OFFICIALLY "ELDER DAVIS"
This morning Taylor was officially set apart as "Elder Davis" in our stake president"s office. His father, brother (Jonah), grandparents, and members of our bishopric and I were in attendance. After a wonderful discussion on what Taylor's responsibilities and the sacredness of them would be, he was set apart by his father, Pres. Delis, Bishop Floyd, Bro. Perry and both of his grandfathers. It was a very sacred experience.
He was set apart to represent the Lord Jesus Christ and his Church. As an Elder it will be his responsibility to “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.”
He will represent the Lord as a minister of the restored gospel and will be an official representative of the Church. He is expected to devote all of his time and attention to serving the Lord.
He is beyond excited to do this!
