The Most Correct Book

We love teaching others about the Book of Mormon here in London. Our purpose as missionaries is to invite others to come unto Christ through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. The Book of Mormon, Another Witness of Jesus Christ, is our most powerful tool to help us do this.
We always carry a copy of the Book of Mormon as we greet guests
We love these quotes from October General Conference about the Book of Mormon:

"The simple message is that God is our loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is His Son. The gospel is restored in these latter days through living prophets, and the evidence is the Book of Mormon."  - Elder Gregory A. Schwitzer

"Search the Book of Mormon and the words of the living prophets every day, every day, every day! It’s the key to spiritual survival and avoiding deception. Without it, we are spiritually lost." 
 - Elder Kevin W. Pearson

Prince of Wales theater where the Book of Mormon musical is playing
The musical "The Book of Mormon" is playing here in London and is heavily advertised. We see advertisements on buses, bus stops, and tube stations. They seem to be everywhere. Rather than keeping people away, this musical is creating even more interest in finding out the truth about what the Book of Mormon really is.
It is fun to see "I Love Mormon" on the buses
Not infrequently people come into the Vistors' Centre having seen the musical and wanting to find out the truth about the book. Even more often people come in and have never heard of the Book of Mormon. They are excited to receive a copy and read it, especially when English is their second language and they can get a copy in their native tongue.
The Book of Mormon is available in 40 different languages at the VC
In our supply closet we keep a record of how many Book of Mormons we give out so we can keep the closet stocked. In just the first 15 days of November it appears that 75 books were given out in 14 different languages!

If you read anything from this post, read the following statement:

"If you are struggling, confused, or spiritually lost, I urge you to do the one thing I know will get you back on track. Begin again to prayerfully study the Book of Mormon and live its teachings every day, every day, every day! I testify of the profound power in the Book of Mormon that will change your life and strengthen your resolve to follow Christ. The Holy Ghost will change your heart and help you see “things as they really are.” He will show you what you need to do next." 
 - Elder Kevin W. Pearson

We are so grateful for the power of the Book of Mormon and for the impact it has had in our own lives. We are thankful to be able to daily testify of its truthfulness and to see the positive influence on people who will read it and ask God themselves if it is true. To the sincere and earnest, He will answer that the book really is true. This is the promise of the Book of Mormon.
