In February, Elders Erik Aagard and Shane Moss showed a video and taught parts of three missionary discussions in a Religion In America class, at the Ridgeview Institute, a hospital in Smyrna, Ga. The missionaries had been invited to make the presentation by a minister. From the start, they felt the Spirit and afterward, answered questions for more than an hour, twice as long as most presenters. Seventeen copies of the Book of Mormon were placed with nurses.
Three asked the elders to teach them the missionary lessons, and one wanted to know how she could join the Church. Many of the nurses said it was the best presentation they had seen in the class and had enjoyed the "whole feeling" they had during the class.
