Sunita's Conversion


Elders Ralph and Beutel, Sister Jones, Sunta, Sister Johnston and Sunita's daughter.

Sunita believed her entire life, but she thought there was a part of religion that could not be found. She grew up Catholic but knew she needed something more. She moved to Norway with her daughter feeling she was being led by God.


Elder Beutel and Ralph were visiting Oslo and felt like they should eat at Subway. While they were paying, the woman at the register asked them if they belonged to the church. They answered saying they were volunteers for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and told her briefly about the restoration, The Book of Mormon and personal revelation. With a light in her eyes, she say she wanted to meet to learn more. They explained that they lived in Bergen but had two friends in Oslo who would teach her.


Sunita met Sister Benedict and Jacobsen for the first discussion. At the end, she asked if they could meet the next day to learn more. She progressed rapidly and after the third lesson committed to be baptized. When asked why she decided to be baptized, she said the most important reason was to come closer to God. "Before I met you I felt I had just 50 percent of the truth. It was the Book of Mormon I lacked and needed." She has a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and the power it contains.


Sunita spoke at own her baptism on May 8, 2021 and said that when someone asked her if she was being baptized because she thought she was going to die, she responded by saying, "No, I was dead before, but now I am alive."
