The Difference One Can Make
How much difference can one young man make when his life suddenly ends at only nineteen years of age? Kent Williams had an impact of unmeasurable proportion on the lives of friends, teachers, family, and all who knew him. He exemplified positive peer pressure. His zest for life, "super dates," and excellence in school and sports was combined with an unusually strong desire to learn and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. His friends loved him, and so did their parents, because of the influence for good he radiated.Larry Johnson taught seminary and dynamically shares Kent's story. Kent accepted a mission call to Argentina, and Brother Johnson felt he had never known any young man with more promise that Kent. Three weeks into his mission, a train accident claimed Kent's life and stunned all who knew him. After his death, his mother shared the journals Kent faithfully kept. Kent's accounts of his amazing insights and spiritual journeys reveal him as one of God's truly valiant spirits. An intriguing story for young and old alike that will captivate your mind and touch your hearts.

I listened to this talk in seminary and it touched me so much. That the Next sunday that week and I used it in my family home evening plan. And I still listen to it.

I was the last member of our family to see Kent, I picked him up in LA along with his companions and drove them to a consulate to pick up their visas and then back to the airport. I am eternally grateful for that last time with him. This is an amazing story, sometimes a little off the mark as told from his and my seminary teacher, yet very accurate and true. Kent's story has changed the lives of thousands and our family continues to get messages from those whose lives he has changed. He continue to serve the Savior as a missionary here and on the other side. Even if the CD is a bit dated it's well worth listening to and if you ever get a chance to hear larry speak in person I'd jump at the chance.
My only complaint is that the CD cover image is not Kent's some marketing person must have thought this was a better image but I find it a little misleading as I'm sure some will see this and think it it Kent.
