Faith and Truth

Once in a while I come across something that really connects with my spirit, that reminds me that I still have a lot more questions than answers.  This sweet lady lost two sons in the tornadoes of last Sunday, but, like Job of old, she refuses to curse God and die.  Instead, this has been a reason for her to praise God more, and to pass the word.  Our purpose as missionaries is to invite others to come unto Christ, by helping them receive the blessings of the restored Gospel.  There are "many ... among all sects, parties, and denominations who are... kept from the truth only because they know not where to find it." D&C 123:12.  That does not mean that we have all the answers or all the truth.  It means that we have access to the priesthood covenants because of the restoration through Joseph Smith, and through the restoration that is still going on.  So I invite you to go to this site and read the story.  Then watch the short video at the end. Then read the talk by Elder Maxwell, or better, read it and listen to it simultaneously. And I invite us all to raise our voice in praise to our loving God, who loves us enough to give us the tests that we need to pass in order to become what he wants us to be.
