The young twins, Guy and Berry, heard a sermon about Christ's second coming and they wondered if they were ready. Guy drew a picture of people being raised with Christ and went around asking people if they would like to be in the picture. The question challenged people to evaluate their own readiness. "The independence of the twins was a great puzzle to their stepmother," but the spirited children were good witnesses for Christ through their innocent ways.—Curiosmith (2015).
