"You will be an official representative of the Church. . . . Your purpose will be to invite others to come unto Christ . . . Greater blessings and more happiness than you have yet experienced await you as you humbly and prayerfully serve the Lord in this labor of love among His children. We place our confidence in you." Thomas S. Monson

Exciting Times!

This article talks about the phenomenal growth in Church membership that happened in West Africa last year, almost 20,000 new converts and the retention rate is high.  The gentleman who wrote the blog took the numbers and created visuals.  Notice the huge jump in Togo and Benin since 2011 when Elder Jenkins' mission was created in July 2011.  Exciting times in the history of that area of the world that he is privileged to play a small part in.
