So this past week we had Elder Cristoffel Golden come to our Mission to speak with us. Some of the cool things he taught us is that us, being set apart as Missionaries, are Ministers of Jesus Christ. As such, we have the power to confess it. If anyone who has not been properly tries to confess it, the Light of Christ will not recognize it and the people we talk to will be able to tell the difference. I know through prayer, I have gotten a confirmation that The Book of Mormon is True, that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and translated The Book of Mormon. I know that the Priesthood power to act in Gods name has been restored through Joseph Smith and is on the earth today. I know that anyone of you who asks God with a sincere desire to find the truth, will come to the same conclusion I have.
Another think that he brought up is that we as Missionaries have been called to bring the world the truth. Also, we are to convert people to the truth. It is not our primary purpose to gain a testimony, that is something we should have already, however, as we help others by studying and teaching, we will be able to strengthen our testimony. I know the Lord has called me to be a teacher for him. It is my job to allow the Holy Ghost to work through me to help those around me. That being said, I do feel like my testimony has become stronger the more I teach.
I love you all. I hope you have a great week.
