"Suffer the children to come to me"

There are only 3 active children in my Primary class, out of 11 children on the roster. So today I felt prompted to have my girls write notes to all those who don't come, just to say that we miss them and love them, and to invite them to come join us.

One of the girls decided to write her testimony in one of these letters:

"We would like to invite you to church to join us. We have been learning about the pioneers and we have started singing some Christmas songs.
I'd like to bear my testimony to say I know that this church is the true church and I know that Heavenly Father lives and I know Jesus Christ lives and I know that the Bible has the true stories and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

My heart was just so touched by 1) her initiative, 2) her faith and courage, and 3) her pure, sweet testimony which she was happy to share when she saw the opportunity. I hope I can follow her example this week.
