I hope everyone is happy and healthy today!
I honestly can’t believe another day has past by. It all seems to be a
blur. Some exciting news is that we picked up a family this week who
wanted us to come by and talk to their son because they were concerned
that he was spending too much time with his friends instead of his
family. So they thought family was really important! Perfect! Because
our church is all about families!! So we came over monday night and
had a small little family home evening with them and discussed the
importance of families in the church and in our eternal progression.
We challenged them to hold a family home evening every night to bring
their family closer together and we are going to meet with them
tomorrow to see how it went! I can’t wait to teach them more about
this gospel that will help strengthen their relationship as a family.
Interesting story for today:
I met the prophet of California! Haha there was this crazy lady on the
side of the street helping kids pick up trash on the roads and she
stopped us to ask if we were religious. We said yes we are from the
church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. So she went on saying how
she was the prophet of California and that there are prophets in each
state teaching different things and her job was to save everyone in
California from the El Niño. She told us that El Niño is going to take
out all the sinners in California and save the righteous but that El
Niño is not the end of he world! In fact (mark your calendars
everyone) the end of the world will be 7/7/17. Makes sense…. I
guess. I was thinking about what she said and I hope that I don’t
sound like that to people haha of course I’m not telling them that
they’ll be wiped out by a rain storm if they sin though.
One of my favorite talks as of right now is by Jeffrey R. Holland. “A
Testimony of the Book of Mormon” there is a video that goes along to a
section of it that is so profound. Gaining a testimony of Joseph Smith
is important and it can be done through reading the Book of Mormon,
praying with a sincere heart, with contrite spirit and having faith in
Christ that he will answer you. Then you will come to know that the
Book is true, and if the Book is true the Joseph Smith is a true
prophet and he did see God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. The
Book of Mormon is blessed revelation from God. It answers the
questions of the soul. And it healeth a wounded soul. I know the Book
of Mormon is true because I can turn to it at anytime and in any
situation I’m in and it comforts me and counsels me. I’m so grateful
for this amazing tool and the sacrifice that went into it from Joseph
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!
