We found they were very excited about all the changes and our new FOCUS as President Albright has called it. We are focusing only on PMG and our PURPOSE and then asking ourselves, "How does this (whatever we are doing) help my purpose.
Our purpose is found at the front of the PMG book and says:
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.
