|Such a beautiful spring day! We love it!|
"No mere mortal has the power in himself to come to life again after dying. Because He was resurrected, Jesus cannot have been only a carpenter, a teacher, a rabbi, or a prophet. Because He was resurrected, Jesus had to have been a God, even the Only Begotten Son of the Father," said Elder Christofferson.
The heavens opened for us on that phone call. The spirit was the teacher, Sister Gearheart and I were simply instruments that marveled at the way our Heavenly Father works so closely and intimately among His children. Every question Jeanine has ever had was answered as we taught her about the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The most powerful spirit she has ever felt was impressed upon her as we testified of the reality of our Savior, our Father in Heaven and of our living. The most profound silence I have ever heard was filled with the voice of God as Jeanine heard her Father in Heaven say, "Jeanine, I do answer prayers."
I say these things humbly and with a heart completely full of gratitude, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Sincerely, Sister Briggs
