Here is an excerpt from Sister B. Chandler’s recent letter home:
We also received another media self-referral this week! Her name is Sh. and she is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Elder S. and Elder S. planted the seeds that have grown and are ready to be harvested. Please let Elder S. know how grateful we are for he and his companion’s diligence and sharing a copy of the Book of Mormon with her and a “He is the Gift” card. She doesn’t speak much English, but she reads English pretty well. She has read most of the Book of Mormon and knows that it is true. We taught her the Restoration just yesterday, I have never in my life seen someone so excited to hear that we have latter-day Prophets on the earth today. She was so happy! She has told her Pastor many times that the Book of Mormon is true and he tells her that it’s not, and that she should give it up… She resisted. She didn’t have the missionary’s phone number on the card, but she went to Mormon.org and requested our visit. We set her for baptism on Nov. 5th we are so excited to meet with her again on Friday and help her progress! We’re also planning on teaching her 8 year old daughter and hope she too will be baptized!
