elijah committed any keys, I read it as saying he allowed Joseph and Oliver to turn the key they already got from Peter, James and John
  6. In section 110:11 we read of Moses giving the Keys of the Gathering of Israel "from the four parts of the Earth" Previous to this missionary work was done in the US and Canada but did this giving of the Keys signal international missionary work? we know in 1837 6 or 7 brethren went to England and then on from there, or was the giving of the keys of the gathering something else? Also why wasn't the keys given to gather Israel before, in 1836, when missionary work was done in the US and Canada? Are keys needed specifically for international areas or?
  7. and 6 hours? who has the time?! I get these issues aren't cut and dry but 6 hours 🛌
  8. I think the Church is in flux and, which is great, I think too that "old school" members are going to have to reshapen their beliefs about these concepts (especially with women and priesthood) that they have held for years and it's good, we all should be like that. I have found the more rigid we hold to things the more testimony brittle we can become. It's like that in life too, with jobs etc.
  9. AL? as in Weird Al? It would equally be weird if it was AL Jolson
  10. soup kitchen, plus every year we do a huge food drive for this food bank here
  11. Anybody know if he is still a member?
  12. Our Stake has a Bishop's storehouse but we are encouraged to volunteer in the community
  13. We've been instructed to use the proper name of the Church instead of saying, Mormon or LDS or something but how do we balance that with Section 107:4 “But out of respect or reverence to the name of the Supreme Being, to avoid the too frequent repetition of his name, they, the church, in ancient days, called that priesthood after Melchizedek, or the Melchizedek Priesthood." How do we balance using the proper name of the Church but avoiding the too frequent repetition of his name? I doubt the Lord wants us to say it less but where’s the line between the two?
  14. if people think the apostasy didn't happen try organizing something and see how many million questions you get of stuff you literally just went over, literally. just. went. over. I can't even imagine trying to keep together a fledgling Church spread all over the place, I have no problem believing the apostasy happen.
