Alma Chapter 26

As I close out my mission I turn to Alma Chapter 26. Ammon is so thankful unto his God for being able to go amongst their enemies the Lamanites and change their hearts. he and his brothers Himni, Aaron and Omni have spent 17 years in the mission field with the Lamanites. Ammon does not boast in their conversions of the Lamanites but he glories in the Lord who was with them every step of the way as they were imprisoned and other harsh treatment but were highly successful in serving the Lord. Darolyne and I have served 18 months and almost every day we were able to teach someone that did not know about our Church. Today I taught two ladies from New Brunswick, Canada. a couple of days ago they just decided to go to Utah because they have heard about the beauties there. Then they happen to somehow get to Jacobs' house and here the story of this great indian missionary. When they left they
took with them a Book of Mormon. Also I taught a non member from Ohio who just moved here to live. He had a Book o Mormon but wants to learn all he can about the Mormon Church. He said he would probably join but he can't go on a mission. I told him he didn't have to go on a mission. That was a good moment. Who knows if we had any influence on all these guests or some of them, but I know that in many cases the Holy Ghost bore record of the truth because the Holy Ghost can only bare record of the truth. Yesterday at the Visitor Center I met a young couple from Germany after talking to them for a short time i took them and introduced them to Sister Gruenfeld a missionary from Germany. She taught them well and they left with a Book of Mormon in German and a referral card. These sites are truly places where people come off the street from all over the world and for the first time are taught the truths of the Church. Goodbye Jacobs
