Moment #485. Malinke(Mandinka), Wed, Nov 16, 2005.
11/16/2005. After Institute I met a recent convert from Africa. He was the man for whom I gave a French Book of Mormon to the Zionsville sister missionaries on August 20th. The sisters had found him, he was not one of my contacts.
I asked what languages his parents spoke, and other than French, he said his mother spoke Malinke. That's another name for the Mandinka language, for which the church has a Joseph Smith Testimony pamphlet and a Gospel Principles. I had the Mandinka JS Testimony pamphlet in the car, so I gave him one of those and an English version to give her. He was very pleased.
