It’s been about three months since Rachel Garden joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and she has never been happier.
The 18-year-old college student investigated the Church for more than a year and was taught by missionaries and embraced by ward members. She has visited the Preston England Temple and was recently called to serve in the Young Women presidency of her LDS ward in Glasgow, Scotland.
What’s unique about Garden’s conversion is how Latter-day Saints in Utah played a part. Digital missionaries from the Cedar Hills 10th Ward connected with Garden online at a pivotal time when she wanted to learn more about the church from members who didn’t wear black nametags.
