Find out if the Book of Mormon is True


I have a car again! We got in on Wednesday. That was pretty nice.

I went on Exchanges this week with Sister Bl. She's a pretty awesome missionary. I learned a lot.

We're trying really hard to do daily contact with our investigators. It's really hard. But we can see the difference in the people who do let us talk to them or come by every day. They progress so much faster! And we can tell who is actually interested and who is not. Because the ones who are interested are totally fine with us coming by. Some of the other people are almost annoyed. So we'll drop them soon. We only have time for the elect!

This has been an interesting week of the Word of Wisdom. We have some investigators with WOW problems. We keep on catching one of them in the act of smoking. The other once we see her cigarette butts in her special hiding spot. We're working on it. The other, we're helping her dejar de tomar cafe. She says it's not a problem if it's not around her. Right now we're sending her texts everyday reminding her to not drink it. That's part of the problem too. But she really wants to stop! For health and spiritual reasons. Her dad is the one we keep on catching smoking. He smokes like 10 a day. So we committed him to only smoke 9 a day. Then we are going to weasel it down. Her friend, has a problem with coffee too. But we're trying to get her on Pero. It's an all natural coffee substitute. Totally WOW approved. 

We got three investigators to go to a baptism this week! The spirit was super strong. I know it's not a thing in PMG (Preach My Gospel) but I believe in receiving revelation through attending baptisms. Seriously. The talks and testimonies were for them. Totally. It was awesome. We just got to get them feeling ready for baptism. AKA get them to read, pray, and go to church. Seriously people, why is this a problem. Do you understand what significance it has if this church is true? Like life saving/eternal salvation significance. Why not just try to know if it is true? Why not? What do you lose if you try? So here's my challenge for everyone who doesn't know this church is true. I don't care if you are a member, if you are investigating, or if you are some random guy on the internet reading this. Find out if the Book of Mormon is true. Read it. You don't have to read all of it. But read a part of it. I don't even care what part you read. Then, find a quite spot, kneel down, and pray to God asking if the Book of Mormon is true. Ask with the intent to follow whatever God tells you to do. Then wait. Wait for a feeling. Listen to the Spirit. I know if you do this, with the intent of listening and wanting to do God's will. You will know that the Book of Mormon is true. If the Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith was a prophet. If he was a prophet, then this is the only church with God's authority. This is the only true church of God. When you do this, I invite you to be baptized by someone holding the priesthood authority of God. Because if this church is true, this is the only way to live with God again. That is my invitation. Don't believe me? Read Moroni 10:3-5. Still don't? Pray and ask God. Don't believe me. Don't believe your parents. ASK GOD. He is the only one who can tell you the truth. So ask Him.

I'll get off my soapbox now.

This week was good, but I don't have a lot of stories from it. So sorry.
