I hope they will be this excited about the Restored Gospel when they are a little older.
We concluded the last four of our zone conferences on inviting people to make commitments. Inviting our investigators to keep a commitment is how we help them repent. Their commitment to live the Gospel leads to conversion. It is how they "truly manifest by the works that they have received of the Spirit of Christ unto the remission of their sins..." (Doctrine and Covenants 20:37)
We are most successful at helping people make and keep commitments when we follow a pattern of inviting which includes:
Teaching the Doctrine.
Promising the associated blessings.
Music, food and socializing rounded out the day.
On Saturday, I had Coordinating Council with the Stake / District Presidents in the mission. Following the meeting, Sister Stevenson and I drove to Praso to finish the interviews with the missionaries in the Praso Zone.
On the way, we met two of our missionaries serving in Hemang.
We had scheduled the four Praso elders for Saturday night at the Sorensen's home. We enjoyed a spaghetti dinner before the interviews.
Early Sunday morning, we crossed the Pra and headed for Dunkwa.
We attended church in Dunkwa and met with the missionaries.
The roads were just a little dusty.
We had an FM (free meal) with President Fokuo. Okra with banku, goat and fish.
