A Missionary Here and There

Just thought I'd share a little something about Adam. I sent this to him in his email Sunday: Brother Leonard stood up and spoke about ordering your plaque. He explained that the top 50 scriptures that are ordered are less expensive to put on the plaques because they are ordered so frequently. He said yours wasn't one of those. He said it's not a big deal but when he read the scripture he was surprised. He read it to us and said he couldn't think of a better missionary scripture and said he was surprised it wasn't in the top 50. He then went on to remind us of how important it is for us as ward members to follow Pres. Rodarte's counsel and to invite people to church. He was so spiritual and did such a great job. Afterward I thanked Brother Leonard for the reminder and he said, "It was your son that reminded me. He is doing missionary work here even though he is there." So thank you for your scripture that helped to remind all of us of our challenge and to recommit to look for opportunities to share the gospel. For those of you who are curious, the scripture he put on his plaque is Mosiah 28:3. Adam's response was...I told Derek that I thought that was awesome that he used my scripture, I like that one a lot. I guess I'm doing work for 3 wards haha. (Derek had emailed him about the scripture too.)
