WEEK 71: "Give it Time"

Family and Friends,

We have been working with Nico for awhile now and we have seen a miracle happen. He has been taught even before I got here to Cabuyao and once I got here our appointments have been more frequent and more times throughout the week. 

 One of his biggest struggles is the fact that Joseph Smith is a true prophet. He was raised in the Catholic church that says Jesus Christ was and will be the last living prophet. Nico has come to church for the longest time because his wife is a member but also because he loves the teachings and the spirit he feels. He just cant accept Joseph Smith and The Book of Mormon being the words of God. One of his most commonly used phrases is any church is true as long as its Christ centered.

We went over there last Sunday and yesterday and he finally admitted to us that no man could write The Book of Mormon in such detail and with as much exactness unless he was a prophet given the power of God to do so. It had finally made sense to him and he has accepted the invitation to be baptized. This has been and answer to many many nights full of prayers. Thank you for your faith and prayers. This is the true church. God is at the head of it. I love you all.

Elder O'Neil
