Missionary Letters--Rome, Italy: Value of Book of Mormon

Cari Miei,

This week was good, we talked to a lot of people. I love Rome because there are people everywhere. Today we are going to wander around Rome and soak it all up. I am reading the Book of Mormon this transfer because I want to finish my mission how I started it reading the Book of Mormon. I am astounded by how much stronger my testimony of it is now than when I started my mission. As I read it I think of every time that I read a certain verse with an investigator or a time that a member bore testimony during a lesson of another versus. I think of the different things that it has taught me and the overwellming witnesses that I have recieved through the Holy Ghost. I have had so many spiritual experience in the last 18 months with the words of the inspired prophets in the Book of Mormon that I know with all of my heart that it is true, that it was translated by a modern day prophet. I love you all so much, dont forget to Read the Book of Mormon!!!!

Vi Voglio Bene

DR. B:

I think I have said this before, but I am going to say it again, I really enjoy your daughter's missionary letters from Rome. She expresses herself well; she thinks well; and I think she carries a special spirit -- at least that is what I obtain from her writing.

I know you will enjoy getting her back home, but I will miss those posted letters (when that time comes).

The good thing is that I have six more daughters and one son left to go on a mission. Although my daughter returns in August. Daughter number three will be putting in her papers to go on her mission in January. She graduates from BYU Idaho in December and will follow in her two sisters footsteps. One year after she goes her other sister will go then one every two years for the next eleven years. I have drilled in to my kids that all worthy boys and girls should serve a mission.
