Greatest Joy! - by Brad

Over the past couple weeks, Elliott has been asking a lot of questions about how you get to heaven. He has understood the simple plan of salvation, and today when I was home for lunch he told me that he was ready to "say the prayer."

Today my son is born-again! What overwhelming joy!

It's things like these that can make a father's eyes well up.

We are thrilled here! You shared a bit about his questions over the weekend, and it is wonderful to hear he is responding to the Spirit's prompting. This is what we are praying for regarding each of our grandchildren.

If by "well up" you mean "streaming down my face" then me too. What a JOYOUS day!

I asked Elliott what the best part of his day was and he said, "When I said my prayer." It's pretty fun to see him being joyful about this as well!
