Self discovery of the Gospel is beautiful.

It's been quite a while... Again. Not all the time do I manage my time on the computer.

On Monday we had a great lesson with this man. At first he was really skeptical about the church. When we visited him we had asked him if he had read from the Book of Mormon since the last time we had been there. He told us that he had! We had planned on teaching him about the Book of Mormon; but the Spirit took us a different way and we ended up teaching about the Restoration. I am grateful that we followed that prompting because we found out that Dan doesn't believe that there was a Apostasy on the earth. Which makes sense as to so many other things we are teaching him.

On Tuesday we had a mini Zone Conference. It was only 3 hours long. Which is short for us!! I've grown to love meetings. They always seem to help me one way or another. Having the mini missionaries with us really helped the work. There's something about it. To this day the most beautiful thing that I could ever witness on the mission is some one gaining a testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are teaching this man who is incredibly stubborn. He has been trying to prove that there is only one baptism and I that you shouldn't have to be baptized only once. Sister Crandall challenged him to find where it says that in the scriptures. So when we came back the next couple of days he had a whole list of scriptures to share with us. One of the scriptures that he read was 2Nephi 31. We asked him how he felt about it and he told us that that chapter was very enlightening. Overall we asked him if he was searching to know if Joseph Smith is Prophet and if the Book of Mormon is true. Guess what.... He totally is searching!

Self discovery of the Gospel is beautiful.

The longer I am out the more indebted I am to the Lord for this sacred opportunity to serve Him. I know that He loves us. The Father gave His only begotten Son for us.


Make this week a good one!
