The Book of Mormon- July 28, 2014

Family and Friends

Can it be that the clock is ticking faster? Because at least the clocks in Brasil are ticking so stinking darn fast, it feels like I was just here emailing you all!
This week has been full of miracles mixed with trials. But as always the miracles out weigh the trials!
This week the Lord has been showing me the incredible power of the words of God. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we accept and know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God alongside the Bible. To be clear the Bible is sacred and we don´t read the Book of Mormon in the place of the Bible we read them together. The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. The Bible and the Book of Mormon work together to proclaim to the world that Jesus Christ is our Savior, Lord, and King!

This week we had a lesson with a young man who recently joined the Church and he bore his testimony of the Book of Mormon. Before, his life was littered with drugs, alcohol, and smoking addictions. But once he found the Gospel of Jesus Christ he left all those things behind and changed his whole life. He is currently reading the Book of Mormon for the first time and he bore a powerful testimony of the truthfullness of the Book of Mormon. He said that he feels the love of God through the words that are written in the Book of Mormon. He also bore testimony that as he reads the Book of Mormon he feels God helping him stay away from his old life and giving him strength to continue on the right path. He has such a pure desire to share what has changed his life it brought me to tears. I too know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that we can feel the love of God through the written word of God´s prophets, just as in the Bible.
We also met a young girl who was so excited to hear about the Book of Mormon, she even made a promise to read it all. The sweet sincerity of this little girl showed me how lucky we are to have a second testimony that Jesus Christ is our Savior! There truly is power in reading the words of God!
Remember The Lord Loves You and The Church is True!
