Power and Testimony of the Book of Mormon!

Weekly Letter from President Rogers:
Preach My Gospel chapter 5 teaches us the role of the Book of Mormon in missionary 
work. We learn and are able to testify to those we teach that the Book of Mormon is the 
Keystone of our religion. It testifies of Christ and is indeed “Another Testament of Jesus 
Christ”. The book answers questions of the soul and it draws people nearer to God. We learn
how the Book of Mormon and the bible support each other and how to use the book to 
respond to objections to the Church. The Book of Mormon, combined with the Spirit, is our 
most powerful resource in the conversion process. We must use it as the main source of our 
teaching of the restored truths of the gospel.
Reading, pondering, and praying about the Book of Mormon are critical for an enduring 
conversion. I have so much enjoyed placing a Book of Mormon in the hands of those I have 
taught, explaining that they held in their hands the “evidence” that what we are teaching is 
true. Those that read, ponder and pray will receive an answer that Joseph Smith is a prophet 
of God and that the true Church has been restored. 
In our ZTM we passed out an article by Pres Benson entitled, “Flooding the Earth with 
the Book of Mormon”. This talk was presented in General Conference (long before any of you 
were born) and its principles ring as true today as when it was given. I hope to be able to 
flood our mission with the Book of Mormon. We need to learn to use it better. We need to 
learn how to “place it” with people such that they will have a strong desire to read it and ask 
the right questions. We need to use it in all our teaching. We need to quote from it. We need 
to answer “questions of the soul” from it. In short we need to make the Book of Mormon the 
basis and backbone of all our teaching. We certainly need to help those we teach read it 
better and read more of it. I would hope that all those that come into the waters of baptism 
have read “much” of the Book of Mormon, and certainly all must have a testimony of this 
great volume of scripture before they can be baptized. 
The Lord promised Nephi and all of us at that day when He shall proceed to do a 
marvelous work among the children of men that “my words shall “hiss” forth unto the ends of 
the earth, for a Standard unto my people” (2 Nephi 29:1-2). What are these words.....the 
Book of Mormon! Let us go forth and HISS which means to proclaim and testify of the Book 
of Mormon. We should be hissers and testifiers of this great volume of scripture. Let us flood 
the NYUM with this great evidence of the restoration, the Book of Mormon. Have a great 

Love, President Rogers
Hi Everyone,
This is the weekly message that we got this week from President Rogers. I think it is appropriate to share this with you all! As being a missionary you have to understand the power and the Testimony of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is the truth to all things about the gospel. I would like to invite you all to read it, ponder it, pray about it, and most of all use it in your life. I just started over reading the Book of Mormon and I have been marking all things that show Christ-like attributes. You can look up some of Christ's attributes in D&C Chapter 4. When you read, also look for the word (seed) = the word of God and it is crazy how many times you will see this word. 

Love you ALL, 

​Me and Moses
