A Lot of Converts

Elder Meinzer LOVES Ghana

The mission president wants to have a baptismal goal for the mission. They are asking each ward for a monthly goal, then total that up for the year. The ward will commit to that goal, then they will add up the wards goals to get a stake goal, which they will commit to. They will then add up all of the stakes to get their mission goal.

Dominic and Genevieve were confirmed yesterday. Dominic bears his testimony at the end of their lessons. Dominic asked some questions during a lesson that Elder Meinzer has asked at times but didn't know the answer to. As he prayed in his heart, "it was like I had knowledge poured into my mind and I was able to clearly understand the answer to the question and knew how to explain it to him. That was a cool moment of enlightenment."

Sarah and her husband have been progressing rapidly over the past week and want to be baptized. They will be baptized on September 25. Amos will also be baptized that day. The stake president is getting him a white shirt and tie to wear to church and the bishop is getting him shoes. Cecilia told them her prayer was answered about Joseph Smith and that she accepts baptism. She will also be baptized on the 25. After that baptism, they will not have many investigators, just a lot of converts.

Elder Gibson informed Elder Meinzer that some of the investigators that they taught in Abuakwa have been baptized, like Michael, Charles, Frimpong and Patience. "Sweet!"
