Bookslinger is still on the Lord’s errand, slinging his books and other Gospel materials.
He puts every single one of us Latter-day Saints with a desire to bring all of God’s children to a knowledge of restored religious truth and priesthood authority seriously to shame. Thank you for doing so Bookslinger.
His latest experience with bookslinging is a prime example:
08/20/2008. 1057. I stopped for supper at a Chinese restaurant on my way to an appointment with a client. I don’t remember eating here before, but if I did, it’s been a long time. I ordered, paid, sat down, and put some material on the table. When the cashier/waitress/owner brought my food, she didn’t seem to notice the material.
When I finished eating, I was the only customer in the restaurant, so I stopped by the cashier counter and struck up a converstation with her. She accepted a Chinese and English Liahona, a Simplified Chinese copy and an English copy of the Book of Mormon, and the “Finding Happiness” DVD, which is only about 5 minutes long, and has a Chinese Audio and Video track. Their small children immediately started flipping through pictures in the magazines and in the book of Mormon.
Your dedication exposes many of us Latter-day Saints for the hypocrites that we often are, claiming as we do the privilege of identitying ourselves as children of Christ, having been “spiritually begotten” of Him through the covenants we have entered into (Mosiah 5:7), beginning with baptism, and yet often shrinking from such opportunities to share our testimonies and Gospel materials with those around us. You are setting an excellent example for us all. Keep up the good work.
