As I promised I am sending you information on the December 7th Incident and the Miracle of all Miracles.

Exhibit A is a copy of the various stories the Church has on file in Salt Lake City. They maintain records on inspirational stories and even "rumors" that come to light. Exhibit B just surfaced last year in Arizona and varies just a little from the earlier version. An Elder Abe Ekins and his wife claim they met the pilot while they were serving as missionaries in Japan in 1985. They are searching through their dairies to find his name. I know Abe personally and telephone call to him revealed he is not too certain about names, places and facts.
