  • Ashwaq Masoodi “Mormonism: A Fledgling Faith in India”– One man’s story of how he found The church in India touched my heart. Read about how the Church is growing in this amazing land. “The family elders were unable to address the exasperating queries bordering on heresy around the Holy Trinity. ‘My parents told me that he (God) was Holy Father in heaven. He came to the earth as Jesus Christ, and he died and became the Holy Ghost. This didn’t make sense,” recalled Beesa. Little did Beesa know that the real truths about the Godhead were the very foundations of Mormonism. The crisis of faith continued to simmer inside Beesa.”

This man compiled some of Paul’s best advice on missionary work from the New Testament. ” No timidity is allowed.
