Mission Inspiration . . .

Wanted to share some mini miracles . . .

Yes, they do still occur almost daily.

In the life of a missionary it's incredible some of the mini miracles that come to pass as they are out there meeting, teaching and helping others to come to know our Savior Jesus Christ.

 Here's a few experiences we've gathered up this week.

 . . . we planned an activity with two different branches in our area.  The day of the activity was pretty stressful, we planned a movie night in the park and had coordinated to get a big projector screen. We arranged with the mayors office to get everything set up.  But the day of the activity everything seemed to be going wrong, it started raining, the power was out from 2-5 pm, the DVD broke, the power went off again . . . so we all said a silent prayer.  The lights came back on, we found a new DVD, the rain went away - and it was a great activity.  Everything just resolved itself and we got like 25 new references from the activity . . .

. . . We went to visit a family that is always home, because she is older and doesn't get out much.  Well this day, she wasn't home and it was pouring rain.  One of her neighbors allowed us to stand under her door step.  We talked with her and she invite us in, where we share the message of the Plan of Salvation with her, her mom and her daughter.  Turns out she has a son who passed away and this lesson was exactly what she needed to hear  It was a very peaceful lesson.  The Lord works things out so we end up teaching those who need the message most in their lives, we are just his servants . . .


 . . . we had an experience where we were able to help one of our investigators receive a blessing and a greater testimony of the church.  At the end of our lesson we asked if there was a special blessing we could include in our closing prayer.  She said yes and told us about her son who lives in the States whom she hasn't seen for a long time.  We said a prayer and it turns out a short time later she received a call from her son.  She knew it was a blessing from God and he answered her prayer.  She came to church for the first time on Sunday and says she loves it and feels the spirit . . .

  . . . one of our investigators set for baptism didn't have their personal records of their wedding or even remember when it was.  We helped them by going to the city to look for their records but they couldn't find them anywhere.  We were in a time crunch as they had committed to be baptized that day and didn't want to wait until the next month.  The city gave us the number of a different office to call so we ran back to our house to call.  The office began to look and said they would call us back.  We were so worried they wouldn't be able to find the records in time . . . we fell to the floor in prayer and my companion said one of the most fervent prayers I have ever heard, just asking that they would find the records in time for the baptism, saying "Heavenly Father, we need your help".  Just then the phone rang.  And they found it.  We know God answers prayers, sometimes we wait a long time, other times he can answer our prayers within seconds . . .

Yep . . .

Just mini miracles going on almost every day of the week.

We believe . . .

Yes, we do.

 . . .  for it is by faith that MIRACLES are wrought; and it is by faith that angels appear and minister unto men  . . .
