June 23, 2014 - Summer is here..... Visit to the Manhattan Temple in New York City

A wonderful visit to the Manhattan- New York City Temple

This family from El Salvador is wonderful, they are very happy all the time.

Hey everyone,

Well, last week I attended the Manhattan temple. It was such an amazing experience. It was fun going through the New York subways as a whole zone. Last Friday we had a cool experience. We were walking back from an appointment that fell through when Elder King felt prompted to go talk to a women and her kids sitting on there porch. We introduced ourselves and asked if we could share a message about Jesus Christ. She said yes and started teaching her about the important role Jesus Christ's atonement. She said she has a strong faith in Jesus Christ and introduced the Book of Mormon saying how it is another testament of Jesus Christ. We started teaching her about how the proper authority from God has been restored. The spirit was so strong, we felt prompted to invite her for baptism. She accepted and set up a next appointment for next Friday. We also taught the law of tithing to Efrain who has an baptismal date for July 25. We had the Baileys come along and shared great experiences of how paying tithing has blessed them. One thing I like is they said that they cannot afford not to pay tithing. Thought that was cool. Efrian accepted to keep the law of tithing after baptism. Well,  I love you all. I know this church is true. Just wanted to leave you all with this scripture. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding….” Proverbs 3:5. Trust in him.

Our District is very asymmetrical in size, but wonderful
