Come to Institute

Welcome to Institute!

This week on the Ocean YSA Branch Weekly is dedicated to catching you up on the first few weeks of Institute. Our new teacher Lisa Muirhead is a wonderful teacher, and everyone ought to come. She is a great servant of God too busy to address us, but Lisa has delegated me to address the Santa Cruz area of California, concerning what Institute is.
This year Institute is a bible study, covering the Old Testament. Since General Conference, the second scripture mastery versus of the Book of Mormon that I memorized helps us understand the points that Sister Muirhead. The versus is 1 Nephi 19:23.

"And I did read many things unto them which were written in the books of Moses; but that I might more fully persuade them to believe in the Lord their Redeemer I did read unto them that which was written by the prophet Isaiah; for I did liken all scriptures unto us, that it might be for our profit and learning."

This versus tells us exactly what we are doing in the class. We are reading many things from the Books of Moses, dissecting the word of God to understand the real restored truths revealed to us by our modern prophets.
We will be reading from Isaiah; however, the main purpose is to "liken the scriptures unto us, that it might be for our profit and learning." Since the beginning, this goal has directly been address. Lisa applies the word of God to us as a great source of strength that all the young single adult saints need. I will write a brief summary of each class up until this week, so you may catch up and join us this coming Thursday at 7 pm at the Stake Center.
