Listed below are two examples of the power of faith . . . starts with hope and action, includes testing, and results in confirmation of our extended faith.
Seminary from Iraq This is story of an Army Capt stationed in Iraq that takes on the challenge to teach early morning seminary - virtually to his two teenage sons in the states. Takes hope/action? Was there testing? His confirmation sounds pretty priceless.
I was also impressed by young McKay Hatch's story of encouraging his friends to "don't cuss". McKay's story was highlighted in the March 2009 New Era Magazine.
