I Couldn't go to Africa, so the Lord Brought Africa to Me!

Dear Family and Friends,

This was a fantastic week! We have an investigator named Fallah, he is from Liberia. We found him in the Former Investigators in our Area Book a few weeks ago and he is so prepared to receive the gospel. We have had a few lessons with him and he teaches everything back to us and has a great understanding of the gospel. He was able to come to church this week too and he is progressing so much. Doctrine & Covenants 29:7 "And ye are called to bring to pass the gathering of mine elect; for mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts."This verse perfectly describes what it is like teaching Fallah. 

We found two new investigators this week, also from Liberia, Kebbeh and Henason. Kebbeh is the wife of a recent convert, Joseph, and Henason is her uncle. They both have such a strong relationship with Christ and Heavenly Father. We are excited to continue teaching them. Ealier in the week we met with Joseph to talk about receiving the priesthood and he expressed to us how strongly he wants his whole family to be with him in the gospel. I am so happy to be teaching his wife and eventually start teaching his 9 children (all daughters)! 

We did a bunch of tracting this week as well and were inspired by the spirit with a neat approach to use. We start off by sharing a picture of Jesus Christ appearing to the Nephites and asked "What would it mean to you to know Jesus Christ appeared to the people here in ancient America after he was resurrected?" Then we told them how we have a record of this found in the Book of Mormon and show them 3 Nephi 11. Most of the people we talked with excitedly accepted a Book of Mormon and said they would read it. We found one person, Larry, who seemed really interested that we will be contacting this week.

It was awesome to share the Book of Mormon with others. I love that book and I know it is true. Every time I read it, it is confirmed to me. I'm so grateful to be serving the Lord at this time helping others to come unto Christ and to help families be together forever. I love you all!
