This weekend we had the pleasure of going to church down in Fillmore, Utah. We went with Olaf's Aunt and Uncle who were hosting a family reunion at their cabin. We got to church almost an hour early in order to sit on soft chairs and we were just a hair late and still sat on the hard chairs. But it was all worth it. We were in a small church setting and got to see an Apostle from our church speak, Elder Russell M. Nelson.
He gave a very nice talk. In it he discussed a home invasion that took place while he was in Mozambique. Some robbers came in, roughed the people up, and took everything on them. Then the leader of the robbers put a gun to Elder Nelson's head and told him "I'm going to kill you and kidnap your wife." Elder Nelson told us that he had lived his life in preparation of meeting his Maker one day but didn't feel like this guy should get to make the decision when that time came. But he also realized he didn't have much choice in the matter. Then the leader pulled the trigger on the gun but it didn't go off. Then the robbers all ran away and left them there. They were not kind robbers, they broke one of the wife's arms.
At this point Baby turned to Olaf and said, "Of course it didn't work, the gospel protected him." Oh to have the faith of an eight-year-old.
