I haven't written anything for a while, but something happened that I need to share.
About 2 years ago, Wendy Ledbetter, a friend, found a Book of Mormon in her home that Hanna had shared her testimony in. She gave it to me at Church and said she felt we should have it. It was something the Young Women had done sometime before Hanna's death while she was in Young Women's. I gratefully, and tearfully I might add, took the gift home and showed Peter. I knew it needed to do more than just sit on a shelf.
Sometime after this, I found out our dear friend Mary Lou's son was going to be serving his mission in the Salt Lake Mission! I knew what I needed to do through the still small voice. I got Elder McDonald's address from his parents and packaged up the Book of Mormon, with our added testimonies of the Eternal nature of families and sent it to Elder Christian McDonald to give to an investigator.
Fast forward 18 months. We got a letter from Elder McDonald the other
day,that touched our hearts. I want to share it with anyone who cares to
read. It is very special and heart warming.
