American author, Jevon White, reveals 12 lessons he learned from the guardian monk of the Ark of the Covenant in a new book

BOSTON, MA, June 09, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Jevon White’s book chronicles his trip to Ethiopia and his chance encounter with the guardian monk of the Ark of the Covenant, who became a mentor and father figure teaching him, among other things, the 12 lessons recorded in his new book. During the journey, his baptism and his experiences with the monk introduce him to a better understanding of his vocation and who he is.

Through the personal friendship White developed with the Guardian Monk, he became the first known person in history to be baptized by a Guardian Monk of the Ark of the Covenant, and the first known foreigner in history to be baptized in the holy city of Aksum at St. Mary of Zion Church.

Equally important, White was given the task of building a new temple for the Holy Ark. This has traditionally been a mission carried out by kings and queens.

Born on the Caribbean island of Montserrat, White immigrated to the United States and settled in Boston. He attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia.

After college, White discovered the RasTafari faith. Driven by a deep desire to pray at the site of the Ark of the Covenant and to be closer to God, he undertook a pilgrimage to Axum, Ethiopia, where, by a stroke of divine intervention, had the rare privilege to meet the monk who guards the Ark of the Covenant.

His name firmly anchored in the annals of history, he shares his unforgettable experience in 142 pages.

White says of the experience, “I was very fortunate to be in the presence of the Guardian Monk of the Ark of the Covenant. He’s a hard person to meet, let alone have in public, let alone have as a mentor. He taught me many things. Things that might also be helpful to others. I share with the world some of the lessons he taught me.

The 12 Lessons I Learned from the Guardian Monk of the Ark of the Covenant are available in digital and paperback format at Amazon.
