Blessings Restored

We had a nice experience this morning. One of my missionaries and his wife came to the Area office to have their priesthood blessings restored after 8 years. When we was coming through the gate, he heard someone say my name and he wanted to come find me immediately. They told him he had to go upstairs and have the blessing first, but when he got done they came downstairs and we had a sweet visit. He has a faithful wife and three kids, 15, 13, 8. He makes shoes. He has been faithfully going to church for many years and now he can go back to the temple. We road a bus together and got off at the temple bus stop where we went home and they went to buy garments. It was a sweet visit. We love the concept of repentence.

Yes, thank heavens for repentance, or none of us would be standing at the second coming! Just read all of the references on Stand. My word for the day! D&C133:56, don't you just love it?

My stake pres. calls it a gospel of second chances. From getting to say the sacrament prayers over and over til they're right to getting rebaptized, we surely have a patient Father. Thanks for sharing this and Happiness to them!
