March 10, 2014

Elder low's report:
This week I've been reading quite a bit in 2 Nephi, and had the opportunity to think about one of my favorite chapters, chapter 29, in which the Lord teaches us about the love he has for all people, that he speaks to all, and that this divine truth is central to the plan of happiness that he has set up for his children.

This Sunday we had 6 people committed to church but unfortunately none of them came. At first we were a little sad, but we had felt these people's desire to come to church and we weren't ready to give up on them yet. So right after church we started a post round-up. In the midst of the post round-up we came to a house of 4 investigators, 3 of which said they would come. The other one I felt was not progressing and therefore we shouldn't focus on, but when we got there that one investigator began to talk to us very sincerely about her desire to be forgiven of her sins and find God's truths. We testified of the forgiveness of God, the reality of Jesus Christ's mission on earth and that through the Book of Mormon we could know these things as well as God's true doctrine. We told her that through prayer she could even receive an answer from God about these things. The spirit was there and even though she had shown only a little desire to listen, something about the idea that she was valued in the eyes of God, and he would speak to her softened her heart. We invited her to read the Book of Mormon. With almost embarrassment she said she had a difficult time reading text written in older English. We promised her that if she put forth her effort God would help her and her eyes lit up.

I know that God does speak. The Book of Mormon is the proof. He will answer our prayers as he did even to the prophets of old.

Elder Low.
