“You Can’t Close My Heart” – Ghanaian Saints and the Freeze

Article on LDS.org 6 Jan 2016:

“June 14, 1989, the government of Ghana announced a ban on  all meetings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Meetinghouses were locked, and foreign missionaries were given one week to leave the country. Church leaders authorized members in Ghana to hold sacrament meetings in their homes. The “freeze,” as this ban came to be called, tested the resolve of Latter-day Saints in Ghana. Many Church members were criticized by their friends for persisting in their faith, and a few were arrested for questioning.”
