To day we interviewed a sweet 80 year old lady. The interview was in Spanish so I wasn't getting too much out of it. I am getting so I can sometimes recognize a word or what people are trying to say. But as we closed the interview wither testimony, a warm feeling came over me. I was feeling her testimony. It was a sweet experience for me.

When we end an interview, we always ask the person to close with their testimony. It made me think how often have I been asked to bear my testimony on the spot so to speak. In the Philippines we would be asked to share our testimony in church but usually had a few minutes to think about it. These people who are interviewed are asked as we end the interview to bear their testimony. I am making it a goal of mine to be prepared to share my testimony of the gospel at a moments notice without having to think of it . . .
I know my Savior lives and I love Him. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a Prophet of God on the earth today. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove. I know that my Heavenly Father knows me and has a plan for me. I know that if I keep the commandments that I can live with my family forever. I am grateful for all the blessings that I have been blessed with. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen
