Dear Family and Friends of the Florida Orlando Mission,
During the year, 2015, we would like to share with you some of the spiritual experiences our Missionaries have had here in the Florida Orlando Mission. We look forward to you reading them and sharing in the spirit of missionary work.
We love and thank you for your prayers and support.
Our love, President and Sister Berry
I had the most incredible experience on my mission when I met the
Kirchman family. A member in the ward invited us to visit his friends
and share the message of the Restoration. When we arrived to the visit
the spirit was so strong and all of the family members participated
and loved the message. As we shared the first vision with them the
spirit filled the room and tears filled everyones eyes. They all
accepted the invitation to follow the Savior Jesus Christ and be
The day before their baptism we got a phone call that informed us that
Glen, the husband and father of the family was entering the hospital
and we needed to postpone the baptism. The next week we received
another call and Bonita (the wife and mother) asked us to come and
give Glen a blessing before he passed away. As we blessed Glen, the
spirit filled the room once again with his family sitting by his bed
side. Glen passed away that same night.
Shortly after Glens funeral we met with Bonita and invited her to be
baptized once again. Tears filled her eyes and she testified that she
knew it was time for her to be baptized and that she wants to be
sealed to her husband for all time and eternity. Bonita Kirchman was
baptized and is preparing to be sealed to her husband the beginning of
the year 2016.
Families are central to Heavenly Fathers plan. Through the gospel of
Jesus Christ Families can be happy and successful in this life, as
well as be sealed for all time and eternity in the time after this
