Our stake is mentioned near the end of this article.
I know #PresidentMonson wishes he could be amongst the Saints physically. It is exciting to think of the message #PresidentEyring, #PresidentUchdorf, and the Prophet will bring to the World while tempests rage. #LDSConf
Fellow Saints, The Fayetteville NC West Stake Family has been charged to surge in the coming days and weeks in support of the on-going recovery efforts for Hurricanes Harvey & Irma. Many of you have answered the call to serve. Thank you. Due to the ever-changing environment during disasters, information and guidance adapts with the conditions. So, too, has some of the information leading up to our involvement to take phone calls via the CrisisCleanup.org site. The CrisisCleanup.org site enables us to "take calls" from those calling the 1-800 number that need cleanup efforts. Taking these calls and documenting the needed assistance is what drives the efforts of cleanup crews to do chainsaw work, muck-outs, etc. We look forward to your steadfastness in serving our brothers and sisters in the affected areas. In preparation for this assignment from our Area Authority, we invite ALL adult members to participate in the required in-person training that will be offered twice this week, at two separate locations outlined below. Thank you for your efforts in "going to the rescue" and enabling others to also do so! Sincerely, Pres. David Chandler Pres. Jason Parker Pres.

Many of us served our fellow man effected by Hurricane Matthew last year which in turn provided many blessings in the form of missionary opportunities. The Saints serving our brothers and sisters in Texas are experiencing the same. We can help from afar through President Chandler and Bro. Hansen's invitation to serve, from the comfort of our homes, taking calls and creating work orders.

I'm trying to connect with a senior officer (Lt. Col. and above) who works at Fort Bragg's Special Operations Command; preferably a member of the Church. This is regarding representing an armored, close combat, drone project I'm developing to the Special Ops Command people at Fort Bragg.. I'm posting this from Utah. Any help would be greatly appreciated. email: [email protected]

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Francis Brown Wai. Francis served during World War II.

Francis attended Sacramento Junior College before transferring to the University of California, Los Angeles. At UCLA, he was a four-sport athlete and graduated in 1939 with a bachelor's degree in banking and finance. He planned on working alongside his father in real estate and banking, but joined the Army upon the outbreak of World War II. Francis, who received rank as captain, sacrificed his life after assuming command during combat in the Philippines. On Oct. 20, 1944, while pinned down by enemy fire, he exposed himself and was killed while leading an assault to destroy the final Japanese pillbox in the Leyete area.

For paying the ultimate sacrifice, Francis received the Distinguished Service Cross. After the reconsideration of Asian American military records, Francis was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor and the Purple Heart. Currently, he is the only Chinese-American Veteran to have been given the Medal of Honor. On Oct. 11, 2014, his alma mater inducted him posthumously into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame.

We honor your service, Francis.

As Florida recovers from Irma, Jacksonville has historic flooding — and might get more

Work orders for Hurricane Harvey victims are growing exponentially and the orders will only increase as the affects of Irma become known. We are in dire need of members to man the crisiscleanup.org hotline. Our stake has been asked, in particular, to make a concerted effort to man it during the week of Sept 25-30. -- President David Chandler

Life After War and Overcoming Post-Traumatic Stress

The Taylor brothers have always been close, but enduring war, post-traumatic stress, and heroin addiction together brought them closer to each other and closer to Jesus Christ than they ever imagined possible.

“Growing up, we were involved in everything together,” says Chris, Mitch’s older brother. “He pretty much followed me everywhere I went, and he kind of mirrored all of the stuff that I was doing, for good or for bad.”

After Chris decided to serve in the army, Mitch did too. When Chris returned from Afghanistan and Mitch returned from Iraq, they both suffered from post-traumatic stress and became closed off, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Chris self-medicated with OxyContin prescribed to him for a back injury. Then he turned to heroin. Mitch began using as well, eventually becoming homeless. They hid each other’s addictions.

It wasn’t until Chris was hospitalized for complications with heroin that he decided to submit his will to Jesus Christ. When he did, he felt overwhelming peace and comfort.

“He knew what I was going through, and He put His arms around me and lifted my soul. And he took those burdens away from me, almost immediately,” he says.

When Mitch saw his brother begin to change, he realized he had to do something to change too. Like his brother, Mitch couldn’t recover until he turned to Christ.

“I felt like I was in this thing alone my whole life, but I wasn’t. … He cares for me, even when I can’t care for myself. In a world where everything is so dark and everything makes you feel like you’re alone, that’s been my anchor. … The Savior literally saved my life.”

