It seems I have always known that the gospel is true. I have taken it for granted just the same as the fact that my mother and my father is my father, never doubting. However this testimony has progressed with the years and become a part of me. I could proclaim it to the whole world. Also I know God hears and answers prayers and if we draw near to him, he draws near to us. It is thru prayer that I have received special favors – that is they are very special to me. So much so that they are sacred and I cannot talk about them to everybody. But to my sisters of the Relief Society I will relate one perhaps the most outstanding. Eleven years ago our youngest son, Calvin contracted scarlet fever. He was 4 years old at the time. He was very sick and the third day his ear started aching. We had sent the rest of the family away and I gave my entire time to caring for him. Through the efforts of the doctor and administrations of the Priesthood his ear was better until 3 weeks later when we had another spell of ear ache and the ear drum ruptured. Again he was better for about 2 weeks. In spite of everything mastoiditis developed and an operation was necessary. We took him to the hospital, it was very serious and we prayed with all our might. The Priesthood was called in, even the doctors assisting in the administration. He got along fine apparently and the next morning, Dr. Merrill said he didn’t have a case in hundred as serious as this. One side of his face was paralyzed and so badly swollen and I was so worn out in spite of my husband’s encouragement. I was greatly depressed. I was allowed to stay at the hospital and a cot was brought into his room (We had a private room.) for my convenience. The 4th night he was restless and seemed so ill. I just couldn’t stand it any longer. I fainted or collapsed into my cot. He and I were alone and when I became conscious again everything seemed black and gloomy. My faith was gone and my hope for my little boy’s life. But I prayed earnestly. I said, “Father Thy will be done, I will tell the children it is alright. Aunt Lu is over there and so he won’t be too lonesome.” Instantly the darkness lifted, my soul was flooded with light and a voice, a spiritual voice, said “Calvin is alright. Calvin is going to get well.” He was better the next morning and we soon brought him home. And for a week he seemed to be improving except for the excess drainage which increased steadily. A week past, then the doctor estimated it was draining at the rate of a cup of pus per day. Then one evening, he was bolstered up in bed. I saw a little rivulet of blood start down his neck from the wound. My husband went for Dr. I remembered the voice. I prayed as I have never prayed before. Ten or 15 minutes later when the Dr. arrived we were both pretty well saturated with blood but it had stopped. [Underlined text in original copy is not completely decipherable.] Dr. estimated…. The doc was excited and said he had never heard of such a thing. The following week was one of deep anxiety. The pus had eaten off the … and Dr. M. was waiting for Dr. …..to return from study in the east. During the next 4 days there were 6 more hemorrhages and he was getting pretty weak Saturday night ….we took Calvin back to the hospital. Sunday morning. Again they operated and we started on the way back. It took …. He was out of school 5 months and it was 3 ½ years before it was healed over but he ….. and grew well and … Proof is the part he played on the Springville Basketball team. He is 20 now and enlisted in the Army Reserve. And we know that God hears and answers prayers and always keeps his promises. By Eva Clark Johnson

Life timeline of Calvin Clark Johnson

Calvin Clark Johnson was born on 1 Oct 1922
Calvin Clark Johnson was 17 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
