“Let Earth Receive Her King!”

Latter-day Saints in Sofia, Bulgaria, and Bangkok, Thailand, found ways to testify of Jesus Christ at Christmastime.

As the foundation for the Church is laid in areas around the world, allowing it to come forth “out of obscurity and out of darkness” (D&C 1:30), members have opportunities to demonstrate by their faith, by their examples, and by their teachings that they are disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. Following are two stories of how Christmas, with its message about the birth and mission of the Savior, brought opportunities to introduce the gospel to people who knew little or nothing of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
