mission conference with Elder Ballard

We had powerful men and women called of God among us this week. Elder M. Russell Ballard and his wife, Elder Rasband, Elder Caussé and his wife, Bishop Edgely and his wife, Elder Teixeira and his wife all came to our mission to address us and what on earth can you say after such experiences? Nothing quite suffices. I shall simply say that I know that the priesthood power and authority of God has been restored to the earth through the ministering of angels to our beloved prophet, Joseph Smith. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the power of God unto salvation and the Book of Mormon will bear the truth of that unto us through the power of the Holy Ghost. That is my message and that is why I am here in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Our wonderful investigators are going strong and I am so grateful every morning to prepare to teach them. There is nothing better than being a missionary and seeing these people read from the Book of Mormon to find answers to their greatest questions. Liliane loves reading from the Book of Mormon and this past Tuesday when we asked how she felt while reading it, she responded, "Ik lees mijn eigen gedachten, eigenlijk." (It's like reading my own thoughts, actually) I've never heard anything more beautiful.
The church is true, the book is blue!

love you all,
Zuster Jillian Fritz
