Title Hello, New World
Description told of a new American church founded by a young man who had had a vision, who had talked with God." "Surely, Anders, you did not listen to them." "Yes, I did, and their message has given me serious thought." "But you are happy in our Lutheran church?" "I have been, but I must hear these men again. I shall go to Uppsala tomorrow and look for them." He arose early and was gone before the household was awake. Johanna hoped this further investigation would show him how ridiculous were the claims of these men. The day seemed very long. Bedtime came and she popped the children into their sofe beds, then sat under a tree to await the return of her husband. When he finally came he joined her and together in the lingering twilight of the night they talked. Anders had become convinced the message of these men was right. Johanna's arguments, pleas, and tears availed nothing. The rest of that summer he read, studied and went to Uppsala or Stockholm to see the missionaries. Sometimes he camp back with the fright-ening news that the missionaries had been arrested or driven out of a village. To Johanna this seemed disgraceful and she worried about Ander's association with such people. All these things she hoped would chance him, but they seemed to make his faith stronger, and on a beautiful September day in 1871 he was baptized in the River Fyris in Uppsala into the Latter-Day Saint Church. The Baron and Baroness were aghast. "Before it is too late, Anders, you must realize the folly of this. You are fooled and misled," they pleaded, "Give up this madness now." "No, I am sure very sure it is right. I also know I must eventually leave here and go to Utah." Seeing Anders was determined they tried to persuade Johanna. "If Anders is taken in by these imposters, let him go, but you and the children stay with us." 32
