We had Zone Conference this week and we focused primarily on our personal testimony to the Book of Mormon. It was full of awesome training from our leaders and President and Sister Palmer. I am so glad that we have these meetings (zone conference, zone training, and district meeting) because we can always be improving. It was an eye opener to me and I had to make some changes to my studies and focus on the Book of Mormon more.
We had a lesson with an excommunicated member and all we wanted to do was to read with him from 1 Nephi 8. He agreed reluctantly but by the end of the chapter he was asking questions and sharing insights. He even shared his recently baptized grandson’s favorite scripture with us (2 Nephi 32:3)! It was so cool to see how the Book of Mormon can bring the spirit into someone’s life. I know that if we study from it daily, regardless of for how long, that we can receive a greater portion of God’s spirit to be with us. If we are sincere and have desire to have our questions answered then we will receive those answers.
We are getting busier and busier which is a great thing! We are so blessed to be serving here and touching the lives of those around us. What a privilege it is to represent the Savior.
You guys are all awesome!
