The real message of this family's story is in how this changed Marlene. She is so happy! Her countenance has totally changed from that family home evening we went to. Her 20+ years of inactivity are behind her. The "golden families" are right in front of us among the less-active and part-member families. In addition to bringing children and single moms into the gospel we can bring whole families that we can prepare for the temple.
One more side note. Elder Hernandez and Elder Carter are both very obedient missionaries. Good things happen to obedient missionaries.
