As a small child, Garabed Khanadenian did not know anything about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or of the scriptures.
So when he came across a book he had never seen before, he asked his grandfather a question that would change his life. “What is Mormon?” he said.
His grandfather “took me by the hand and walked me to a safe and showed me the scriptures. ‘These are scriptures. These are treasure,’ ” he told his grandson.
In time, President Khanadenian, who today serves as president of the Beirut Branch, would learn of his family’s deep roots in the Church.
