Nother shorty sorry.

K so this week i don't have much time again, i'm sorry about that but i was recounting this story to a friend of mine and i thought you'd all appreciate it. but first, my week went well, another 2 months down and next week i could be in another city. but nothing super crazy happened, they are prepping the pipes like they do once a year in my apartment building, so for the next 4 days we only have ice cold showers .... but here's my story!!

k now i want to talk about crazy people.  so let me tell you all this, first of all crazy people who see things would be crazy whether or not they had names to put to the ghosts and the voices.  Some crazy people think that it's a saint or the virgin mary, but let me tell you that people who are not religious who just go crazy, still are, and they say they see aliens and ghosts and all kinds of stuff.   Let me tell you a story of my grandfather.   So my grandpa had dementia.  He had a clinical mental handicap and yeah, he was definitely crazy.  He had the mind of maybe a 6-10 year old. But once, during testimony meeting, when we were taking care of him, he got up to bear his testimony.  Now my family and I were like, OK, here we go, he's going to go off about World War 2 and tell us how he beat the Germans with 2 shotguns (didn't happen for realz), but he got up, and we're all kinda sitting there anticipating what's going to happen, and in that moment, he starts bearing the most profound testimony I have ever heard.  With clarity in his mind as if he was a healthy fully functioning man, he bore testimony of his passed wife and he told how he would be with her soon again  He bore witness of the Book of Mormon and of the prophet.  He told how he knew the things which he said were true.   Tears came to his eyes and a shakiness came over his voice as he bore witness of all of these things.  This man who had lived through and fought in WWII and who had lived through the great depression, who had seen life, stood that day, and,  in Clarity,  told us what was really true, without a hint of his disabled mind showing, without a single piece of his mind seemingly gone.  After closing his testimony, as he walked away from the stand, he turned to my dad (on the stand) and stuck out his tongue, haha and he was but a child again.  That's the Power of the Holy Ghost! That is the power of God! Even in the midst of his clouded mind, this man, through the spirit, was able to praise God and Jesus Christ!  That's amazing to me!  This stuff is true I promise!
