"The strength of a missionary's Book of Mormon-based testimony cannot be measured - it has tremendous converting power," said Elder Richard G. Scott of the Council of the Twelve.
In his address June 19, he conducted a demonstration of how to teach and fortify missionaries and investigators by using the Book of Mormon."Teach missionaries to use the Book of Mormon with investigators as a key step in conversion."
He said that to understand the scriptures, a person should:
- Search and ponder individual scriptures.
- Analyze and unite related scriptures.
- Respond to revelation.
"As missionaries and investigators read the scriptures, the heavens will be open to them, and they can learn, not only what they are studying, but what the Lord would teach them."
