Elder Gull And Elder Kocherhans taught and baptized Damoni

Elder Aitken, Joddy, Charles, Billy and Elder Isom

Charles and his two sons Billy and Joddy were baptized Oct 31, 2015.  They have been in the US since Sept. Judith his wife was baptized when she was here earlier last year.  She lived with an LDS family (the Levitts) and converted last year when she was here doing a fellowship at Penn State.  She returned to Africa and introduced her family to the gospel.  They were ready to be baptized when political unrest broke out and Charles had to get out of the country quickly.  He took the two boys and came to State College and Judith went to Europe to see if she could help another son get a visa to the US.  They also have 2 boys and a daughter out of the country.
     Charles approached the missionaries and told them he was ready to be baptized!  Every missionary's dream!  Visiting their humble home reminded me of the blessings I take for granted such as freedom and safety.
