I don't usually welcome nor entertain religious preachers of any faith but I didn't know what happened. I just felt good to invite these missionaries to enter in our house.
When they taught me about the Book of Mormon, I was investigating if there was a contradiction to the Bible. In my past experience, I have met some preachers who said that their own version of the Bible is true and the original one.
Instead, the missionaries simply invited me to read, ponder and pray.
But as I read the Book of Mormon, I could find no contradictions.
Furthermore, I was separated for 12 years and I was living with another woman. When the missionaries taught me about the law of chastity, I asked, "How could I be baptized into His church?"
The missionaries provided me two options. It's either we go our separate ways or we'll wait for 5 years. I was willing to wait for another 5 years. But to make the story short, I broke up with my live-in partner.
I went back to mormon.org site and asked for the missionaries to visit me again. When the missionaries once again found me, I told them I wanted to be baptized.
I TESTIFY THAT OUR CHURCH IS TRUE AND THE BOOK OF MORMON IS TRUE BOOK HERE ON EARTH.
Originally I'm from Binmaley, Pangasinan but I was baptized in Tarlac 5th Ward, Tarlac Stake last Saturday July 15 2018.
