Cool Story I heard a few weeks ago in the MTC - I'm off to JAPAN

Three men passed away and went to heaven. When the first man got to the gates of the kingdom he was greeted by a very nice looking man. The man asked him simply, "What do you know about Jesus Christ." The man paused for a moment, and then responded, "I know he was a great man, he cares and taught great things but was killed by the jews because they didn't believe him." The man smiled and showed him through a door next to gates.
A few minutes later the second man came to the gates of Heaven and was greeted by the same nice looking man. The man asked the same question he asked the previous man, "What do you know about Jesus Christ?" After a long pause the man responded with," He was the only begotten of the Father and man's only perfect example, he died for the sins of the world because he loved man kind and was incredibly selfless." The nice looking man smiled and showed him through another door next to the gates of Heaven.
After a few minutes the third man found his way to the gates. The nice looking man walked up to him with the intent to ask the same question he had the previous two. Before he could ever ask the man looked him in the eye and said, "Master." How well do you know Jesus Christ? It's my testimony that he lives! He died for us and knows of our trials and our pains. He is the Savior and redeemer of the world.
I can't wait to get into the mission field, pray for me. I will need your prayers, letters, emails and support. I have the greatest family & friends in the world supporting me.

Kobe Japan here I come in less than 2 days!
Love you all,
Elder Jeffrey Maxwell Giles

Elder Donaldson and Me.  So lucky to have such a great MTC companion! Solid in the gospel and his testimony of Jesus Christ, he will be a great missionary in Japan.
