Hello Wonderful superb family!!
This week has been great! It has been really warm. The trees are blooming, flowers are growing. It is really pretty.
We had a good lesson with Bro Tom. He had read Enos and our lesson was on the Atonement so it fit great. We helped him, another day, with some yard work. He really appreciated it. When we stopped by yesterday to follow up with him, he told us that he had read that morning four chapters out of Mosiah. We were really excited for him. He has moved forward so much as opposed to previous years. Before he let us over for his wife, so she could have visitors. Now he is finding for himself that God is there. He is doing great.
We did a lot of finding this last week and found a lot of cool people. When we work hard the Lord will bless us.
We gave talks in church yesterday. Elder Walker spoke on the Prophet Joseph Smith. I spoke on the Book of Mormon. They were both good talks. I shared several points which the book of Mormon is and presented the challenge of "duplication." A collage professor at BYU came up with thirty points or characteristics of the Book of Mormon and stated that "What one man can create another can duplicate. The challenge the Book of Mormon makes is that of duplication. If written by Joseph Smith then anyone can write about ancient Tibet and claim it as factual history. Have over five hundred pages and over three hundred thousand words. Describe all aspects of life. Change the style of writing many times. Have over eighty thousand competent salesmen so sold that your book is the word of God that they give up two years of their life to spread it to the world. There are many more. Have a friend mortgage his farm so that it can be printed. Please have your book completed in sixty days. There is only one answer. It is an inspired book prepared by the hand of God. It is the Word of God.
You are all amazing! Thank you for your awesomeness! May the Spirit be with you!
Elder Durrant
