From the Singapore Mission AP's Newsletter (Assistants to the Mission President):

Companionship: Sister Wong and Sister Gopinath
Area: KK1  (Kota Kinabalu)

In an appointment with an investigator, they asked how she felt about the Book of Mormon. Their investigator bore a simple testimony, stating that she knew it was true, despite being a relatively new investigator. The Sisters then went on to talk about Baptism, and it's importance. She immediately clarified to the Sisters that she had already been baptized at an infant, and despite many different religious groups asking her to be baptized, she had already done so. To help answer the concern, the Sisters had her turn to Moroni chapter 8 (you know, the one that totally condemns infant baptisms...). Well, before they could tell her which verse to read, she started reading aloud from the beginning. As she read, she began to cry! Then, around verse 26 she finally said that it was enough and put it down. Needless to say the Sisters thought it was over, but their investigator said that she knew she had to be baptized! The Book of Mormon is the most powerful tool we have in conversion! And go figure that was the topic of the week for the 12-week program too!
