Thank you for sharing. I, too, was baptized in California Fresno Mission. It has been 50 years since a dear friend, Lawrence Page, baptized me. What a blessing the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been in my life.

I love this story. The Lord can keep track of each one of us and according to our faithfulness we can receive such tender mercies in our lives. Better yet we can be the vessel to delivery such tender mercies.

Only those who are with God will understand how the glory of God works.

WOW!!! My cousin is John Beck. He is such a stalwart example to me! First I found out he was my boss when I got a job working at CES and found out he was over the whole program! Now I read this awesome story!!! I appreciate the culture of obedience he carries with him! How grateful to see the results of his obedience and the blessing of the sweet family and missionaries there in the Fresno mission!!!

Pres. Gonzalez - what an amazing and uplifting story. How wonderful it would be if you could get "Peter"'s permission to share it with the Ensign so more members could be inspired by it.
