Heather, Ayden and Prentice all came to church this week and are super pumped for their baptism! We taught them all about the temple and being sealed together as a family this week and they set that as a goal they want to have in a year from now. Chad (Heather's husband) is a member. He was baptized when he was 14 but has been inactive since he was 16, now 40. Their story is pretty amazing. They were super close to getting divorced when they sat down one night and Heather told him that she knew what they needed to do. They needed to go to church. His church. Because in all the ups and downs she knew that his testimony in the Book of Mormon was the only thing that had remained constant and untouched in his crazy life. So they did it. They took the leap of faith, called the missionaries, now in 2 weeks they will all be baptized, they have a much happier family and relationship, and one day will be sealed together.
It's amazing that in the midst of all that, Heather had the faith to know what they needed to do. The Book of Mormon is amazing and the truth found in it truly changes who we are if we let it. Only the pure gospel of Jesus Christ can do that.
Sorry it's short this week and I have bad news. Sister Petersen and Sister Anderson stole my camera all week for splits, so I have no pictures to send home. sorry
Love, Elder Cox
