This past week, we were at a less-active family's house. We have been working with this family forever, and we were kind of at a standstill. But, this time when we were there, the Young Men - for an activity - came and visited their 14 year old son. This made the mom so happy that she started thinking about coming back to church. She was even encouraging her son to go to Young Men's next week! :)
Moral of the story: Members have power! Many times even more than missionaries! Members can do things that missionaries can't - like make people feel wanted and welcome at church. Church is so important for so many reasons. One of the reasons is we can look out for and fellowship one another.
