Brother Boye..I was so tickled when I read your story. WOW...your desire to
share the Book of Mormon brought a great experience to your life. I'm proud
of your choice to do so. It is a marvelous and inspiring book for anyone to
read...I know Heavenly Father was very pleased you took the courage to share
with a stranger. You should feel very good about it.
In the article it says, "The Lord uses ordinary people to accomplish
extraordinary things." And sometimes the Lord uses extraordinary people to
accomplish ordinary things. Alex, you are "extraordinary" person and
the ordinary thing is one man handing another man a book that can change his
life. Brother Boye....I love what you have done for your brothers and sisters.
I love you and what you stand for!!
Brigham Young provided a copy of the Book of Mormon as a gift to Queen Victoria,
but if I remember right, he wasn't able to present it directly to her
Well, my best guess is that this event probably happened about 1992, or even
earlier. So I would be surprised if it would be easy to find more information
Excuse me. I was wondering if anyone could provide a link to the footage of Alex
Boye teaching the "first discussion" on national television in England.
That really must be something to see. I searched for it on YouTube and could not
find a single thing. Anyone have a link? It must be someplace seeing as this
would be such a unique event. Anyone? Also could anyone help me find any article
whatsoever dealing with this in the British press? There must be at least one.
I searched and could not find a thing. Can anyone help? Anyone?
The Osmonds Mother, Olive, gave a Book Of Mormon to Queen Elizabeth, (Charles
mother) in the 1970's at a Royal Command Performance in London. So thats
now 2 in the Royal Family who have one now. Lets hope they do read it.
I'm sure Prince Charles has probably read The Book of Mormon before.
And the word goes forth...
Way to go, Alex! I seem to recall another young man telling a king about the
Gospel. Almost an entire nation was converted. The Spirit whispered and you
listened and acted. Whatever happens now, you've chosen well.
Red Corvette,Actually several leaders and dignitaries of this world
(both today and in the past) have read the Book of Mormon. I know that a sitting
U.S. president has read it (with good things to say) and several other leaders.
Many people don't convert to the church but still have read it with favor
(some of which even believed it contained truthful accounts while not
converting). It may not mean anything to you or other critics but it means
something to us and that isn't a bad thing.LDS members are
happy to share beliefs and what is believed to be good. I would expect nothing
less from all my fellow human beings. If a book inspired you to help others and
have faith in what has proven good in your life- why would you not share it with
others? Why doubt whether the man will read it? Is he above reading it? He is as
human and curious or not curious as everyone else. If he likes its message,
great. If not, at least he had the opportunity to choose for himself what he
thinks.Isn't sharing good things great? I think so.
The inspiration does not have to be for Prince Charles. It may be for someone
who heard the discussion that was taught. No doubt in my mind that someone was
or will be touched by that message.
You can never go wrong when you listen to the spirit and the spirit speaks for
many reasons, sometimes it can simply to test our faith, and sometimes something
greater than we can comprehend and in the Lord's due time. Bless you Alex,
for listening to the still small voice and obeying. You are a faithful and
choice brother. Your story started my day off great. Bless You!
Alex Boye is no ordinary person. He has turned my life upward, and many
I could only asume that he would read the Book of Mormon from what you said.What
you did was great, being the great missionary.
Can you imagine the stir and controversy if someone in the Royal family actually
converted to the LDS church? Particularly the prince, as he is to become the
Trustee for the Anglican church someday.
Great story.I wonder if he read it and if he took Moroni's
promise to heart.
Tears in my eyes :-)
We may never know in this life what happened next with that book, but it
certainly impacted Alex in a great way.
"Oh that I were an angel...and could have the wish of my heart," words
that at least for a moment, Alex Boye must have felt as he handed The Book to
the Prince, and taught the first discussion on national tv. Love what he did,
love the words and the song.
This story brought a HUGE smile to my face! This goes to show that when the
Spirit is behind us, what need we fear. If something is Father's will then
it can be accomplished....kings, presidents, or dictators aside. The key is
humility and worthiness which Alex must have had for this all to have happened.
I'm very proud of you, hon. You were humble enough to be in tune and
go with the flow of the spirit to put self aside and do what was asked of
you...who knows what wonderful repercussions will come from this?Way to
go, Brother Alex!
Well, that certainly brought some tears of joy. What courage and desire was
shown by Alex risking all to give the greatest gift you could give to someone of
his stature. I do believe someday Prince Charles will read that book and the
spirit will take over and bless his heart and life more than anything else
could. If more of our youth had that kind of desire and courage to risk for
something like the Book of Mormon.
Good example for the rest of us. Way to go Alex. You inspire me.
Let's hope some day Prince Chuck reads it. Maybe the bride of Chuck also.
Love it, great story! No excuse for being nervous about passing on a Book of
Mormon now. Maybe the possibility of Romney has made necessary a
liitle understanding about him. Any leader would check out what makes another
What a sweet story. The courage some of our youth display in these latter days
is refreshing and their example should be of great meaning to others. BRAVO!
Amen, Brother Alex!
Kudos Alex. You're an inspiration on so many levels.
Red Corvette, Alex didn't have the prompting to give it for naught, maybe
Prince Charles read it, maybe someone else will read it, but I have no doubt
that copy of the Book of Mormon will touch someone's life.
Yay! That is completely wonderful! Way to go!
I love the Alex Boye singing solo's in the Tabernacle Choir. I love the
Brother Boye whose testimony matches his singing.
What a fine example,Brother Boye! You rock!!
Well done...from a little seed grows the mighty oak...
