Conversion story from Ohio

We were reminded today that the members of the Church are to be the finders of investigators, and the missionaries are to do the teaching. Andrew sent us his usual Thursday e-mail earlier today. In it, he told this recent conversion story. Opening our mouths and sharing the gospel often yields spectacular results. This is about as "textbook" as it gets:

This week has been a crazy one with such exciting developments. We had a family, the Christensens, this week that showed a prime example of just opening your mouth. They got home from church two weeks ago and the neighbors noticed their clothes. They began to ask where they go to church and mentioned that they had been looking for a church because they had a bad experience in their last church. An hour and a half later -- Lynn and her son Josh had a BoM, a conference Ensign, and had accepted the invitation to attend church and to meet the missionaries. The rest is pretty amazing. They loved church, the ward was great at fellowshipping and welcoming. We taught them on Monday night at the Christensen's home and it was simply amazing. They accepted the invitation to be baptized in Aug. The Lord is constantly preparing his children to recieve the gospel -- we just need to wake up sometimes and SPEAK UP!
