The Plan of Salvation-Our Happily Forever After...

Monday, June 5, 2017                                                    Lake Charles, LA

" This week has been a bit rainy, but still good. One of our investigators got a new job, but he's going to go work off shore, so we're probably going to have to push back his baptismal date just a bit. He works 14 on 7 off. 

As far as food, I found out the best drink at Sonic is the Ocean water with a pineapple add in. It's amazing!

We ate at this super fancy place called the blue dog cafe. Apparently it is named after this famous painter who literally just paints a blue dog on pictures. (I've included a few pics). I have a hard time getting used to popular art. I got the seafood gumbo and it was really good. 

One of the members had us over to eat crabs. They boiled them. They shake when you toss them in, its actually kinda sad but they taste good.

We also went on splits and we went with this recent convert to go see his friend. We were teaching his friend and she seemed really interested. We taught the Plan of Salvation cause she lost her brother. She randomly asks me, " So do you believe there are other books out there, like the Book of Mormon? " So I tell her yes and she gets all happy and starts talking about how she believes that too. She has been trying to find the Book of Moses. The recent convert that I was with was like, "Book of Moses? isn't that in the Book of Mormon?" She is so happy and keeps saying, "Is it really in there?" So I explained that it was actually in the Pearl of Great Price. I explained how we got the Book of Moses before I even explained who Joseph Smith is or anything. Right after that she told us that her dad went to a Mormon church once. She asked lots of questions and we were there for an hour and forty min. We covered half of the Plan of Salvation and it was all good.

We also had Sujin come to church again and that was way cool. 

" We all search for happiness, and we all try to find our own 'happily forever after." The truth is, God knows how to get there! And he has created a map for you...All you have to do is trust Him enough to follow His plan...and that path will take you to your happily forever after... President Dieter F Uchtdorf....
