Growth in Guinea

In 1943 I attended Church meetings in Port Moresby, New Guinea, with Jack Milne of Sydney and several other servicemen from the United States. The meetings were held on a Wednesday night and advertised in the daily newspaper, Guinea Gold. There was a group leader, Chaplain Probst, who was acting under the direction of the Church. He is now deceased.

I was most interested to read in the February issue the account of the Church’s status now in Papua New Guinea (“‘One Talk’ in Papua New Guinea,” Feb. 1995). It’s exciting to see the growth.

That’s What Mormons Are

My wife and I are serving in the Mexico Guadalajara Mission. One day we were taking a taxi and began a conversation with the driver. We told him that we were missionaries representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He replied that he knew we were Mormons. “You are clean, neat, appear well educated, friendly, and courteous,” he said. “That’s what Mormons are.”

The Church is not that large here and there are not many members, but we are known by the fruits of our members.
