Last Sunday we got to attend church in Kerman, and it was too good not to remember.
A very dear friend of mine there, Wendy Lane and her husband Warren
were leaving on a year mission to Crockett, Texas.
Their talks were amazing and I could have listen to them all day.
Here are some key points I want to remember:
*Warren quoted the Fresno Mission President by saying:
"Attitude and Effort are EVERYTHING."
*Wendy talked about how happy it made her feel when people would do things for her children.
She compared this to how Christ must feel when we serve one another.
* She also talked about how years ago she remembers this day when things
were not going well at home. She just needed to escape for awhile so she went
to see a lady in their ward who was going through lots of health issues and was homebound.
Wendy just sat and visited with her for awhile and she could feel the light coming back into herself.
She went home happy again. The power of service.
*Wendy also talked about a woman in her ward with terminal cancer.
She was not doing very well when she showed up at church one day with
baked goods she made for the Young Women's Bake Sale.
Wendy told her she shouldn't have done that and this woman said,
"I want to support the Young Women."
She was a team player and thought of others even in her great time of need.
* Love this quote from Wendy:
"LOVE is the greatest changing agent there is."
She said Mom was one of her dearest friends, and what she loved most about her was how practical she was.
Yep, that's a good way to describe Mom.
