WRONG....dead wrong! A member of the Bishopric gently instructed the boys to prepare and bless that one piece of bread and then take it the the sister. We all sat quietly as she renewed her covenants and once again had the blessing of being as clean as the day she was baptised.
Two things sank in for me yesterday. First, just how important the sacrament is. I mean, I've always known that it is important... but yesterday I realized how much Heavenly Father wants each and every one of us to have the opportunity to participate in that sacred ordinance. Second, as I sat there watching these pre-missionaries receive counsel from our Bishopric and then reverently follow those instructions... I thought about how wise Heavenly Father is to begin training and molding us from the time we are very young, to become missionaries... because are we not all missionaries?
I am grateful that we belong to a church that gives us opportunities for "public speaking" as young as sunbeam age. I am grateful that we have Cub Scouts and Activity Days to teach self-reliance and service...and fun! I am soooooo grateful for the Young Women and Young Men programs that teach life skills to awkward teens! All these programs in place to help us become better sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers....people....MISSIONARIES!
