Mormon Missionaries Forgive Attackers

November 5, 2007

For those who read the sad news in an earlier blog, Skinheads Assault Mormon Missionaries, about my nephew and his companion who are serving as missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, there’s this article from Bolton News that might interest you.

Both of the young Elders impress me. To be a part of such a beating, and then to unconditionally forgive your offenders, I think that exemplifies charity, the true love of Christ.

From what I understand Elder’s Herrey and Woolsey are feeling better and are happy in continuing their work, teaching the gospel of Christ – the gospel of peace. Of course, happenings such as this leave a mark on the soul, so it’s just my wish that we keep praying for them, that the Lord’s strength will keep them and guide them always.

    The two Elders shows a great example! Just like Christ did when He forgave those who crusefited Him. And I am sure that He will bless Elder Woolsey and Elder Herrey for their example.
    And I can’t help thinking what the public in Bolton will think about the Elders and the church when they hear this. I meen they know the missionairies now and that they don’t think about revenge and will maybe listen next time they knock on their door.

    Love Jeannette
