Me and Elder White were sitting down eating lunch and all of a sudden it clicked with both of us exactly what we needed to do. Let me introduce #THEFLOOD.
It is a new trend that we are getting started here in the Stillwater Zone and then presenting it hopefully to the rest of the mission. In Preach My Gospel it tells us that the Book Of Mormon combined with the Spirit is the most powerful tool of conversion that we have. Well we were also reading a talk by Ezra Taft. Benson and what he wanted to do was FLOOD the earth with Book of Mormons. He was on point...crazy how a Prophet usually is ;). Well we want to continue his trend and we have gotten it started this past week. In Moses 7:62 it says...
And arighteousness will I send down out of heaven; and truth will I send forth out of the earth, to bear btestimony of mine Only Begotten; his cresurrection from the dead; yea, and also the resurrection of all men; and righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a #flood, to dgather out mine elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare, an Holy City, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called eZion, a fNew Jerusalem.
So what it is saying is that in the last days which is now. The Lord will use the truth from the earth which will bear testimony of His only Begotten to flood the earth and to gather His elect. The Book of Mormon "Another Testament of Jesus Christ" is the Lords tool to gather Israel and right now, He is hastening His work. We are no longer running from Babylon. We are attacking it. And the time is now to get His work done. Its time to step it up and to do our duty to help our brothers and sisters out. The Book of Mormon combined with the Spirit is the way we will. So why wait?! Thats what is going to start here in Stillwater, Oklahoma and we are trending it everywhere!! We need to help people understand why its relevant. Once they read it, we have the Lords PROMISE that He will reveal its truth to the reader!!
Here's the challenge: Me and Elder White have made it a goal to give at least 2 Book of Mormons out every day for the rest of our mission. We ordered 400 copies and made this challenge to Stillwater and to the rest of the world. EVERY WEEK, PLACE AT LEAST ONE BOOK OF MORMON TO SOMEONE YOU KNOW OR DON'T KNOW WITH A PERSONAL TESTIMONY IN ITS PAGES THAT WILL MAKE IT RELEVANT TO THE READER. Flood the earth with the Book of Mormon. #THEFLOOD...Trend it. Spread it! Do it!
So me and Elder White came up with a few step:
Prayerfully ponder and consider who you will give it to.
Relevant; people need to know why the Book of Mormon means anything to us and why it is relevant to their life. (1 Nephi 19:23)
Act in faith, and KNOW that you are doing the Lord work (D&C 6:29-30)
Ye shall receive; this is the Lords work. He will give you oppotrunities. Take them! (Ether 3:19)
This is an exciting time! We are apart of the Lords army to gather Israel. We have a duty and we have a promise that Christ will be on our left and our right....He will go before us. I promise you all that if we make the Book of Mormon a bigger part of our lives, we WILL be converted to the Lord and "NEVER FALL AWAY"(alma 23:6). This will force us to KNOW the Book of Mormon. Read it everyday. Find out how it is relevant in your life. Teach others why it is!! Watch the CONVERTING POWER of the Book of Mormon and the Spirit of the Lord take place in your heart and in the hearts of others. Take this challenge. Help us spread it. What an amazing cause to be involved in. Hold each other accountable for it. A Book of Mormon a week is not hard. JUST DO IT!!
I love you guys. Keep on trucking. This is the Lord kingdom!! Get excited!! It can be fun if you let it!!
