Sisters in Name and Faith
By Heather Wrigley
Maria and Diana D. are not just sisters; they are best friends too. Diana is 10 years old, and Maria recently turned 12. They live in Romania, where there are about 3,000 members of the Church. They keep their faith in Jesus Christ strong by going to church, reading the scriptures, and praying.
“In church I’ve learned to have faith in God,” Maria says. One day she had a test, so she prayed to Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ for help. When she got a good grade, she felt like Heavenly Father had helped her.
Diana says the Book of Mormon helps her have faith. “Every day that I read the Book of Mormon, I have a good day,” she says. Her favorite scripture story is the story of Joseph Smith. “He prayed, and God and Jesus Christ helped him,” she says.
