Real Southern Cookin'

Hello Everyone!

This week went really well! We stayed really busy and a couple less-active's we've been working with came to church yesterday. We also went to a place called "Grady's BBQ" on Saturday for lunch. It was so delicious!

Our investigator from Haiti has been doing really well! He said he'd be baptized if he found out the restored gospel was true! We've been doing our best to help him feel the Spirit and progress in the gospel.

We've been working with a certain less-active each week for some time. Recently we started reading The Book of Mormon with him. (Alma 32-42) It has been wonderful! He's started to keep commitments of reading the Book of Mormon which he never would before. He also told us that he's starting to think of gospel-related topics throughout the week. He has been remembering a time in his life when he was quite active in the church. There is great power in The Book of Mormon! I know that it is inspired of God and truly an impacting missionary tool. In 2 Nephi 33:10 Nephi testifies that his words are the words of Christ.

"And now, my beloved brethren, and also Jew, and all ye ends of the earth, hearken unto these words and believe in Christ; and if ye believe not in these words believe in Christ. And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believe in these words, for they are the words of Christ, and he hath given them unto me; and they teach all men that they should do good."

I know that Christ loves us. He is so very real and He can help us so much in life. The Book of Mormon testifies of His divine mission and will bring us closer to Him. I invite each of you to make daily scripture study a part of your lives. I know that as you do, you will feel His love in greater capacity.

With Love,

Elder Rogers
