6 years ago I was still going to Haiti with my evangelical Protestant church even though I had been Catholic for a couple of years. I had a few interesting conversations with my mission team mates regarding my return to the Catholic faith. For many of them, they had never heard of such a thing ever happening. On our day-off we went to the beach in Jacmel and one of the members of my former church came up to me and said; "Russ, she's drawing me." I asked him what he meant, and he said that he was being drawn to the Catholic faith. I really was surprised to hear that and we chatted a little about issues of conversion and he again surprised me by saying, "I don't believe in sola scriptura because it doesn't make sense!" I was further taken aback by that and wondered "why isn't this guy Catholic?" On the flight home I gave him Dr. Thomas Howard's book, Lead Kindly Light.
He was the former editor of Christianity Today and Elizabeth Elliot's brother and converted to Catholicism
a long time ago.
Once we arrived back in the states, my friend handed me the book and said, "I finished it on the plane."
We said our goodbyes and I have prayed for him from time to time. We haven't kept in touch and he moved away but I notice his facebook page a few weeks ago. It said " ____changed his religion to Catholic." I look forward to hearing his story and if he allows I may share it here.
