When the challenge is massive, the best solution can be a simple one. God likes to take a few to reach the many. He uses the simple to accomplish the miracle. Whether it’s a few loaves of bread and a few fish to feed thousands, marching around Jericho seven times before hollering, or sending home tens of thousands from Gideon’s army for a few hundred faithful men, God works best when the odds are stacked up against him.
Charlotte was raised in the Mormons church and was a devoted follower. She was married in the Manti temple in Utah, but her husband left the church over an incident with an LDS bishop. Wanting to stay loyal to her husband, she also left the church and continued to fervently pray that if the Mormon Church was true, God would lead her back some day.

Your offer to exhibit the love of Christ through prayer can provide opportunities to share the love of Christ through the message of the gospel.
It was in God’s Word where I saw my depravity and knew I deserved to be ground to dust on judgment day and cast into the lake of fire forever. I then understood the awesomeness of our God to stoop down from his throne and die for me. …I still belong to the Mormon Church and attend its services even though I no longer believe in its teachings and have become a Christian. The people at the Mormon Church do not know that I don’t believe in it anymore. Some are aware that I know the Scriptures (Bible) decent but I don’t believe they know my true feelings.
