(Just a note: The LDS church doesn't charge members for any services or ordinances, and the clergy are all volunteers. It refers to the many instances in the Bible - and Book of Mormon - where those who were doing the Lord's work turned down money and those who charged for their services were said to be involved in "priestcraft". Please know - we are not judgmental of paid clergy - but just VERY different for Brett to hear about this happening when he grew up that his bishops and priesthood leaders were not paid. He knows that Priests are paid in the Catholic church - but I guess he didn't realize that many charge for services and ordinances, such as baptisms. See THIS LINK.)
I also helped give a blessing to a 2 year old who had some type of blood disease/cancer. Its was sad because she was crying after having to take some medicine and then we took out the oil and she started to cry again because she thought it was more medicine, but once we started the blessing, she calmed right down.
Well thats about it for this week! Still in the Lord's work!
