"...go, and sin no more." Please leave a comment.

John 8:7-11

7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Once every six weeks we have transfers. In these Transfer meetings we always have the awesome privilege to hear our mission President speak. His words this transfer meeting was so profound. He was talking about what President Packer (quorum of the Twelve) said to the group of Stake Presidents here in our mission. He told them that there sins are forgiven them. Well our mission president stood at the pulpit of our transfer meeting and in the name of Jesus Christ told us missionaries (around 200) that are sins are forgiven us. It was so incredible. The spirit was felt there so strong that it brought most of the missionaries to tears. It was as if we had heard the voice of an Angel.

It is amazing how when we follow the Commandments and serve others, we can be forgiven of our sins. Like in the scripture above, we have no right to Judge or Condemn anyone. We are all not perfect. That is why Christ had come, to pay the infinite price for us all. I want all my brothers and sisters to know that I love you guys so much and I wish nothing more for your peace and happiness. I don't judge any of you. You all are so amazing and the number one fact that makes that statement true is that you are a child of God. Always remember who you are. I love you guys. Love your Brother and Friend, Elder Michael Drews
