While I was serving a mission up in Montana, I had the great privilege to meet a man by the name of Milo. He had been investigating the church for a while and when I got to the area he was able to share his story with me. He grew up in a polygamist colony down in Mexico, so he knew a lot about the church. However, he was part of a break-off group, and once he left the colony he never felt to find out more about the true church. He had many family members who had left the colony and joined the church. After much time, his nephews invited him to attend the YSA ward activities. Once he did, he slowly came to church and then took the discussions. Milo’s life was completely changed, and he came to know many things for himself and to know they were true. His most special experience was when he came to know that the prophet today is called of God.
Milo changed a lot; he knew the gospel was true and was changing him. He felt a desire to share it and to help be a good example to other family members and friends who were not members of the church. It was amazing to see how quickly he started to share the gospel and wanted his family to have that same joy and goodness he felt. He was the perfect example of taking the blessings we receive and sharing the good news of the gospel with others who don’t know it yet.
