Life is sweet. Like Alaguntigue

Alaguntigue is a tropical fruit like a big softer and more juicier apple.. With little thorns around it. Life is sweet like that!

Life is going by so fast! I am enjoying every moment! We had some serious miracles this week that are unforgettable. As of right now we are preparing at least 10 people for baptism for the end of July or
shortly after. We have gotten some great referrals from members and the Lord has placed some great people in our path.

We have a man from the Volta region named Christian. We ran into him and invited him to church. He came and has kept coming for the past month or so. For one reason or another we had not seen him for about a week and a half so there was a day that we hadn't planned to see him but we decided to drop by. We came and he was in his house lying on the couch. His wife said he was sick. When we greeted him, a look of sheer terror was on his face. In his broken English he said, 'Why you come here! You no tell me you dey come! It not be good!' As we continued to talk to him the story came out. He has really been changing his life but his friend got him to drink some beer and he felt terrible about it. It just so happened it was the day we went to visit him. He told us that now he knows that God is always watching and he promises never to do anything bad again!!

We have so many investigators we have been teaching who are praying to know if the church is true but just aren't getting a witness of it. We pray specifically about it for a few days and then it all happened! We have a great investigator named Dorcas who is very smart and speaks perfect English. We have been teaching her and she says that she has her church. Then just  the other day, she had a marvelous dream where she walked into her church and everything around her started to crumble and fall to the ground. She said, "it meant that my church doesn't have a foundation of Prophets, Apostles and Jesus Christ, So it all fell." She has a date for the end of July.

We are teaching a man named Eric who has not been very serious. We have prayed specifically for him and out of the blue, as we were helping him carry some water, he stopped and said, "I have come to
know that Joseph Smith is not just a prophet, but a prophet of God." He also will be baptized at the end of the month.

We have been teaching to teenage boys named Sam and Godfreid for a few months. They have been living in Nyenasi but not completed school and have to stay at a TINY village about a 40 minute walk away. Now, coming to church is a real problem. But they truly want to be members and be baptized. So now they will be walking 40 minutes every Sunday. We told them that if they could get 4 more people to come to church we could start a group out there. Now they are running around their village telling anyone and everyone about the Restoration so we can start a group.

There are more stories but you get the idea. It is the Lords work and he is directly involved. The church is so true. I love the Gospel.
