January Missionary Leadership Council
Wednesday and Thursday, January 25th and 26th, the Idaho Boise Missionaries were privileged to attend Zone Conference where we received inspired instruction by viewing a Special Missionary Worldwide Broadcast focusing on teaching the doctrines of Christ.
Speak of the Savior. Testify of Him. Speak of His doctrine, of faith in Him and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.” —
Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
Some changes were announced to help our missionaries become more effective.

How do you feed 100+ hungry missionaries two days in a row? Costco pizza of course!
“That doctrine of Christ is summarized in words that you all know very well:
Our purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.”

Meridian Idaho Temple
It was announced this week that the free public open house for the Meridian Idaho Temple will begin on Saturday, October 21, and continue through November 11, 2017, except for the Sundays of October 22 and 29 and November 5.
The cultural celebration will be held Saturday, November 18. The temple will be dedicated the following day on Sunday, November 19, in three sessions at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. The dedication will be broadcast to members of the Church in Idaho and the temple district. The three-hour block of meetings will be cancelled for that Sunday for those congregations to enable members of the Church to participate and focus on this sacred event.
The Meridian Idaho Temple was announced by Church President Thomas S. Monson at the Church’s April 2011 general conference. There are currently three operating temples in Idaho, in Boise, Rexburg and Twin Falls. The Idaho Falls Temple is currently being renovated and will open to the public to visit and tour this April before it is rededicated June 4. There are about 426,000 Latter-day Saints in Idaho.
The temple is located at 7345 North Linder Road, a few blocks north of the intersection of North Linder Road and Chinden Blvd.

We are truly blessed!
So in closing, allow us to quote a favorite hymn that pretty much sums up our feelings-
Because we have been blessed by thy great love, dear Lord
we'll share thy love again, according to thy word.
We shall give love to those in need;
We'll share thy love by word and deed;
thus shall our thanks be thanks indeed.
Have a great week!
