The Journey – Coming to America

In this episode, I share my experience of coming to America. I have lived in America longer now than I have lived in my native country of Poland. I have many thoughts and emotions about this exciting, blessed, and educational part of my life. Today, I will address how the Lord guided me to this great land just as He led others.

My life started in Poland during Communism. For those who do not know what communism is, it is a type of government and an economic system (a way of creating and sharing wealth). In a Communist system, individuals do not own land, factories, or machinery. Instead, the government or the whole community owns these things. Everyone is supposed to share the wealth that they create.”

There is a scripture that I love and appreciate very much. In Ether chapter 2:12 of the Book of Mormon, It says:

“Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written.”

On the “References- World View” site, I learned more about people who emigrated to America. It made me think of my great-great aunt and her brother, who left Russia and came to America, leaving the conditions behind.

“People immigrated to America for various reasons, including finding personal, religious, or economic freedom. The most prominent reason for immigration, however, was poverty. People left their home countries, where they had low wages and poor living.

Each generation brought a different group of immigrants having various reasons and conditions for immigrating to America and creating a better life for themselves and their families.”

Another verse that speaks about this land is in 2 Nephi 1:5, Lehi said,

“ …Yea, the Lord hath covenanted this land unto me, and to my children forever, and also all those who should be led out of other countries by the hand of the Lord.”

The Lord said in 1 Nephi chapter 2, verse 20

“And inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall prosper, and shall be led to a land of promise; yea, even a land which I have prepared for you; yea, a land which is choice above all other lands.”

In closing, I share one of my songs, “Here in this Land,” composed for a special event over ten years ago. It was performed by Spokane Symphony and Children’s Choir
