Many LDS members shared their testimony and responded to questions as part of the nearly 500 comments on Elder Holland’s Youtube video posted last week. I thought you might be interested in some of the comments left by non-members, especially the first one. You can see the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz3rggCnhxQ
“I must say, what Holland is saying her makes incredible sense and something about this video really strikes a cord with me in a way that nothing else ever has. I’ve been to many churches and have heard many sermons, and if they all use the Bible I can’t see how they all come out so different. If this Book of Mormon is indeed an addition to his word, then God sure knows what he’s doing to correct where we’ve been going wrong with Christianity.”
A few months ago I was asked by Mailis and Hanne_Line if there could be a site created for LDS members from Finland and Norway, respectfully. I created a Finnish and Norwegian forum and chat room for them on LDS.net, and Mailis and Hanne_Line agreed to be the moderators. Mailis and Hanne are such wonderful women, and it has been so amazing to have them be a part of the site. I really appreciate all their dedication and effort they have done to build up the information for the Church in their native language. It’s been such a wonderful experience to see the feedback from having these forums available to members and investigators of those countries.
Because of the Finnish and Norwegian sections of the website, I regularly get messages from people in those countries wondering where a Church is located and how to find out more. Mailis has currently been talking to two investigators from Finland, TMS1 and Tytto_19. TMS1 really wants to be baptized, and Tytto_19 went to Church with Mailis last Sunday. It is so neat to see the missionary work that is happening everyday on LDS.net.Read More
