On Sunday, the Riverside ward had a missionary homecoming. His name is Steven Slater and he served in Argentina and just got back this past week. We talked to him a bit after church and he said that he had a non member best friend that he wanted to invite to take the lessons. Later in the day he texted us and asked if we could go to the church and teach his friend that night! We were excited to meet him and we taught him the Restoration right there and the spirit was amazing. We asked Steven to bear his testimony and it was amazing to see how his mission has changed his life and how much he wanted his friend to have the same joy that he has. He committed to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it and it was an incredible lesson.
Bearing your sincere testimony is one of the most powerful influences you can have on someone. The spirit will always testify of the truth of what you are saying to them. As we stand up as representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and show others how important our beliefs are to us, we can have a powerful affect on those that around us. Love you all and hope all is well!
