The Power of a Witness

I want to tell you a story about a young man who went to go see a movie. This movie was really touching to the young man and wanted to share it wih everyone. He didn't share it with everyone because it was a good film to watch but this film brought him true happiness and it taught him great lessons and values.

This young man had an older sister off at college far far away from home. She too did go see the same movie that day. It moved her deeply and she also wanted to share that happiness with others.

As the young man went to his father, and as the young woman called the mother, the parents realized, as they dicussed with one another about their childrens opinions on the movie, that they both had two different opinions of the movie and different interests but the whole out look on the movie was the same that it both touched them deeply and it brought them a great happiness.

These two witnesses acted as one even though they were complete different stories it still was the same knowledge. That is why I am out on my mission. I have received a witness of my Savior that has brought an eternal happiness to me and i want to share it with everyone i can and that witness is the Book of Mormon.

I know that the Book of Mormon and the Bible are two witnesses of Jesus Christ. He is the Christ, he is our Savior and Redeemer, and that it is only through Him we can live with our Father in Heaven again. I know this because of the knowledge i have received from both books. Even though they both took place far from each other and the stories in each are different but that doesnt matter because they both testify of Christ and thats what truly matters.

I know that the Book of Mormon is true and i know that anyone who reads it with faith in Christ and a open heart, they will know that it is true and that our Savior lives and He loves us.

I challenge you to read the Book of Mormon if you havent yet and find out for yourself to know that He does live and loves us all!

I know this all to be true in His holy name, Jesus Christ, amen.

  1. The Book of Mormon is indeed another testament of Jesus Christ. It teaches the Savior's gospel and testifies of His divinity.
    I know for myself that the Book of Mormon is a true record. I know that Jesus Christ is our Lord and our Redeemer. I know He has again called and ordained prophets and apostles to lead His Church.
    If you will sincerely study the Book of Mormon you will come to know Christ better and you will gain a knowledge of His gospel.
