Grows and grows
The lady in red and the man on the end were baptized three weeks before this picture was taken. They were introduced to the Church by the lady in white, the two are sisters. The husband in white was not ready and his wife was sad but happy as her sister and brother-in-law and their three children went ahead to take baptisum. Now today the second family is ready. The last lesson in their home started just with the parents, but before it was over Elder McKinley was teaching seventeen people.
This family just grows (children)
And grows some more (sister of the husband)
And even when someone says no they call two days later for a Book of Mormon. ( There will be more chapters to this story. The first couple have already talked in Church, and today they each received callings in the presidency of Young Women and Young Men.)
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