The Will of God

God uses love-inspired correction to guide us to a future we do not or cannot now envision but which He knows is the better way for us.

https://www.lds.org/media-library/video/2012-01-014-the-will-of-god?lang=eng&_r=1&category=topics/faith&cid=HP_TH_4-5-2017_dPFD_fMLIB_xLIDyI-2_

God uses love-inspired correction to guide us to a future we do not or cannot now envision but which He knows is the better way for us.

[05/08/17]   "The more I come to know my Heavenly Father, the more I see how He inspires and leads His children. He is not angry, vengeful, or retaliatory. His very purpose—His work and His glory—is to mentor us, exalt us, and lead us to His fulness.

God described Himself to Moses as “merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth.”

Our Father in Heaven’s love for us, His children, surpasses by far our ability to comprehend.

Does this mean that God condones or overlooks behaviors that run contrary to His commands? No, definitely not!

But He wants to change more than just our behaviors. He wants to change our very natures. He wants to change our hearts.

He wants us to reach out and take firm hold of the iron rod, confront our fears, and bravely step forward and upward along the strait and narrow path. He wants this for us because He loves us and because this is the way to happiness.

So, how does God motivate His children to follow Him in our day?

He sent His Son!

God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to show us the right way.

God motivates through persuasion, long-suffering, gentleness, meekness, and love unfeigned. God is on our side. He loves us, and when we stumble, He wants us to rise up, try again, and become stronger.

He is our mentor.

He is our great and cherished hope.

He desires to stimulate us with faith.

He trusts us to learn from our missteps and make correct choices.

This is the better way!" -- Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear, By President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

[05/07/17]   Sister Eliza R. Snow, the second General Relief Society President, testified, “If any of the daughters and mothers in Israel are feeling in the least [limited] in their present spheres, they will now find ample scope for every power and capability for doing good with which they are most liberally endowed.”

So, what “extraordinary thing” will you choose to do? Choose something according to your available time and resources. “Do not run faster or labor more than you have strength and means … but be diligent.”19 Whether your “work of salvation” is largely in the home at this time in life or your influence extends to a global scale, or somewhere in between, the Lord is pleased with your efforts when you are focused on serving God’s children and the eternal goal of returning to Him as a “new and improved” version of your spiritual self. As President Dieter F. Uchtdorf phrased it so succinctly, “Exaltation is our goal; discipleship is our journey.” - “How Vast Is Our Purpose” By Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society General President

Worldwide Devotional for the Young Adults tonight! www.lds.org

[05/03/17]   "The effort to throw off traditions of distrust and pettiness and truly see one another with new eyes - to see each other not as aliens or adversaries but as fellow travelers, brothers and sisters, and children of God - is one of the most challenging while at the same time most rewarding and ennobling experiences of our human existence." - Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Why It Will All Work Out | LDS.org Blog

lds.org Overcoming fear requires a divine power, and we gain that power as we choose to act first in faith.

Henry B. Eyring

I remember once a seven- or eight-year-old son of ours jumping on his bed hard enough that I thought it might collapse. I felt a flash of frustration, and I moved quickly to set my house in order. I grabbed my son by his little shoulders and lifted him up to where our eyes met.

The Spirit put words into my mind. It seemed a quiet voice, but it pierced to my heart: “You are holding a great person.” I gently set him back on the bed and apologized.

Now he has become the great man whom the Holy Ghost let me see 40 years ago. I am eternally grateful that the Lord rescued me from unkind feelings by sending the Holy Ghost to let me see a child of God as He saw him.

The unity we seek in our families and in the Church will come as we allow the Holy Ghost to affect what we see when we look at one another—and even when we think of each other. The Spirit sees with the pure love of Christ.

The Just Shall Live by Faith - Liahona April 2017 - liahona

"The Apostle Paul, quoting an Old Testament prophet, summarized what it means to be a believer when he wrote, “The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17).

Perhaps in this simple statement we understand the difference between a religion that is frail and ineffectual and one that has the power to transform lives.

But to understand what it means to live by faith, we must understand what faith is.

Faith is more than belief. It is complete trust in God accompanied by action."

Q&A: Mormon grandmother, refugee camp manager never stops caring for others

"I wish Americans understood that the people who have left their countries, that the decisions they've made have been made with the most courage that I've ever seen. That they're not coming here to take your job, they're not coming here to bomb your place. They are coming here because they are running from bombs, from Daesh (ISIS), from the Taliban, from seeing their husbands and their sons and their brothers and their fathers being blown up or being conscripted. If you can't see what they're running from in Syria, you absolutely aren't watching the news.

They are an asset to communities. That's what I want people to know. Stop being so worried, stop being so hateful. Stop it! Get to know them. Spend 10 minutes talking to one of them. Get to know who they are before you pass these judgments."
