Here at LDSMissionaries.com, We come across thousands of missionaries through our website and Facebook page and this set of Ghanaian triplets really stood out to us. They reached out to us (and sent us a cute picture) and we just had to publish their story on our blog.
Here is what they said:
“We are triplets and we just finished serving in 3 Nigerian missions. I feel it will be fun and above all we want to share our testimony with the world.”
So we asked them these questions, and got the following responses:
1. What are all your names, left to right?
Dicken, Dickson, Dick (Bonsrah)
2. What missions you served in, and your hometown?
Dicken served in the Nigeria Eunugu Mission
Dickson served in the Nigeria Porthacourt Mission
Dick served in the Nigeria Lagos Mission.
We are Ghanaians from eastern region of the country from a small town named Obosomase. We now stay in Adenta, a suburb of the capital Accra in the Adentan stake and we worship in Adenta Ward.
3. How did your parents, (particularly your mother), feel?
Our parents are not members of the church but our mum was very happy for our decision to serve our Heavenly Father.
4. Share with us your testimony.
“Our testimony is that we know fully and truly that there is a God in heaven and he loves us and the Book of Mormon is also another testament and the prophet Joseph Smith was called of God.
“So we found about the church through our guardians the Opare family. We came to school in their school and through that we became members. We knew everything about the church was true. I loved the plan of salvation. I had never heard of it so when I heard of it I was happy. My parents gave us the consent to be baptized. Like earlier said, our mentor has been the Opare family. I wanted to first broaden my knowledge or testimony about Jesus Christ and his church and I had the desire to share the restored gospel. My mother’s first name is Doris. Dick Bonsrah’s (favorite) scripture is king Benjamin. Dicken’s is also king Benjamin and Dickson’s is Moroni. Dick’s favorite scripture is Jacob 2:17-19. Dickson’s favorite scripture is Mosiah 2:41 and Dicken’s favorite is 2 Corinth 4:8-10.”
We were so glad to hear that they were strong in the faith and that they have returned with gratitude in their hearts and the fire of testimony.
