Last September I shared the story of three Amish families who made significant sacrifices to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While on an assignment in Ohio last weekend I had the privilege of meeting these faithful families. Since they were baptized they have faced challenges economic and otherwise as a result of shunning, but they are persevering. Their children are no longer permitted to attend the Amish school where they had been attending, but with the help of a missionary couple they have set up a school in one of the family’s homes. The children are vibrant and happy and excited about school. These families worship together as a group aligned with the Mount Vernon Ward in the Columbus Ohio East Stake. The sacrament is extremely meaningful to them each week, and they find great support in being together. They have all been sealed in the temple and attend regularly to do work for their ancestors. It was a blessing to be with them briefly last week.
