After they had lived in Mesa for about 5 years, missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints started showing up at the door. These "Mormon" missionaries wanted to teach my Grandma's family about their faith. At first, Grandma's father turned them away, but when they continued to come, he decided to let them in. They taught him the gospel of Jesus Christ. Grandma's father tested what they said, found it to be true, and was baptized. He then asked his wife and daughters to listen to the missionaries, as he had. They didn't have to join the church if they didn't want to, but he wanted the to at least hear the message.
They listened. My grandma was baptized and confirmed into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she was about 11 years old. To this day she is faithful to the commitments and covenants she made that day and on other occasions since.
I'm so grateful for the example for my grandma and the example she has given me to follow. Her story shows me that even when I am young I can follow the plan God has for me.
