We have decided, after fervent prayer and counseling with members who have known him, to shift our attention away from Daniel. He has rejected the BOM, and the church, and our priesthood authority, and chosen a different life. He has placed himself in a place where the devil uses him to subjugate his ex-wife and two daughters. Especially the youngest, Aviana. She has so much potential, and a very pure heart. Her father has poisoned her mind against the church (though not irreparably), and continues to indoctrinate her in his own brand of Christian doctrine. Our last visit, though, where we took a member and visited the girls while Daniel was away, we saw the light come on in her eyes as she began to pour out her heart about spiritual experiences she had had in the church and otherwise. There is still so much hope for her. But, just to emphasize how great a tool Daniel is in Satan's hands, in the middle of recounting a spiritual dream she had had, Daniel walked in and started ridiculing her for it. He made her cry. It was just so sad to see. We will rescue that family. The Lord has been preparing all that is needful, and now He is beginning the work of saving them. Please pray for this family.
I'll be sure to keep Grandma Hull in my prayers. I'm kinda done with having relatives in the hospital having various procedures performed.
That's about it. Love you all- only 58 days left!
