The Book of Mormon Brings Joy

This week has been a super good week. I had a really good Fourth of July. It was much improved from the one at the MTC. We actually got to see fireworks and watch the festivities. That was nice and fun.

Missionary work wise this area is really starting to cruise. We have been finding a lot of people who are ready for the gospel. We have one lady we just found who is ready to be baptized super soon. She is an aunt of some members. The work goes so much faster when the members are helping out.

One of the really cool guys we met this week is named Jose. He is an older guy and we met him and started talking to him about the Book of Mormon. He got way interested, but he cannot read the small font of the Book of Mormons we give out. So, we went to the apartment and got him a big one, with really big writing. This book is bigger than most of your lap tops. It is big. He could read it, and then, before we could explain much, we had to go to another appointment. We came back yesterday and talked to him about this book. He is so excited about it. He was even excited when he thought it was a book to replace the Bible, but when he found out we use both the Book of Mormon and the Bible, he got way excited. This is so good to see the blessings of the Book of Mormon and the joy it brings into people’s lives.
