Three New Investigators

We found three new people this week. They are kids, but they’re parents are non members. One of their daughters is going to girls camp at the end of June and they wanted her to learn more about what we believe before she goes. Her two younger sisters wanted to listen too and we started teaching all of them! We know that the parents are seriously considering becoming members as well. We found a family! It’s been a great week and that’s the biggest miracle that has happened so far.
 
I was reading in the first epistle of John and it talked about the basic necessity to receiving answers to our prayers:
 
“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth…And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” -1 John 3:18, 22
 
We must be obeying the commandments that we received from Jesus in the New Testament before we can receive an answer that Joseph Smith was His prophet and that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. Once we work on the Ten Commandments and others in the New Testament, we receive answers and have to work on the new commandments received from God through Joseph Smith.
 
“We believe that God exists, and He exists because we exist.” -Koizumi Itsuki (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
