On Sunday, we planned for the day and saw amazing miracles. We stopped by Nat, a semi Less Active 18 yr who is super cool. He and Elder Goodman bond really well, especially over soccer and he has come to some amazing lessons with us. We pulled up to Nat’s house, and right behind us, Nat and his family pull up! I can’t even believe the timing that the Lord gave us, but we were able to have a short conversation and I am so grateful for it. Afterwards, we went to visit another Less Active member, Br. Jean-Luis. He is from Haiti, but isn’t able to come to church. We had a great lesson with him, and really got to know more about him. It was a much needed visit and we were grateful that we caught him at home. Afterwards, a young kid walked past us and I felt like we could give him a BOM, so we caught him before he went far. As we were testifying, we asked him if he would be interested in this message and he said,”Absolutely! My family was just talking about this the other day. I’ll ask them and let you know”! It was an answer to prayer!! As we walked back to the car, we were on Cloud 9 and asked another guy if we could give him one. He gladly accepted it and is also super prepared. Later in the night, after chasing someone and missing them, we were freezing, but felt like we needed to place one more Book of Mormon. We knocked a house, but they weren’t too interested, so we went to the second floor, and they were Muslim, but took the Book of Mormon. We talked about prophets with them and how the Book of Mormon talks about prophets as well, which is part of their main beliefs. They said that they were readers and that they would check it out. After freezing so much and barely beeing able to move our mouths, we were so grateful that the Lord gave us this opportunity.
As we read the Book of Mormon and follow promptings, we can be able to 1. Receive the spiritual power we need 2. Solve any problem we have 3.Be able to touch others lives through the impressions we receive. I have a very strong testimony that personal, prayerful study of the Book of Mormon can enhance all parts of our lives. I invite you to start, if you already haven’t, a personal study of the Book of Mormon for at least 30 minutes a day, if not more. If you do, the blessings promised in President Monson’s last General Conference address will be yours. I love you all!! Like Shia LaBeouf,”Just Do It”.
