Missionary Proves to be a Life Changing Experience
How this missionary's reassignment during the pandemic led him to baptize his grandmother
Elder Awanuiārangi Morris’s mission didn’t turn out the way he expected.
After receiving his call to the Philippines, Elder Morris spent 12 days in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, before he received an email telling him he would soon be returning home because of the pandemic.
Elder Awanuiārangi Morris was called to a mission in the Philippines. Then COVID-19 brought him home. Now he is sharing the gospel with his relatives.
He was 19 years old when he was baptized in 2017, which was “one of the best days of my life,” he recalls.
“I was praying for months about the message the missionaries were sharing with me, and I wasn’t getting an answer,” he said in a new Pacific Area Church video. “The Spirit led me to a scripture in the Book of Mormon, and it told me that if I was to be saved, I had to come unto Jesus Christ. So that’s what I did,” he said.
