Here is an excerpt from Elder J. Jarman’s recent letter home:
Last week we had two of our investigators come to church. This week, we had two more, so our branch of 30 people shot up to 34, and those 4 bodies honestly seemed to fill the room.
One of those people is a less active kid named Brian. Brian is the only Teachers-quorum age kid in our Branch. We’ve been working with him since I got here, but he has never really shown interest in coming to church, and has been struggling with his belief. This week, he texted us. He wanted to come back to church, and he felt like he was missing out. It was honestly a miracle, we had an amazing lesson with him and we’re gonna continue meeting with him and teaching him. This week we had an Easter party for the Branch and we did a little Atonement object lesson with donuts and push-ups. It was really powerful, I’ll see if I can send the original story.
