Monday, June 30th, 2014

We have been very blessed and it has been wonderful to get to see some people again from Oslo and all around at the zone conference. We had a great zone conference in Oslo about using the Book of Mormon to answer people’s concerns and help them be converted. It has caused me to really ponder how grateful I am for the Book of Mormon. There is an incredible power in that book that has touched my life profoundly and has helped me know that God lives and has restored His church to the earth. One can have many intellectual questions and different opinions; however, the spiritual power of the Book of Mormon and the witness of the Holy Ghost that will be given to anyone who reads it, ponders it and prays to God the Father in the name of Christ asking the truth of it with a sincere heart, faith in Christ and real intent is undeniable.

We must always continue to build our testimonies and grow in our understanding. If we do so, we will all feel the incredible power of the Book of Mormon, which is indeed the power of God. I am so grateful to be able to share the restored gospel with my brothers and sisters. It is a joy to be able to be a part of this incredible saving work. I know that Heavenly Father is guiding us. He is involved in this work. We are not alone. It is indeed an incredible blessing to know that Heavenly Father is watching over and helping each and every one of us. It makes all of the other concerns in life so insignificant to know that Christ is our Savior and that His church is restored. The way is indeed simple, but it requires faith and diligence on our parts. I know that it is the time for us all to come together and move this work forward to gather scattered Israel and serve our brothers and sisters. The Norwegian word of the week is bekfreftelse, which means confirmation.
