Once upon a time…

…. there was a man who walked into work not knowing how the day would turn out.  He had a conversation with one of his co-workers .   She bore a simple testimony of her faith and he wanted to know more.  She invited him to the Hill Cumorah pageant and he went.  He was so amazed by how happy and friendly the people were there that he did not really watch the pageant.  The next night he went back, watched the pageant, and, to his surprise, agreed to have the missionaries come to his home. The lesson went well, and he even went to church that day.  He loved hearing the members speak and not just read from the Bible.  The Elders would meet him at Subway, during his lunch break, to be taught.  He accepted an August 27th baptism date and actually met it.  Elder Larson told him the day he was baptized  to” never, ever forget the feeling you have felt from the beginning to now and forever.”  Steve said, “There is no way I can ever forget this feeling”.

“He is truly happy and you can see it!  It all started because one day at work, a lady bore pure,simple, testimony that changed a man’s life.  I would encourage every one of you to bear your testimony  whenever you get the chance because you  never know whose life you will change.”

    I loved your story… that ‘feeling’ is something a person cannot deny as long as they are willing to recognize it for what it is… it was this same type of feeling that lead us to join the church after listening to the message the missionaries brought to us. It has been 23 years now and it’s the best thing my husband and I have ever done!! Thanks for sharing!
