Prayers for Elder Liljenquist - Mosiah 24:13-15

   Bryton wanted me to send a quick update on him. He did not have time to write due to having to answer a million questions from me. Last Tuesday, we got a call from Bryton's mission president. He was in the hospital. He needed emergency surgery to remove his appendix (little scary being in Mexico). He remained in the hospital until Saturday night due to some complications. He has had a rough time but is slowing improving. We still don't know why he was in the hospital SO long. Needless to say,we have spent most of the past week on our knees. We have had a few opportunities to speak with him. He is so brave and completely determined to finish his mission. He loves the people and loves the work....and he is super bugged that he has lost so much weight:) Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. He sends his love as always. 

Mosiah 24:13-15

"And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage.  And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions.  And now it came to pass that the burdens which were laid upon Alma and his brethren were mad light; yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord."

  1. Thanks for the update, Ashli and Jessica! We have been praying for Elder Liljenquist this last week and are relieved to hear that his condition is slowly improving. We love you and the work Bryton is about with the people of Mexico.
