Jesus had doubts, Mr. Obama?

One Response to “Jesus had doubts, Mr. Obama?”

  • Shortly after arriving in the MTC, I bcmeae discouraged because learning Japanese was so hard! Satan went to work on me how could I go to Japan and try to teach people if I didn’t absolutely know the Book of Mormon is true. Though I had read the Book of Mormon, I realized that I hadn’t received my witness of its truthfullness. I determined that I couldn’t extend Moroni’s challenge to read, ponder, and pray about the truthfullness of the Book of Mormon if I hadn’t done so myself. I well remember slipping out of my room at the MTC one night after lights-out’, going down the hall to the sitting area, and kneeling in prayer. I asked Heavenly Father to confirm the truthfullness of the Book of Mormon to me. I remember praying for a long time I was really seeking. Eventually, I received a personal confirmation that the Book of Mormon is true. At the risk of sounding trite, for me, that confirmation came as a warmth I can only describe as a burning within me. I had never felt this feeling before and have felt it, in such a powerful way, on only a few occasions since. I remember that the feeling persisted as I slept that night and awoke the next morning. It was a beautiful experience that changed my life! Through this experience, I gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith, the Restoration, and that Jesus Christ is my saviour and redeemer.
