  6. “The Appearing was the first series of public meetings held in Seeley Lake, Montana by Seventh-day Adventists. One couple attended every night and was very enthusiastic. After the meeting the man asked us if we knew Mel Anderson. I mentioned that I knew him. The guest proceeded to tell us that he was hiking one day and met Mel on top of a mountain. They talked and found they both shared a strong faith in Jesus. They shared concerns for loved ones and prayed together. As they were departing, our guest asked for his new friend’s name, and he replied that he was Mel Anderson and that he was a Seventh-day Adventist. The guest then told us that he never would have been interested in coming to an Adventist meeting before, but now that he had met a true Seventh-day Adventist Christian, he was glad to come. “So let your light shine before men . . .” — Tom Glatts, Pastor, Kalispell Adventist Church
