Share the gospel

Well this was a really different week. Coming right from general conference we had our stake conference. We were also with two other missionaries since Wednesday! This week we had some amazing lessons and found some really good new investigators.

Just last night we had a family home evening with our recent convert and her neighbors who we just recently started to visit. We had never been able to talk to the dad as he is always working and busy. The mom had accepted to learn more and said she would read the Book of Mormon. During our visits the family would always say that the dad would not accept this message, that he wouldn't change. When we invited him to the FHE it was 7 at night and we had planned to start at 7:30. Amazingly he and his family showed up. We talked and ate and got to know them and their beliefs. We watched the movie, Joseph Smith, Prophet of the Restoration with them. As the movie started we could feel the spirit so strong. By the end of the movie the father and his wife were in tears. They said we need to read the Book of Mormon because we want to know if it's true. They want to learn more and the father has accepted a baptismal date.

This gospel is amazing and perfect. It can and will change lives. Something so amazing should be shared! I would encourage each and every one of you at home to try to share the gospel in one way or another. Someone who you think isn't close to being ready might be like this father and the second he feels the spirit he understands why the message we share is so important. George Albert Smith said that our desire to share the gospel shows our individual conversion as a person. We know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and only through the ordinances of this church allows us to return to our Heavenly Fathers presence. SHARE IT!!!

I love you all so much and hope you have a great week!!!
