Sisters Jones and Sitthidamrong were not the first missionaries to work with and teach John Crichton. His family, from Samoa, had been members for many years and even donated family land for the Samoan Temple to be built upon. The sisters just fellowshipped with the family and took John to the Hamilton New Zealand Temple Visitors Centre! As he stood in front of the Christus--he had a longing feeling to be there clean and worthy as he stood before the Saviour! It was then that he knew he needed to be baptized--that his sins might be washed away through our Saviour and Redeemer!
Brother Fruen, friend and great saint was instrumental in helping his friend John into the waters of baptism!
Sister Crichton and their 5 children have waited 25 years for this day! Congratulations Crichton family!
