My grandmother Anna Maria Theresia Lormess Fischer was converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ by her Catholic Priest who had suddenly died. He appeared to her at dawn pointing to a book he held in his hands. It was the Book of Mormon...and then he was gone. My grandmother did not know he'd died that week and searched for the book until she finally found it laying by a trash can in Breslau, Germany after WWI. She read it and was converted. She found the missionaries, they did not find her. Her story is shared on my FamilySearch's Memories page. That is how our family became members of our church. Through angels that have passed.
This is so inspiring and I know from personal experience that angels do help us. Thank you for reminding us. I love Annie Henrie's painting!
Oh!!! Thank you so much for bringing so many quotes and stories together to confirm my thoughts on pleading for help and stepping up my efforts to do all our Father is asking me to do.
THanks, Sis. Pratt, for pulling all these inspiring and sweetly touching examples together into you message of hope and faith and love. Who would remain unmotivated after learning of the Father’s great love for us and providing us with His angels—our own family gone ahead of—to aid and guide us? As we DO missionary work, temple work/family history and nurture our families and friends, the angels will be there.
I know this is true. I am working on my Master's Thesis in U.S. West History at my university and I am researching history in a local community. I cannot tell how many times I have received confirmation that I am doing the Lord's work! THEY KNOW AND THEY ARE HELPING! I get confirmation on the names in history and the places that are familiar to people on the other side. Work of this sort, for the gathering of Israel is so important that you WILL receive help! AND THEY LOVE YOU FOR DOING IT!
This is so beautiful and spiritual teaching lesson. Thanks to Meridian Magazine for it publication. I will like to share with others but this page only allow me witn emails, no texting, no messenger, can you help me please?
Thank you for this. It is a beautiful piece and I know it to be true. There have been angels around me my entire life. I thank the Lord for this knowledge. This is a wonderful reminder of that.
