Family and Friends,

We have had lots of success these past couple weeks and I know it is because of prayers, fasting and faith.

Last week we met a lady as we were walking that said she was very interested it what we had to teach. She willingly set an appointment with us to come back and teach. We wen to her house on the scheduled date and taught the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Elder Kaifoto and I were both surprised at the amazing question she asked. We felt that she was going be baptized very quick. We set up another time to visit with her and again she willingly accepted. We planed on teaching about the Book of Mormon and reading the introduction. We started the lesson and asked if she had any questions. She started of with "Why was the book hidden away for so many years" and "Who did the golden plates get translated by those 'two stones'?" Elder Kaifoto looked at me and we were both amazed. We continued to teach and answer her questions as she asked them. She then went on to ask questions about specific people. We were shocked. She said she hadnt read it but that she had heard briefly about it. There was something more to this because those are deep questions. 

At the end of the lesson we asked if she had anymore questions that would surprise us even more. This was her question, but our answer. "Do I need to be baptized again?" The response was "No only once in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" Her response was "Oh! Well then I've already been baptized! Do I need to be taught again?" We all just started laughing because it made sense. She went and got her baptismal certificate and sure enough  3 years ago she was baptized. She never told us that until the third time we met with her. She only said she had talked with the missionaries because they were teaching her cousin. It was a great laugh but we are now teaching her husband and daughter. They are amazing.

This is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today.
