Kirtland: A Very Sacred Place

Good morning/afternoon everyone,

This week was great! We picked up a few new investigators and 2 of them came to church yesterday. We had many powerful lessons and conversations this week. It rained cats and dogs most of the week and then it got super hot with 100% relative humidity. We definitely saw the Lord’s hand in the work this week.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to take our investigator, Jasmine, on a tour of Kirtland. Our Ward Mission Leader and his wife took on the task of driving us all the way to Kirtland. Which is a solid 2 hours from Toledo. (They are wonderful people) It was an amazing experience!!

At the end of the tour we go to the School of Prophets, which is in the upper room of the Newell K. Whitney store. Joseph Smith spent lots of time up there with the early apostles and members of the Church. Jesus Christ Himself along with concourses of angels have also been in that small room. So, needless to say, you can feel it in there. An investigator told us that his first time in there he felt as if "there was a lot more people in there that [he] couldn’t physically see."

So we sat in there and told Jasmine about the significance of what happened in there. We asked her what she was feeling and she said very specifically "I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet" She accepted to be baptized! So we’ll be working towards that now.

If you haven’t been to Kirtland, GO! It’s beautiful there. And things that happened there continue to echo.

And to top it all off, we got to hear from and meet Brad Wilcox after the tour. Read his talk "His Grace is Sufficient." He’s one of the best teachers of the Gospel in the world.

Here’s a pic of us with Jasmine (pink dress) and her family. Her whole family joined the church just a few months ago. We are standing in front of the Kirtland Temple.

Have a good week 🙂
