This afternoon we made our second visit with Kyle Janssen. This time we took the young Elders with us and we team taught him about the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. We also touched upon the restoration of the priesthood. We agreed to work towards a baptismal date of 19 October. We will teach him twice a week up to that time and hope that by then he will have gained a strong testimony of the our Savior and of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
After our visit with the Janssens, we drove up into Grovetown to meet up with Sister Stott and her two children so they could follow us on Post and attend October Fest. Her husband just deployed recently, she is rather timid, so we are trying to get her out of the house a little more and enjoy some fun activities. The two girls loved the carnival atmosphere and really enjoyed riding the rides. While there we ran into the Allen family. We hadn't seen them for quite sometime, but had a nice little visit with them. They are much more active now and attending church much more regularly. They looked great and seemed very happy.
This evening in our institute class we discussed acts of persecution, violence and so forth committed against ourselves, our families, our nation and so forth. We discussed what Heavenly Father expects of us in regards to persecution, war, and other acts of violence committed against us. We tied it in with our duties to also share the gospel as well.
