Just Imagine...

In preparing my remarks for yesterday's LDS Church Sacrament meeting (worship service)in the Hedgesville, West Virginia Ward (congregation), my personal prayer and concern was to be prompted by the Holy Ghost to share principles that would best touch the hearts and help others.
Accordingly, just imagine my reaction, after the conclusion of the worship service, when a child handed me the following note on behalf of her parent:

"Brother Kump,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful testimony with us today. You have been the answer to my prayers. Thank you for all that you do. (Name redacted, to preserve the privacy of the note's author)"

Postscript: The foundation of my remarks was Doctrine & Covenants Section 1, Verse 23 and Section 64, Verse 33.

It's a Miracle!

The photographer made even me look good. Kudos to Martin Valent, official photographer for the West Virginia Legislature.
