Sorry, I'm not talking about me, despite the fact that I am currently missing church to take a class for work, and despite the fact that I had Sangria with alcohol in it along with our authentic Spanish meal last night (I hope to revisit both of these subjects sometime after my return next week).
No, I'm referring to the two LDS missionaries we had visit us on Friday night. It was really surreal. At one point, after being asked some rather pointed questions, one of the young men went into what I can only describe as a trance-like state and started reciting his testimony. His eyes were glazed over; his voice was flat; his body was immobile.
As we discussed it after they left, we discussed the possibility (or indeed the likelihood) of a demonic influence. Those of you who know me know that I wouldn't bring this issue up lightly.
I bring this to your attention to ask for your continued prayers for these young men. They are scheduled to return on Wednesday, and we are tentatively planning to present the Gospel, the Biblical Gospel, to them then. Please pray that the Lord might hinder any negative spiritual influences, while at the same time through His Spirit opening their eyes & hearts to see the truth.
Their names are Staples & Bingham.
Cent must be back, as I notice I don't have access to his blog anymore. So I guess it would be a good time to express my thanks for him letting me post on his blog (particularly since I was being so disagreeable prior to his vacation).
