Oct. 3rd, 2011

This week at District Meeting, we practiced revelation through the Book of Mormon. It was so cool and the spirit was strong. What we do is we role play and I was the investigator. I choose an investigator that we are teaching and we try our best to get into their shoes and we receive revelation for them as we do it. It is really cool. So what we do with the Book of Mormon is we ask our investigator if they have any question that they would like answered. We then tell them to pray and ask Heavenly Father the question and to receive their answer through the Book of Mormon. When the prayer is over, we just have them open the Book of Mormon to a random page and start reading. Their questions get answered! It is seriously so cool. I tried it myself later that day and I prayed to know why we hadn't been seeing a lot of success. I asked to know if it was me, and what I needed to do to bring more souls unto our Heavenly Father. I opened in my Spanish Book of Mormon (Because I don't know what it is saying right away, so I wouldn't be biased when I chose a random verse) I opened randomly and started reading. I was in Alma Chapter 26 and started at verse 26 and just read until about verse 31. It was exactly what I needed! Please go and read the verses, it was just a really comforting experience and I know the Lord wants to answer our prayers. We just need to have faith and ask him a specific question and be willing to wait for the Lord's timing.
Conference was great this past weekend. It is amazing how much love the prophet and apostles have for us and for the gospel. I know that they are all chosen of God to lead us today. I loved it!
Well out of time, Love you and miss you all! Thanks for the letters and prayers!
Love, Elder Christiansen
