We worked Memorial Day since people did not have work and would be home all day. President McConkie asked us to type up a testimony that could go into a Book of Mormon and I spent my whole time at the computer writing it. Since I don't have much time to write anything else I am going to send it to you as well.  :) 

"Dear friend,
This book means everything to me. I know the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. I know within its pages it contains the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Even though the Book of Mormon was written thousands of years ago, it has relevance in today’s world. The authors of this book were inspired and called of God. They saw our day and wrote this book for our benefit.

Since I have started studying from the Book of Mormon, a peace and love has entered into my life. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I know my Father in Heaven loves me and wants me to live righteously so I can return and live with Him.
I invite you to read the Book of Mormon. As you read, ask your Heavenly Father, "Is the Book of Mormon true?" I have prayed many times and asked this very question. Each time I ask, Heavenly Father answers my prayer. I know He will answer your questions as well. I know peace and comfort will come into your life as you read from the Book of Mormon, and you will draw closer to your Father in Heaven.

There it is. Not fancy at all but it's what I know. I can't believe I have already been out for 3 months. I feel like I know nothing. I am even more committed to make every day count on my mission. I love this work. I am blessed to have this opportunity. I Love you all!
