Our little missionary...

Last year Ashley had a best friend, Avery, from school who didn't belong to any particular church so Ashley decided she would invite her to go to church with us.
Avery came to church, Ashley gave her a Book of Mormon and
one of my music CD's and then she had to move away.
We kind of lost contact with them until we received a phone call last night
and they informed us
their whole family was baptized!
Ashley thought nothing would come of her desire to share the gospel, but indeed it planted a seed for their family. It goes to show you anyone can be a missionary no matter your age or circumstance. We can't imagine not having the gospel in our lives, it brings such peace and happiness to us! Thanks Ashley for being a great example and showing us the importance of sharing the gospel!

Ash, I'm so impressed! You have a great start at your age. Think how many people you will convert before you are as old as I am! Love you, Granny Annie

It kinda makes me not want to be so scared of missionary work...

Ashley, I remember taking you over to play with Avery before they moved away - isn't it exciting that she and her whole family now have what you and your family have - the gospel in it's fullest!

Amazing! You never know when or how something you have done can affect another person or in this case the entire family. What an awesome story!
