April 3, 2012 - Our District
So, we have been teaching the sister from Peru who was just baptized, and she has been struggling with having a desire to read the Book of Mormon on her own (like everyone). Last Wednesday we decided to just sit down and start reading the Book of Mormon from the beginning with her. We read 1 Nefi 1 and she said she liked it (I made sure to point out that in 1 Ne 1:11-12, Lehi is given a book and commanded to read it, haha). We kept going in 1 Nefi 2, and when we reached the end, she said, "Can we keep going?" We read 1 Nefi 3, and afterwards she said again (more excitedly this time), "Can we keep going?" By the time we finished 1 Nefi 4, she was sad that we had to leave but very excited to keep going on her own. It seems like Satan's biggest tool for limiting the Book of Mormon is keeping it shut, because once someone opens it and starts reading "all heaven breaks loose."
