This week has gone pretty good. We picked up an investigator, Jacque, who has had the lessons before. We found out that her children have been asking about God lately and she can't answer their questions and wants our help. She felt good about our answers, but still doesn't think it matters what religion you belong to. We started over with a lesson on Joseph Smith and the first vision. She told us later that she felt something inside as we spoke, but couldn't describe it. We had some members with us on this visit and they were really good about explaining what that feeling was and helped her put it into words. They told her the more we meet, the more she will have these feelings. Elder Sorenson also invited her to be baptised. She told him that she wanted to consult with her husband before committing. Our goal now is to meet with both her and her husband.
We met with another investigator, Darlene, that has issues with Joseph Smith's statment that the Book of Mormon is the most correct book. She really loves the Bible and now it is up to us to help her see how both the Bible and Book of Mormon work together. We are going to bring her some conference talks to read on this subject as well. We told her that the only way she is going to understand and believe in that statement is to test it out by reading the book.
I sure loved Conference too! I found a lot of inspiration and answers for things I had been thinking about. I was definitely uplifted, enlightened and edified.
I love you and I'll talk to you later, Elder Madsen
