Please meet Ama! Ama is a miracle. That's what Elder van Komen and Elder Mohrman tell me. I was blessed to be able to participate in Ama's baptismal service on Saturday evening, August 18, 2012. I was asked to say the closing prayer--Ama is unbelievable.
Elder van Komen, Ama, Elder Mohrman
(I don't know who has the brighter, happier smile--
Ama or the Elders!)
Elder Mohrman and Elder van Komen found Ama in Den Haag and at first were just being 'disciples of Christ' and helping someone who was in great need of assistance. Well, seven weeks later, Ama is one of the newest members of the Church in the Den Haag Ward.
I met Ama the night of her baptismal interview. All she could do was cry with joy and happiness. She speaks very little Dutch, very little English. She is from Ghana and speaks Tway (not spelled correctly) as her native language. The night of her interview all we could do was hug and cry.
There is such a special spirit about Ama. The Elders love her dearly. President and I love her dearly, and the members in Den Haag Ward love her dearly. There were tears of joy at this baptism. She was confirmed today, Sunday, August 19, 2012. She was looking forward to receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost so she could have it with her always.
Thank you Ama and thank you Elders for the opportunity to participate in a small way in the baptismal service. Missionary work is real and exciting. Zendingsverk is echt en enthoesieast.
