Last Sunday we had a dinner appointment with a member and their daughter, she’s 11, invited her friend to church and dinner with us that day. Her parents are less active members of the church, and we were able to meet her for the first time! The members set up a time for us to go over and talk with her family, and so we went over this week to meet her mom, her brother, and her sister. We taught them the Restoration, they all loved us, and asked us to come back. We went back last night and talked to them about the Book of Mormon and read some of it with them. All the kids loved it and were fighting for the chance to read a verse. It was cool to see their mom loving how actively the kids were engaged and beaming when her kids bore their testimony of prayer and experiences they’ve had when they felt the Spirit as they’ve served someone or read the Bible or prayed. I love teaching kids–they are so happy and eager to learn and so ready to feel and recognize the Spirit.
I love you all!
