A Thousand Souls
This novel-based on Lee Nelson's actual LDS mission to Germany is a pleasing, uplifting journey of self-discovery.# the plot twists and heart-touching scenes rival any of those found in the author's Storm Testament series.# the powerful message will serve as motivation for young readers to serve missions themselves.Elder Spencer W. Kimball laid his warm, strong hands on my head and in a raspy voice, proceeded to set me apart as a missionary. He blessed me that I would be protected from harm, that I would enjoy good health, and that if I kept the commandments and remained faithful I would be instrumental in bringing a thousand souls to the truth.That promise weighed heavily on young Lee Nelson as he began his mission to Germany in the 1960s, but also served as a motivator for him in accomplishing the work of the Lord.
