“Remember,” New Era, Aug. 2005, 51


It is amazing being a missionary.

I get to see miracles from God firsthand.

The gospel we teach changes lives.

It moves hearts and desires.

The things we teach are like whispers from back home.

When we get done teaching, the people accept readily.

It is as if they have always known it.

Sometimes it is as if they have forgotten a song,

And when they hear someone singing, it comes right back,

And we can’t help but sing too.

I don’t think we teach as much as

Help people remember.
