This week started off the right way with MLC. Oh it's always a good time. ❤ We discussed for the majority of the time, the power of the Book of Mormon and how we can share it in unique ways! Also found this quote from Brigham Young , "No man can say that this book (laying his hand on the Bible) is true, is the word of the Lord, is the way, is the guide-board in the path, and a charter by which we may learn the will of God; and at the same time say, that the Book of Mormon is untrue; if he has had the privilege of reading it, or of hearing it read, and learning its doctrines. There is not that person on the face of the earth who has had the privilege of learning the Gospel of Jesus Christ from these two books, who can say that one is true, and the other is false" So I have challenge for all of you, every single one. Just like I invite those I am teaching I want to invite yall to pick up the Book of Mormon and read from it THIS WEEK! I can promise you that more peace will come into your life and you will feel closer to Jesus Christ! 😊
We had exchanges this week! Sister Soren came here with me! It was pretty great! We found a new investigator together 😊 Also no joke she looks like one of my roommates from byui and it really was throwing me off all day hahah
We taught SO many people this week. Sadly, not all of them wanted to set a return appointment BUT still miracles. Last night was a real great one. We were walking in this area and knocked on a door. This man comes out and we started a conversation with him. We asked " If the same church that Jesus Christ established while he was here, was here today, what would that mean to you?" And then he grabbed his wife, and eventually we got inside. We taught the full restoration and after sharing the first vision they told us that they felt the spirit (': So awe invited them to be baptized. And the man looked thrilled. The wife seemed scared to change. She turned it down. But we testified to them to pray and read the Book of Mormon, and to not forget the spirit they felt while meeting with us. Even though it didn't end the way we wished, we gave it our all and helped others come closer to Christ. We fulfilled our purpose.
Last miracle....... TAMMY AND HER GIRLS CAME!! Oh we were overjoyed!! 😭❤ Except the whole time we were so nervous about every word that came out of anyones mouth 😂 and in sunday school some member brought up some deep doctrine and we were a little panicked haha but it all ended well. The daughters liked young womans! We will hopefully get to see them on Saturday to start teaching them😊
"To those who have been offended or lost interest [in the Church], or who have turned away for any reason, we invite all of you to join in full fellowship again with us. The faithful members, with all their faults and failings, are humbly striving to do God's holy work across the world. We need your help in the great struggle against the powers of darkness so prevalent in the world today."
