On a warm sunny day, I was on the way to visit someone with another member. When we took the subway, we saw a person standing in front of us; he didn’t look like a Czech. Since he was also a foreigner like us, we felt some kind of interest in him and wanted to preach the Word to him.
However, since it was almost time for us to transfer to another train, we didn’t have enough time. Then to our surprise, he also got off the train at the same station and transferred to the same train as well. Since we had to get off the train after four stops, we only had about ten minutes left to preach to him. He was sitting next to us, and we started talking to him right away.
“Hello? We’re from Korea. Where are you from?”
“I’m from Brazil, and my name is Marco.”
“Have you ever heard about God the Mother?”
“God the Mother?”
About two minutes passed while we were introducing ourselves to each other in English. We thought that he would feel more comfortable speaking in English than Czech. Unlike our expectation, however, he was not good at speaking English. We started to explain to him about God the Mother, pointing to the Bible verses about Mother one by one. While we were preaching to him, a few minutes passed.
“We don’t have enough time to preach about God the Mother because we have to get off soon.”
“Um. . . .”
Another two minutes passed.
“This truth is so important. We really want to see you again to let you know more about God the Mother.”
Then he gave us his phone number. This was what happened in the noisy, crowded subway train within just a few minutes. Come to think of it, that would be impossible without the help of heavenly parents. It was not easy to meet him again. Our appointment to meet each other was postponed several times, and finally he visited Zion. We preached God’s word to him in a mixture of Czech and English and showed him the Bible written in Portuguese, the official language of Brazil. Despite our poor language ability, he understood the truth fully. When we explained to him,
“We were angels in heaven, but we are now living on this earth as a result of committing sin in heaven,”
he asked us what kind of sin we had committed. When we said, “We must return to heaven,” he asked us about what we should do to return. And when we explained to him about the Passover, he asked,
“Do you mean that God has given us the Passover to allow us to live in heaven forever?”
The only word we knew in the Portuguese Bible was the “Páscoa (Passover).” So we just kept emphasizing the word “Páscoa,” saying, “We must keep the Páscoa instead of Christmas. To establish the Páscoa for us, Jesus suffered on the cross 2,000 years ago. And in this age, the Spirit and the Bride give us life through the Páscoa.” Then we told him that he should be baptized in order to keep the Páscoa. However, he found it hard to understand the word “Křest” (the Czech word for baptism), probably because it was unfamiliar to him. At that moment, we found an edition of the Elohist magazine lying around on the desk. With some expectation, we opened the page for the “Let’s Learn Foreign Languages” section and we were very surprised to read the expression in Portuguese. The expression was as follows: “(You should be baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit).”
We felt that God was with us, just as He was when we first met Marco in the subway. That day, he became a child of God. In Prague, Czech, we’ve met a brother from Brazil. We realize again that our heavenly family members are everywhere and that our heavenly parents help us in any and all situations, so all we have to do is just find our brothers and sisters.
“Let’s find all our heavenly family members and save them.”
This is what Heavenly Mother said to us before we left for Czech. We really want to do so. Believing that God always helps us, we will find all of our heavenly brothers and sisters and lead them into the arms of Heavenly Mother, whenever we are.
