Remembering Those Who Were Saved From Bondage

It was back to work today. The PRISM Conference could be a great success for our company. One company in South America asked for a quote for a 500,000 Container System. Another company, who is a customer of ours in Columbia, has reported that he received calls from two companies, one in Venezuela and another in Columbia, that they want to visit him, to see what how our software is helping his company. It seems that a lot of people in South America were impressed by our software!

This evening, for Family Home Evening, we went to a Mission Farewell for a Bishop and his wife, who are going to Japan on their Mission. Then, we came home and watched a couple of episodes of ‘Hunter’.

I reflect at this time the captivity of my fathers, when Moses and the tribes of Israel were captive under the rule of the Pharaoh of Egypt, as it is recorded in the Old Testament, in the Book of Exodus. I think about how the Lord had Moses say to the Pharaoh, “Let my people go!” The Shepherd was calling His flock, and His children. Most of us have ancestors who were held captive by Egypt, and have we forgotten them, and the faith that they needed to have in order to be released from their bondage? I certainly do: everytime I sin, and forget the price I paid so that I could be free. Also, I forget the price the Jesus paid for me when He bled in Garden of Gethsemane, and died on the cross, for me.

Remembering the bondage of others is mentioned in Alma 5:5-9. Even though these verses have to do with the bondage of those in the Book of Mormon. These same spiritual principles are true for our fathers who were in bondage, in Egypt.
