In Doctrine and Covenants 59:58, the Lord instructs the brethren of the church as they are leaving Zion, "And let no man return from the land except he bear record by the way, of that which he knows and most assuredly believes."
I know that this is Jesus Christ's church. I received a call from a prophet of God, who received inspiration to send me here, and I know that because I have never felt so happy in all my life. No matter the rejection or the physical pain or discomfort, I have loved missionary work. The Restoration continues to roll forth, started by a 14 year old boy who had a question. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. All our trials have a purpose, and even though we may not know that that is, God does. I know that from studying the refining of the saints and the prophet in Zion. This is the promised land - the 2nd coming is near. The work is hastening.
Jesus Christ lives. That is a fact - not just a testimony. A fact. He guides and directs us today through the influence of the Holy Ghost, which is real. I testify that no matter what anyone else says, this is the real world.
I testify that this is true, in the name of my savior and elder brother, the Lord Jesus Christ, for who I am a disciple.
