Yesterday marked three months since the Sunday that I was set apart as a missionary, and this week will make three months since I've entered the MTC. It's crazy how time flies!
We had another Joint Zone Conference this week, which was focused on the importance of planning and the power that the Book of Mormon has. It was very inspirational to see how important the Book of Mormon is and how it applies to literally everybody on this earth.
I'm short on time this week, so I'll bear my testimony (which has grown immensely over the last three months). I KNOW that this church is true. Joseph Smith was a man called of God to be the prophet that would restore the very church Christ established when he walked the earth. Through the power of God, Joseph translated the Book of Mormon, which is the greatest book of all time. The book is so true, and is the greatest evidence that He was a prophet. Like Elder Holland says, "no wicked man could write such a book, and no man could write it, unless he was called of God." Like Elder Holland, I also testify of the truthfulness of that Book, of the Prophet Joseph Smith, and the church. I know, without a doubt, that all those things are true, and I do so in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Love you heaps,
Alma 42:15"And now, the plan of mercy could not be brought about except an atonement should be made; therefore God himself atoneth for the sins of the world, to bring about the plan of mercy, to appease the demands of justice, that God might be a perfect, just God, and a merciful God also."
- The Plan of Salvation is centered around the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It is a perfect plan, and shows the great love of our Heavenly Father, as well as His son, Jesus Christ.
