A couple of weeks ago a pair of missionaries was meeting with an investigator who said she had been having a recurring dream in which she saw her mother who passed away a year ago. She asked the missionaries what the dreams meant. They had not yet taught her about the Plan of Salvation, and simply told her that she needed to pray and ask God herself what the dreams might mean.
When the missionaries returned for their next visit she said, "After your last visit, I prayed that night and asked God to show me why I was having dreams about my mother. That night I had another dream. I don´t know who was talking, or where the voice was coming from, but I heard a voice that said to me 'Celestial Kingdom.' Can you tell me what that means?" The missionaries then taught her about the Plan of Salvation.
She is preparing to be baptized on February 26th.
In Moroni 7, Mormon explains that angels are sent "to minister unto the children of men" and that the "office of their ministry is... to prepare the way." We are grateful to be able to teach people who have been prepared by angels!

The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.
