I Have Seen Him Change Completely

Elder Terrance Kutney

My miracle story takes place in Seto—beloved pottery city.  I transferred into the area in January with President Baird’s assurance that there were prepared people waiting for me. 

We visited an off-and-on investigator named Koike.  We were able to make an appointment with him and came back the next week.  He had been an investigator for 10 years.  This time, however, he had been thinking deeply after receiving a bit of a shock—his wife’s mother had died. 

To make a long story short, in our first lesson we taught the atonement and asked him “How would you feel if we told you that you could be forgiven of all your past mistakes?”  He was deeply moved and said, after some hesitation in stuttering English, “No, No! I can’t…”  

We could tell that he was feeling the Spirit work upon him, so we testified of the reality of Christ’s Atonement and asked him to be baptized.  He accepted, set a date, and hasn’t missed a day at church since.  I have seen him change completely.  We can see it, he can feel it and his wife knows it.  The next miracle is for his wife to join him.
Elder Voss and Elder Kutney, on right.
