Two of our wonderful Sisters, Banks and Carpenter were out tracting today and had a wonderful experience. They came to a ladies door and when she answered she was crying. She told them she couldn't talk to them because she was too upset and "I don't have time for you." The Sisters showed great compassion and got her to visit with them. Her husband had left their family 6 weeks ago. In visiting with her for an hour at her door, she told them she had taken her children (ages 17.12.7) to the beach last weekend. While she was sitting on the beach, some missionaries had come by handing out Family Proclamations. She had sat there and read the whole thing. She said she thought "Wow, this is beautiful". When they told her this was from our church she told them she would love to hear about the gospel and they have made an appointment to start teaching the lessons. Heavenly Father sent them to her door at just the right moment.
