One time, when I was a little guy I took my little brothers and sisters with me into a forest.  After a few hours, when we tried to turn around and return home and the sun was starting to set, I realized we were lost.  I was 9, my brother was 7 and my sister was 5.  I felt afraid and didn’t know what to do.  I rounded up my brothers and sisters and prayed to Heavenly Father that we would find our way back home.  Amazingly, we were able to find our way back even though it was getting dark.

As I listened to this recent story of a girl who was lost in a swamp, I remembered the experience I had as a young child and how God answered my prayers and I’m sure those of my mother.  I thought it was amazing how the man who found this girl was led by the Lord and how he was prepared with so much faith to find her.  I believe that faith is belief in God + action and this gentleman definitely showed great faith.  Check out the story on the MSNBC website below:
