Liahona Helps Home Teachers

I was very grateful to see the photograph on the cover of the September 1998 issue. With the Liahona (Spanish) in my hand, I went to where my husband was and showed it to him. “What do you see?” I asked.

He looked at it and replied, “A dad fixing a sink.” “Look closer,” I said. And then he realized it was the home teachers making a visit and they had arrived at just the right moment to help a sister in need.

I wanted to let you know that this issue helped my husband a lot. He’s the elders quorum president in our ward. He took a sheet of paper and started writing down what he needed to do to set up new assignments for his home teaching companionships. I also saw him meet with his counselors to plan visits. But most important of all, he made time to fulfill his own calling as a home teacher.

I know my Heavenly Father lives, and the Liahona is one way He lets us know the things we need to do.

Messages Help Us Stay True

I belong to a small branch in a little town in the province of La Pampa, Argentina. All of my family are members of the Church, and we enjoy reading the Liahona (Spanish). It isn’t easy to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where we live, but the inspired messages in the magazine help us stay true to the gospel. The Liahona is a blessing in our lives. Thank you for making it possible for us to read the words of the living prophets.

Magazine Gives Strength And Joy

Each month I can hardly wait for the next issue of the French magazine. The December 1998 issue was particularly inspiring. The magazine gives me the strength I need. I found the Church at age 56, and in spite of some challenges after my conversion, I have felt so much love that today I think I know how much our Heavenly Father loves us. I am preparing to go to the temple in Zollikofen, and I want to thank you for the wonderful magazine that brings me so much joy.
