French, Yoruba, Fon at gas station. Thu, Sep 4, 2008.

09/04/2008. 1062. On the way home I stopped at a gas station that I hadn't been to in a long while. It's not too far from where I live.

I bought some soda pop and the cashier spoke with an accent, so I asked if he spoke French. He did. He was from Benin (in Africa), and spoke English, French, Yoruba, Fon, and another language. We chatted a little, and he agreed to see the church's books in his languages.

I didn't have everything in my car, so I went home and retrieved Yoruba, Fon, and English copies of Gospel Fundamentals; French, English and Fon copies of the Joseph Smith Testimony pamphlet; French, Yoruba, and English copies of the Book of Mormon, a French Liahona magazine, and The Testaments and To This End Was I Born DVDs that have a French audio track.

He was very excited and upbeat about receiving the material.
