  1. I have to completely agree with this, with out the laying on there is no annointing. I have seen this personally! Is the picture of the girl Carrissa Hale from the Auburn church? If not she has a twin!

  2. Thank you for your comments, Donna. The couple here are my grandchildren, Joel and Aisha Buxton.

    Blessings to you.

    Such an awesome article, and I love your Joel. He was such a great student in my class in Rialto, more years ago than I want to count. Well, really–I love that God has been faithful all these years, so counting them is better than the alternative.Making me feel a lot older, but so proud for you, and Elder Buxton, and Joel and Aisha. Congratulations!!
