"God Was Telling Me Something"

By Leo Her

September 25th, 2005, my friend was talking to me about her church. She had invited me to a Scripture study class, October 5th, 2005 at 8pm. I attended the Church scripture study class in West New York, New Jersey.

All the things she had taught me about the Church, were being taught in the scripture study class. I really had a firm grasp of what was being taught that night. Every Wednesday at 8pm I would go to the LDS Church for scripture study class.

Elder Lara, the missionary that was teaching the class came up to me when class was over. He had said "Leo, you seem very interested in the Church. Is it ok if I send missionaries over to your house?" I replied with a yes. The next day I got a phone call from Elder Lacy. He had called me to set up a day and time to meet.

There were some problems in the home with my parents, so I had told Elder Lacy if it was ok to meet at the Church at 7:30 pm, next week Thursday. October 13th I entered the Church to meet Elder Lacy, Elder Bargemen, and Elder Jolley.

The three Missionaries were members from the Jersey City 2nd Ward. They had taught me all the things I had already been taught. They found out how I came upon the Church.

They began to test me from all the things I was taught. They then told me I met all the requirements of the Church to be baptized. I felt that I was unsure and not ready to be baptized yet. I was Catholic at that time. I always told myself “I would never leave the Catholic Belief.”

The Elders began to tell me lots more about the Church. Few days later they told me to pray about getting baptized, and I did. I felt that good feeling to be baptized. Before we did set up a date and time, I had to talk to my parents about it first.

I was talking to my parents about it and, it did not go as well as I hoped. The only person that really understood me was my grandmother which is deeply a member of the Catholic Church. My grandmother told my mother “If this is something that will make him happy, let him do it. It’s good that he still believes in God and Jesus Christ.

This was God’s plan for him.” When my grandmother said thus words “This is God’s plan” It opened my eyes. I was in shock. I told myself “God is telling me something, this is the true Church”. I had to wait until I was 18 to get baptized. I wanted my friend to be there and take a part of my Baptism.

Because of my friend, she has changed my life in so many ways. Because of her, I can return to my Heavenly Father. Because of her, I can serve my Heavenly Father. Because of her, I found the true Church. Because of her, I found the church that could answer all the questions to my prayers.

She did what our Heavenly Father wanted us to do. Convert others to the Church of Jesus Christ, to have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Repent, be Baptize in the name of Jesus Christ, laying of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Brothers and Sisters, I like to testify that I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true Church. I have found answers to my prayers from this Church.

We have a living prophet leading the Church today, Gordon B. Hinckley. God is our true father. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and the Redeemer of mankind. On Jan 29, 2007 marked my first anniversary as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
