To the Builder of the New World, the Appointed Son of God in the modern days, Pastor Apollo, whose sermons touched the depth of my heart:
Please allow me to introduce you my brief background. I am a Laotian who has been victimized by the war in Indochina, a refugee living in the United States of America and now its citizen. I was born Buddhist, educated in Catholic Elementary School knowing something about God and the Savior our Lord Jesus Christ but not in depth, then converted to Mormonism since 1988 until now so far. I used to live in a refugee camp in Morong, Bataan, Philippines for six months.
I read the Bible, and many books from other religions as well, because I am a curious man and I wanted to know who God is since I was seven years old.
When I entered the US, I went to many denominations but I could not find churches that fit my thought. I had once longed to see the new Zion or the New Jerusalem. But I have not found that place. I belonged to a world-renowned church, yet it failed to fulfill the Will of God. This church has existed on this earth for more than 180 years but it’s still under the old system of government in which human beings do things according to their will only and people are in bondage of sin, as usual.
Your teaching touches my heart deeply because it has a very precise and understandable goal for all mankind to build the new world where all resources are equally distributed to all. This is the main purpose of God to create this planet as heaven where there is no existence of sufferings, which are caused by hate that has entered human mind due to Satan’s tactic. You are right and very right indeed to urge all mankind to do the Will of God. I have longed for many, many years to see someone speaking the truth without fear or favor.
I know very well in my heart that your teaching offends the ideas of capitalism and communism. Now I find one who speaks only the truth, who is you. I must follow you with all my heart and my mind.
I feel very happy to understand things that I did not know before. You are really the Son of God for me, after the Lord Jesus Christ.
With high respect and sincerity,
Bro. Oudone Khounvisith of Haltom City, Texas
