Great Week :)

This week has been just fantastic, no crazy stories this time thank goodness...We spent a lot of time at the hospital giving blessings. One investigator called us and said she was going into emergency surgery in a few minutes and wanted a blessing, by some miracle we got passed the doctors and ER and found her to give her a blessing, she was so grateful. Then we found out that the hospital had a little chapel/meditation room and we walked in and it was full of JW literature....so we changed that and added some truth to the room;)
My testimony of the Book of Mormon has really grown this week. The pastor family we're teaching got into some heavy anti, they had articles and scriptures all ready for us when we got there, not to bash i would say, but definitely lots of questions. I was not worried at all, I received a promise that nothing would stand against the Book of Mormon. They started they're arguments and scriptures and articles and it was just sad. They imploded on themselves, everything they said they had to back track and try to explain, they were fighting themselves, it was chaos. I finally interrupted and said, "I don't follow the God of chaos and your doctrine is twisting your own tongues into a confusion that doesn’t come from God. You've taken His personality, His glory, and His role as the Father out and then have told us that it doesn’t really matter if we understand it at all, but that is false because THAT is life Eternal, to KNOW the one and true God, and Jesus Christ, who he sent."

 Every one stopped and the Spirit was there soo strong, they basically apologized. We then committed them to read the Book of Mormon without looking for faults. I told them that if I were to read the bible looking for mistakes God would give me no revelation, and they agreed to it. They also gave me a piece of literature from their church and I promised to pray about it. I had a really sacred experience praying about it, which just reinforced the Book of Mormon more.  Nothing can break this Book, it is the ONLY reason 18 year olds can go up against the world when we're backed up into a wall with all the anti Satan has mustered raining down on us, one thing stands between us and the devil, and that is the Book of Mormon.
