This morning, Elder Gowans took the car in to the KIA dealership to have it readied for our trip home: Oil change, tires rotated, coolant and transmission flushed, hoses, brakes, tires inspected and so forth. It was about a 3 hour process. During that time he reviewed the institute lesson for this evening. He then did some reading in Psion Delta. During this time, Sister Gowans was baking cookies for Sunday.
We had a terrific lesson covering the mission of Enoch as found in the book of Moses chapters 6 and 7 in the Pearl of Great Price. We asked the question, "Why did God reveal this account of Enoch to the Prophet Joseph Smith?" We concluded that it is to help prepare us to become a Zion people. Another purpose would to be to show us that the Plan of Salvation, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, was the same back in the day of Adam as it is today. Back in the day of Adam, Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism and receiving the Holy Ghost was just as critical to their salvation as it is to ours today.
Afterward, Elder Gowans took the Elders to see President Estep and to give him a blessing of health; he is quite ill.
