  • Gain a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon.  In God’s infinite wisdom, He provided a volume of scripture for our day that is convincing evidence of the truth of the restoration.

4/ Sister Martino

  • 2 Nephi 2:6-8 states: “Wherefore,redemption cometh in and through the Holy Messiah; for he is full of grace and truth.  Behold, he offereth himself a sacrifice for sin, to answer the ends of the law, unto all those who have a broken heart and a contrite spirit; and unto none else can the ends of the law be answered. Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah, who layeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit, that he may bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise.”
  • Their 22 year old son died of leptospirosis, despite numerous priesthood blessing which said otherwise.  One blessing even commanded their son to get up, arise, and walk. When he passed away, a voice came to Sister Martino saying, “Hold on to Me!”  She replied, “I can do that!”  
  • Mary overcame her immense sorrow as she stood at the foot of the cross through the power of the very Atonement that Jesus was in the process of fulfilling!
