October 11, 2010 Story #2
A little more than a month ago we met Jesús while enjoying the lunch buffet at Telepizza. He was sitting alone and we decided to go talk to him. We invited him to the Young Single Adult Family Home Evening at the church later that week. He came, and after that Elder Adams and I began teaching him. During the last four weeks he has prayed, read from Book of Mormon, attended sacrament meeting, and even a session of General Conference. Throughout this time he has grown in his testimony and received a personal witness, by the power of the Holy Ghost, that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's true church, restored to the earth with priesthood authority, through the prophet Joseph Smith. He entered the waters of baptism on Saturday, October 9, 2010, and was confirmed a member of the Church and received the gift of the Holy Ghost yesterday, October 10, 2010.
There are a couple of pictures attached to this email. One picture of Jesús (who is wearing the glasses), Joel (who baptized him), Elder Adams and me, and the other of Jesús, Joel, Elder Hurley (the blonde one on the right), Elder Dunoskovic (Elder Hurley's companion), Elder Adams (my awesome trainer, who I'm standing next to), and me.
I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and has indeed been restored in our day through the prophet Joseph Smith. We have the opportunity to participate in our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness, to enjoy all of his blessings, and live together forever with our families.
I love you and thank you for all that you do, for who you are, and for who you are becoming.
