I now understand how people become inactive. They stop reading the Book Of Mormon. This book is the keystone of our religion, it brings us to closer to Christ. Joseph Smith testified, "I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct book on the earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." When people stop reading they stop nourishing their spirit and they start drifting away. For example we met with a sister and we asked if she reads the scriptures she said yes the Bible everyday. Then we asked the about the Book Of Mormon and she said very little. She said the Bible is my favorite. Because she is so focused on the Bible she has fallen away from the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We told her to read the Book Of Mormon more and more everyday. I don't get how people stop reading about the Book Of Mormon. This book brings us closer to the spirit and directs our paths. It is the greatest book on this earth. Joseph Smith found comfort in the Book Of Mormon before he died. I'm also learning the Bible doesn't have all the answers but together as I have said before both books support each other and both are necessary to teach and learn about the full and complete doctrine of Christ. I testify the Book Of Mormon is sacred and powerful and provides every answer. I always find myself praying and receiving inspiration to look in the Book Of Mormon for answers. If you want to strengthen your testimony read the Book Of Mormon. Drink from the waters of the Book Of Mormon and feast upon the words of Christ. You can truly see a difference in the investigators who read the Book Of Mormon and those who don't. The ones who read will understand almost anything we are teaching them.
Yesterday I bore my testimony. I have never shared a testimony with that much conviction and power. I knew I have always had a testimony and known the church is true and had a firm testimony to build on. But yesterday was a testimony of a lifetime for me. Yesterday is where I received my true testimony. I can say with all my faith I truly have a foundation that can handle any storm and a foundation that is so firm I can finally build more and more on. My testimony has grown and I have the foundation of a testimony that Heavenly Father wants me to have. It was also one of the hardest testimonies to give. Before I started to speak I begin to cry. I thanked the rama (branch) for their love and I told them that this rama has the pure love of Christ and then my tongue was loosed, it was amazing. I have never said things with so much convection and power. As I looked down upon the congregation and looked at the people who have been with me since day one, I saw they had tears in their eyes. Yesterday I had a glimpse of how strong Joseph, Ammon, and Peter's testimonies were. I know salvation is not cheap and this church is the hardest most difficult church in the world but the rewards from la iglesia de jesucristo de los santos de los últimos días is the most rewarding. The greatest reward we receive is eternal life. This church is true. I have seen investigators receive that knowledge and are some what confused because of how powerful that knowledge is. Stay strong and read the Book of Mormon every single day!!! It will change your life.
What I love about Mom is she was able to get me two pics from Gramma's and what I love about Dad is he helps me with my money.
Love You So Much, Ducks Forever!!!
