We had a great week. The tender mercy that God gave us was when we stopped by to visit with this man named J.B. He related to us that he had been praying that we would come back. The spirit that he felt the last time the missionaries were there, he had been praying for our return. Meanwhile, his close friend had passed away, without baptism, concerning him further.
He was wondering about the state of his soul as well as that of his friend. We taught him the Great Plan of Salvation, how he could participate personally, by being baptized, doing his own genealogy and family history.
We taught him that he could do this work of finding his own ancestors. He could help (by proxy) get sealed to his wife who also had passed on, through Priesthood Authority and Holy Temples. Upon receiving these truths from us, J.B. started to cry. Through his tears he said, “I want to do this!” “When can I do this?”
We taught the process of repentance. Teaching that the Savior calls all men to repentance, and that everything will be made right by the Atonement of Christ. That all men must follow in His path…
What a blessing to be a part of this week with J.B.
