Captain Moroni Comes to Visit
Yup, you read correctly. Captain Moroni did indeed come to visit our Primary yesterday.
Captain Moroni was pondering whether to ask for the heating/air conditioning to be turned off. Despite it being Winter, that room was unusually warm yesterday!
This is our Ward’s Seminary Teacher. He had presented a lesson to his Seminary Students as Captain Moroni a few weeks prior, and when I heard that he had this amazing costume and was about to return it, I pleaded with him to dress up as a Scripture Hero for Primary. He did so gladly.
I wish I could show you the looks on the children’s faces but due to privacy reasons, I can’t. Needless to say those precious faces were awestruck, amazed and absolutely delighted!
He asked the children to guess who he was. “Nephi”? ” “Daddy?” “Leonitis?” (WHO??) – Our Pianist was trying to confuse the kids ;D “Helium” (“No, I am not floating away”) “Captain Moroni” (“Yes! I am a captain, and my name is Moroni. That boy should get a prize, if there is a prize to be had”)
Captain Moroni shared a few passages of scripture with us outlining his character – Alma 48: 11-13,17.
He talked about putting on the whole Armour of God.
We sang Scripture Power for him at the end and I don’t think I’ve heard the kids sing it quite as enthusiastically as they did.
The question remains…how am I going to top this Scripture Hero??
