BOOK OF MORMON


In Our December Zone Conference President gave all of the Missionaries a paper
Back Book of Mormon and asked them to underline all of the references to Jesus Christ. He wanted them to underline all of His direct teachings, anyone quoting Him., any time He was being referred to by any of His names. President and I also enjoyed the assignment. It turned out to be a powerful experience for all of us. I personally was so grateful for the experience. It strengthened my testimony of the Book of Mormon as "Another Testament of Jesus Christ." It deepened my love for Him as I saw so vividly what a "hands on " Savior He is. He was speaking to, admonishing, blessing, endowing with Power, correcting, expressing love for, guiding, and teaching His children constantly. He loves us so much. I already knew that, but it was so vivid as I was underlining on every single page. We asked several of our missionaries to share their experience at the Zone conference in January. Here are a couple of quotes from them

Sister Missionary
I have learned how consistently He blesses those that are obedient and how consistently He is in our lives. I have felt my purpose more deeply –why I am here. I know more than ever before that He is the only Way. I know that He lives, that He came and was resurrected. It wasn’t just then but it is for now and for ever. It fills my whole being

ELDER

I learned that the Book of Mormon is true in more than one language. WE read Lord, Lamb of God, ......but as we focus on who is really speaking through the prophets -- who is teaching ----It is all our Savior

"It has made me want to be a better Missionary . It has intensified my focus. It has made me a better teacher. I can direct my investigators to The Savior—what he teaches—what he said.

We testify that God lives , that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, That They have appeared once again to man. That the plain and precious truths that Jesus Christ taught and the organization that He established when He was on the earth has been restored in it's perfection to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. We testify that the Book of Mormon is the word of God revealed to His prophets, that we have a prophet on the earth today Thomas S. Monson. We testify that the Priesthood Keys have been restored to seal families for eternity, and to Baptize in His name. We invite all to "Come Unto Christ"
