Selwin and the Library Box

We found this little library box in a neighborhood where we were tracting
and realized there were no copies of the Book of Mormon
in it so I suggested we leave a few!
This week has been a good one.  We have stumbled across some people who actually seem interested in what we have to share.

So a few weeks back we met the Dickerson's, a really nice pair who are very open minded about things and so we have taken the opportunity to teach them the gospel. We went to see them on Saturday night as we usually do and decided we were going to teach them "The Plan of Salvation" from the beginning again since Marsue, the wife, was not there when we first started teaching.

And, oh boy, did that bring out a lot of questions.  Gladly we had and knew the answers to all of their questions. But it also gave me the opportunity to bear my testimony about God's plan for us and a part of that wonderful plan is the fact families can be together forever. I also shared with them how the devil's goal was to destroy families so we would lose happiness and be miserable like him. That hit a nerve and so Marsue started telling us of the many trials they are going through as a family.  It was sad to hear but we did promise both of them, if they read the Book of Mormon and continued to pray, those problems would be resolved and they would draw nearer to their Heavenly Father.  Please keep them in your prayers.

It's just an even greater testimony to me of how great God's plan is for all of us and how we can enjoy the blessings He has in store for us each and every single day of our life. God is not a partial God and His plan is complete and perfect.  It is up to us to choose whether or not we want to be apart of His plan or not; and, whether or not we are willing to follow His commandments and live the way He has asked us to live.  Is it a tough ask? Maybe, maybe not, but I know it's well worth it. "For I know that the Lord giveth no commandment unto the children of men, save He shall prepare a way for them to accomplish the things which He commandeth them" 1 Nephi 3:7.  Can't believe I'm actually remembering these things. I surprise myself a lot!
