Zone conferences continued this week with the Westchester Stake missionaries
meeting in Scarsdale on Tuesday.
"A central purpose of the Book of Mormon is to convince all people that Jesus is the Christ. It testifies of Christ by affirming the reality of His life, mission, and power."
(PMG pg 105)
"Please do no take the Book of Mormon for granted.
Pray for a vision of how the Book of Mormon can
be used more effectively in your mission.
I promise that you do so, your mind will be
enlightened with the direction that you should take."
-Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin
On Thursday Zone Conference was held at the Lincoln Square Building for the Manhattan Stake Missionaries. As I was leaving the meeting I saw the news feed on my cell phone and learned of the accident in Times Square with the car that hit several pedestrians. Although I felt great sadness for those involved I had an overwhelming feeling of peace. I knew all our missionaries were safely sitting in Zone Conference at the time of the accident.
This was a sweet tender mercy. "...the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance."
1 Nephi 1:20
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
