Sunday, January 23, 2011

One of the best experiences of our lives has come to an end. This morning we reported to the Stake High Counsel. We spoke for about a half hour about our mission, our experiences, the people we worked with and the members we grew to know and love. We truly did have a wonderful mission.

We have lived a life filled with blessing from our Heavenly Father. Our calling to serve the people of the Dominican Republic was another one of his blessings. We have been so richly blessed over the past year and a half. We loved our mission; we love the people of the Dominican Republic and their beautiful country. We love the Elder and Sister missionaries we worked with and especially all of the office Elders we served so closely with over these 18 months. We especially love Pres. & Hna. Almonte; their kindness, generosity and leadership.

We bear testimony that this is the work of the Lord we have been engaged in for the past eighteen months. This is His gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church today. We testify that the true gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth through his divinely appointed prophet, Joseph Smith, Jr. in 1830. We testify that the “Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ” is divinely inspired scripture of the life, teachings and gospel of Jesus Christ. We exhort all that read this testimony to read “The Book of Mormon”; study it and pray for a witness of its truthfulness.
