June 15, 2016 The book of Mormon is the word of God!

Week update. June 15, 2016
This week has been a pretty good one, really one of the best highlights is our investigator Alex. A couple of weeks ago he said his testimony of the Book of Mormon was questionable, he said he hadn't found anything wrong with it but he didn't t know if it was true or not. But that he would continue praying about it and thinking about it. And then in our most recent lesson with him he told us that as crazy as it sounds he believes the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. And he also said he believes that Joseph Smith was in fact a prophet. Which is great news, his current concern is he knows that these things are true but he also wonders if other churches are true as well, so we are going to be heading that up soon. It's amazing to see his progress from when we first met him and he thought Mormons were a cult to now. It's been awesome. One thing that I've been thinking about this week is how cool captain Moroni is, I am striving to be like him. Because, “the devil had no power over him” which is pretty neat. So I'm working on trying to be like him in addition to Christ like attributes. Also one thing that has been on my mind is how we often profess to have the faith to do big things and we will do what is asked of us often if it's a big thing. But I've been thinking about how it's often we are asked to do the little things and how it requires less faith then say, leaving your home and moving west. But yet we all struggle to do them. So I've been trying to be more concentrated on showing my faith by doing the small things that are asked faithfully. Most of this week was fairly quiet but we are out and about. It's been a fairly cool week which has been nice! Anyways that is this week! Have a great week at Strawberry Days!
