Confident Missionaries


Elder Spratling and Elder Ndlela opened Mafikeng for missionary work.  They had been looking for a school to use for Church meetings.  Until they could find a school, they were holding Church services in the living room of their rented house.


One day as the Elders were making copies, they met a man who was member of the Church.  He was thrilled to learn that the Church had come to Mafikeng.  He asked where the meetings were being held.  They told him that they were meeting in their house, but that they were looking for a school and the search was looking promising.


He said, “Wow, not only do we have missionaries, we have confident missionaries.”  Then in a teasing voice he said, “But I’m prepared to meet in your house for quite awhile.”
