This last Sunday we met with a guy who is from China or Singapore. He knew very little Indonesian so we taught him in English. We met with him at the church and he told us that he has wanted to learn about our church because of a coworker of his who is from Arizona and a member of the Mormon church. he said that his coworker was "different" than the others and that he didn't smoke or drink alcohol. I always like like this because it shows how important it is for us to live the gospel and share the gospel through our example. And because of this faithful member we got a new investigator in Jakarta, Indonesia.
When we taught him in the chapel, he asked, " you are missionaries of this church, right? Why should I join your church? Convince me why I should join this church." We answered him by giving him the message about the Restoration and Joseph Smith.
The lesson was going just alright, nothing too exciting for him, until the First Vision. I explained to him about Joseph Smith and how he was searching for the truth. Joseph Smith prayed and then saw God and Jesus Christ. I recited the First Vision to him and the spirit was very strong. We continued on and taught him about the Book of Mormon. He wants to learn more and come to church after he gets back from Australia in a week or two.
Thanks for all your prayers and support.
Love, Elder Litster
