Wk 74 April 4, 2011
Tired but still smiling.
So this week has been exhausting. We have been super busy lots of disappointments and some good too. We have still been working with Larry Uy. He is doing okay. I think the biggest thing now is that he needs a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I have learned a lot about the Book of Mormon this week.
We have spoken a lot this week with strong members of other faiths. It has been...intense. We met with an older man on Friday. His name is Victor and he is really good at English so we just speak with him in English. He is a big studier of the Bible. We talked with him for awhile. Then we have had the chance to learn about the Jehovah’s Witnesses. They are really big also on the Bible. But the thing is that each of them has their own interpretations of the Bible, and they are very far off from each. The thing is they can't accept that Heavenly Father could have any other scripture, such as the Book of Mormon. It just was a big eye opener to me of how super important the Book of Mormon really is. It’s either true of not, and if it isn't we have nothing, and if it is, we have everything. It’s kind of a big deal huh? It is kind of fun when people try to throw Bible versus at us saying that Joseph Smith couldn't have seen God, and then being able to say well.....have you read the Book of Mormon? They have no contest. The Book of Mormon really is the BOM (BOMB). Sometimes Elder Hadry and I will rap about how awesome the BOM is.
We have been able to have the privilege to be teaching a really awesome young woman. She is 19 and very intelligent, and has a huge desire to know if this is the true church. She reads everything that we give to her and teaches us about Joseph Smith and authority. She even came to church yesterday which was a huge highlight. We just gave her the Book of Mormon and challenged her to pray to her Heavenly Father to know if it is true. TOMORROW we will meet with her again.
Well, I have to get going fast. Didn't have too much time today to write sorry. But I love you all so much and I want you all to read the Book of Mormon. This Saturday and Sunday is our viewing of the General Conference. I’m excited. Next week talk to you again.
