To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.—Acts 10:43
You gain a vibrant, life-changing testimony today the same way it has always been done. The process hasn’t changed. It comes through desire, study, prayer, obedience, and service. That is why the teachings of prophets and apostles, past and present, are as relevant to your life today as they ever have been. —M. Russell Ballard
