The Fortnight Plan — A Promise from the Lord


The FORTNIGHT Plan, used in the New Zealand Hamilton Mission during our service there.  The Plan was presented to all investigators who would accept it.

•  The Challenge:
 1) John 7:17 says, “If any man will DO [God’s] will, he shall KNOW of the doctrine, whether it be of God…”.  In other words, DO first and then you will KNOW!
.   2) The challenge is this — for two weeks (a fortnight), ACT as if you are an active member of the Church and live an LDS lifestyle.  DO it, and your faith will grow.
•  The Four Steps:
.   1) Pray personally, with real intent, twice a day, asking the Lord to help you come again unto Him.
.   2) Read the Book of Mormon every day.  Begin your reading with a prayer that you can know of the truthfulness of the Book.  As you read, ask yourself if
.        Joseph Smith could have written this book.  Review the suggested scriptures listed below.
 3) Hold a Family Home Evening with the missionaries two Mondays in a row.
.   4) Attend Church twice, tow Sundays in a row.
•  The Promise:
.   1) Moroni 10:5 — “…by the power of the Holy Ghost you may know the truth of all things.”
 2) You have nothing to lose and eternity to gain.
