Experience from Africa West Area Seminary & Institute Students
In this world we live, there is always one thing one must do always so as to become more like unto the Father in heaven. We need to seek diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith as stated in Doctrine & Covenants 88:118.
Some of the students share testimonies and blessings with us;
Bismark Semanhyia from Kumasi Bantama stake
When I newly returned home from the Nigeria Enugu Mission to a family where my faith is strange to everyone, there were many ideas and plans running through my mind. Where and how to start was the only question popping through my mind every day. Shortly after a few days, I was added to the Institute Class in my ward on WhatsApp, where assignments are given every week for us to study and solve.
Despite the hardships and the oppositions, I know with all my heart that the work of the Lord will still move forward. Now, I have been able to create a plan to diligently assist the Lord is hastening His work. I know He is mindful of His children and I love Him with all my heart.
Elizabeth Nwankwo, Ehere Ward, Aba Ogbor Hill Stake.
I testify that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that His gospel is the standard of truth today. The Lord called Joseph Smith to be His prophet, seer, and revelator in the latter days, and He continues to call living prophets and apostles to guide His Church.
Prosper Ogbonna, Ngwa Umuogelle Ward, Aba Ogbor Hill Nigeria Stake.
We live in the time spoken of by the prophets, a time of great turmoil and great pandemic. The Lord promised that when we see these times, he said, ‘Stand in Holy places and be not moved.’ The online institute has provided me the opportunity to ‘Stand in Holy places and be not moved.’ I have been blessed with the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ even as I have been participating in these online classes from the comfort of my own home. Indeed, the Divine purpose of technology is to hasten the work of salvation. I am grateful we have a living prophet.
Gordfred Mbroh(Swedru 2nd Ward)
My testimony is strengthened as I study and watch the book of Mormon videos online. I am always happy and blessed even in this pandemic era, because of the online seminary.
Eric Sewu from Teshie Ghana Stake
The world may be in despair, lives may be at a standstill, our faith may be challenged and pushed to the core but one thing I know and believe in is that the redeeming and merciful alms of the Lord is not far from us and He will succor for us in this time too as he did for those in the primitive days.
