John met with the stake president Tuesday night. After meeting with each of us individually a few weeks ago, he now feels that it is time to recommend John for baptism. This Sunday, John and I will meet with the disciplinary council. It will be very different from the last time we met. Instead of feeling anxious, I feel peace and love. John is on the path of repentance, and I have seen the truthfulness of Elder Bednar’s words as they have played out in John’s life. A year can seem so long, yet it can go by in the blink of an eye. . .
