How an 8-Year-Old Brought His Father Back into the Church

Baptism is not the last step to conversion. In the case of one bishop, it was just his first step in what became a very long, rocky, and interesting road to finally accepting the Church.

During a priesthood executive committee meeting, our full-time missionaries reported meeting a member whose records were not in the ward. I recognized the name immediately and mentioned that she and I had been in the same ward many years ago.

One of the missionaries said, “Yes, bishop, she mentioned that and seemed quite surprised that you were the bishop.”

I asked them, “What did she say?”

They said she looked very surprised and said, “He’s the bishop?”
