A Miracle

Boldog Új Évet!

Happy New Year! Life goes by way too fast!

The coolest thing that happened last week was when Elder Austin and I along with Lackó, one of the youth here, tried to visit a few inactive members. We couldn’t get in touch with the one we looked for first so we decided to try to visit someone who had been on our minds lately. He was really surprised and actually very happy to see us. He invited us in and we had a super long program with him.

To make a long story short, this less active member told us that he regrets leaving the church and that he was happier when he was fully active! He kept on saying that. Something happened to him recently to change his heart and now he recognizes what he had once had in the past but is now missing. He came to church yesterday for the first time in a while and everybody was super glad to see him! He had such a good experience that he wants to come to all of the activities! What super great news!

The thing that was so neat about this experience is that we didn’t do anything! The Lord did all of the work and we just witnessed the wonderful blessings of His work! I really hope that this member will continue to come to church because he is such an awesome guy. So, the lesson for me is: don’t give up on people who aren’t active in the church. You never know when the Lord will step in and show us one of His miracles!
