Eikaiwa class

Our Eikaiwa class is kind of losing it, this week we only had one student show up...BUT it turned out way awesome because we were able to introduce the Book of Mormon to him.  A couple weeks ago we tried to do a mogi lesson with him ( help with Japanese) he talked the whole time about cable TV and things of that sort, that we didn't get to teach him anything at all...but we left him with a pamphlet of the Restoration.  Somehow I pulled out the pamphlet at Eikaiwa and we began having a discussion about it.  He is Protestant, which is very rare in Japan, so he already has a background of the Bible....which is amazingly easy to work with.  He had heard about the Book of Mormon before but assumed it was a replacement to the Bible. So he didn't ever want anything to do with it.  We told him how the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that Jesus Christ visited other parts of the world.  He was amazed! He said, "so this is proof!" Yes!  Jesus Christ is our Savior and through the Book of Mormon and the Bible we can know of a surety that we are not lost, and we have the Savior to guide us back to our Heavenly Father! We also shared with him Moroni 10:3-5 so he could know the next step in finding the truth...that is to "ask God" in humble prayer if the Book of Mormon is His word, that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church of Jesus Christ upon the earth today.  We told him that if he does this he will know his answer.  He told us he wants to try!
