Here is an excerpt from Elder J. Morgan’s recent letter home:
While street boarding yesterday, I got into a conversation with a 60 year old woman who stopped to take a look at our street board. I asked her if she ever heard of God’s plan of Happiness. She stopped, and I began to tell her about the plan, about the Book of Mormon and about how she could live with her family for eternity. Her name is Hope (Nadejda), and we talked for about 30 minutes. She thanked me for talking to her, she was sad that day, and I made her day that much better. I reminded her of her Son, who currently lives in Germany, so she asked if she could kiss me on the cheek. So, now I can officially say that I received a Babooshka kiss in public. I told her to come to church on Sunday, and find out more. I hope sh comes to church this Sunday, either way, I sent her off with a smile, and a plan of salvation pamphlet.
