|This is how the brothers reunite!|
Just a few days after his arrival home he spoke in Sacrament Meeting. I felt that if I had been on earth to see the Red Sea part, it was no less a miracle than what I witnessed that day. The tears for his mother began just by seeing his name on the program. After all those years of not being able to say a single word in church, let alone speak in Sacrament meeting. He bore a powerful testimony of the love of God and our Savior. He shared mission stories, the message of the gospel, and then he ended by sharing his personal struggles and how he decided to go on a mission and how God changed him and helped him do the work. There weren't many dry eyes in that meeting. He is a great example to many people about how turning your life over to the Lord can do miraculous things.
We had a lunch afterwards and he spoke to lots of family members that he hadn't been able to before. He also had visits from former mission companions and friends. It was such a great day! Welcome Home, Elder Cannon!
