This is a conversation Kort and I had tonight after his bed time prayers (which included his regular plea for a baby brother or baby sister to *puh-leeeeease * come to our family)
Do you know what we need to do instead of just praying for a baby?
Oh? How did you learn about that?
Yesterday, my teachers said that there was a little girl, and her family got into a car crash, and she got hurt the worst and had to go to, you know, the hospital...and she wouldn't wake up.
So, she was in a coma?
Yeah, that's what it was, a coma. So, the Bishop of their world...
You mean their "ward?"
Yeah, the Bishop of their ward, got up at the microphone on Sunday and asked the whole ward to have a fast and to pray for the little girl, and they DID it! The whole "word" did a fast, and then they got a really good feeling that everything was going to be okay, and then the little girl woke up and she WAS okay!
Bud! That's so great! I am so happy to know that you listened so well in your class (given his past Sunday School track record..you have no idea how happy ;)
Well, I was thinking that a fast would work for your tummy so we can have a baby. Can you call the Bishop and ask him to have everyone fast? (That would be a fun phone call!)
How about if we call all of our family and ask them to have a fast with us instead?
Okay, like Gaga and Papo and Nama and Grandpa Jim and all my aunts and uncles?
Okay. Can we do it tomorrow?
(I sort of think he's the greatest child on the planet...can you blame me?)
