Today we had the opportunity to visit a woman named Janet Simonds, who lives in a convalescent home. Janet was diagnosed with Cancer and it has spread to many different places in her body. Janet Simonds is in her 80s and because of her age and her health the doctors cannot do surgery. The Doctors plan is to help her stay as comfortable as possible as she slowly slips from this life to the next.
As we walked into ther room, I noticed that she was skinnier than the last time we had seen her. As we sat at her bedside, we read to her from the Book of Mormon about the peace that Jesus Christ can bring into our lives. We testified to her of the sacrifice of the Father's only begotten Son for her. After bearing our testimonies, we sat quietly next to her. For several minutes we sat in silence as Janet relaxed in her bed. After a while, we prayed with her and left. There was more said in that time of silence than we could have ever said if we would have had several hours to talk with her. The spirit filled the air that we didn't.
I'm grateful for the power of the Holy Ghost. With out him, our message cannot be taught. This video is great, check it out.
