Witnessing on a Bus

by | Feb 18, 2016 | Miracles | 1 comment


Today, we’re sharing our second restoration testimony. This one was submitted by Brother Don Ross.

Several years ago, as I was leaving work from New York City, riding a commuter bus home to the New Brunswick, NJ area, I was reading the Book of Mormon. I was thoroughly engrossed in reading it.

A woman sitting next to me asked me, “What are you reading?” I answered, “The Book of Mormon?” She then asked, “What is it about?”

We rode some 30 miles and all the while during our travel home, I have absolutely no recollection of what I was explaining and saying to her about the Book of Mormon! All I can recall of our conversation is when we were exiting the New Jersey Turnpike at New Brunswick, I heard her say to me, “I never heard such a story. What a powerful story!”

I can honestly say I have no knowledge, none at all, of what I said to her during our conversation. It is my sincere and humble belief that the Lord Jesus Christ gave me every word for my explanation! I praise our Lord for this experience.

If you are craving to hear God’s voice on this subject, then maybe it’s time to ask Him for a testimony of your own!

Here is a photo of the Book of Mormon that Brother Don was reading that day.
