Ralph is from Hatti. He left Hatti just before the big earthquake. He has very little formal education but wants to improve his life. He has been investigating the church and loves it. But something is holding him back. I think it is the Word of Wisdom. But I love helping him and hope it will continue.
Frank was gracious and very friendly. He is from Rwanda. He speaks French as his native language and he is learning English very well. He had a French Book of Mormon and Bible. He had received some basic instructions from the previous Elders. He was receptive to the doctrine but struggled at times to understand. Once when Miriam was sharing her testimony and talking about stories in the bible and how they related to all of us, he said; "It is amazing that when you were speaking, I understood everything you said."
He committed to a Baptismal date and we were all so thrilled. He said he wouldn't be baptized in April out of respect for the genocide that happened to his people in Rwanda. He committed to a day in May. We look forward to that day and hopefully the opportunity to teach him more.
