Braille Book of Mormon for the blind boy in Bo...

 Today we received The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ, in braille.  It has footnotes as well. Elder Vogl is holding a portion of it and smiling because he knows who this one is for.  
 The braille is on both sides of the page.
Isn't this a wonder?  This is the only time we have received one like this and were very surprised at the big box.  At first glance, we thought we had six Books of Mormon. But, no, it takes six volumes of the braille Book of Mormon to equal one small, regular sized volume of  the The Book of Mormon. It is truly amazing and a great blessing for those who cannot see.  Now, for the rest of the story....

This now12 year old blind boy isn't baptized yet because he has been going to, yes, braille school.  The missionaries have been teaching him and his older sister who takes care of him.  This Book of Mormon in braille was ordered for him a few months ago and just arrived today. On Monday, when we drive to Bo for missionary interviews, we will find him and present him with this most precious gift.  (update:  just found out he is in the village for a few weeks so will get it to him as soon as he returns)

Yes, I have seen a braille Book of Mormon. My father was blind and read the BOM every day. I don't know what happened to his BOM. I am glad they exist and hope it will be a strength to your young investigator.
