The Book of Mormon is True

It was really good to talk to everyone.

This week was full of food each day, then today we worked it off cleaning the apartment for mission wide apartment clean-up day. There is a chance for prizes, including a home made meal from President.
At Tuesday's zone conference, President gave us a challenge to read the Book of Mormon in 90 days. The Book of Mormon was also the focus of our zone conference.

In explaining the Book of Mormon to investigators we explain it is as if we have just come to there house with the best tasting "ulam" ever created.We invite them to eat, and find out for themselves if it is truly good. If they "eat" and eat it with prayer and sincerity, they will know it is good. If they don't bother to try, they will never know if our claim on having "the best tasting ulam" is true.
I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and I need to use it more as a missionary. We cannot have the relationship we need to have with our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ without it. It is the evidence of Joseph Smith and this great latter-day work.

The Book of Mormon truly is the "keystone of our religion." It all rests on The Book of Mormon.

As President Hinckey said in one of his last conference addresses "it is either true or it is not." 

Every person on this earth ought to read, ponder and pray about the Book of Mormon to see if our claim to living prophets and apostles, and everything else we believe is true.

Everything stands or falls on the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, it is that simple. The Book of Mormon is the evidence.

I love you mom and dad, and thank you for your prayers.

Give everyone a Happy New Year for me.

--Elder Hale
