The Incredible Story Behind This Photo of President Nelson and What It Teaches Us About Faith

Church members John Rey and Mara Bautista were visiting the BYU Jerusalem Center for President Nelson's global ministry tour when their 7-year-old daughter, Ella, said something about his visit they will never forget. 

Times here have been tough for the family. Mara hasn’t worked since Ella was born. Her legal status—as well as Ella’s—in the country is uncertain.

But today they are not worried about that. They talk of the opportunity to hear President Russell M. Nelson speak as part of his world ministry tour.

As Ella runs over to her parents, she also makes a declaration about the prophet’s visit.
