MILAGROS passen de vez en cuando.....
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers! They were heard all the way out here in Spain. Tamara de Equador finally told us she is ready to take the step of baptism in her life. Antonio a Spaniard from Andulucia told us he will also be taking that step this Sunday. After 4 months of teaching the both of them we are THRILLED and grateful to witness such miracles together as we come to an end of this companionship here in 2 weeks. We have worked soooo hard! I´ve honestly never worked harder with any other companion. Miracles happen. "Jesus the Christ," the big 800 thick book describes miracles as a phenomenon not susceptible of explanation, far less of demonstration, by what we consider the ordinary operation of natural law. Christ worked many miracles that both the bible and the BOM testify of. Many people were there, they witnessed these signs of Gods power, these signs that God the Father and His Son are real. That Christ came to us, healed the sick, the broken hearted, raised others from the dead, etc. In this field, science has not yet advanced far enough to explain miracles. Science says to deny the actuality of miracles because we cannot comprehend the means implies that what man cannot comprehend cannot be, and that therefore he is able to comprehend all that is. We all know we as humans cannot comprehend everything. Science says that what happened in the Bible were actual events that took place. So miracles do happen. Miracles are a sign of Gods power. As missionaries we are to report to our President each week one miracle. Well we don´t see a miracle each week. We see miracles daily. No matter how small or big. How do we get the opportunity to see miracles each day? We prepare ourselves by first being obedient, second daily prayers, third reading the scriptures, teaching so that others can feel the power of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, serving others, talking to everyone, keeping ourselves morally clean, WORKING, baptizing worthy converts and their families! We SEEK miracles, key word SEEK, then God does the rest.
To comprehend the works of Christ, one must know Him as the Son of God; to the man who has not yet learned to know, to the honest soul who would inquire after the Lord, the invitation is always there; let him "come and see." READ, see after His word to know for yourself the power and MIRACLES wrought by Christ. The testimonies in the Bible and Book of Mormon are real. They are real people who witnessed these miracles. All we are to do is to have faith enough to apply the teachings taught. It is happiness that one cannot understand until they try it and appy it in their own lives. If you have not read the Bible and Book of Mormon, start today and see the power of Christ work miracles in your life. I give my testimony because I have seen the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ change my life and work miracles. Christ lives, the atonement, His Sacrifice for our sins, griefs, sorrows and pains is real. For those who don´t comprehend it the invitation to "come and see" for yourself is always available. Though the world may change drastically God and His ways don´t. I love the power of the Book of Mormon and Bible combined. What greater power there is behind more than one witness that Jesus is the Christ.
I love you all and hope you are seeing the blessings and miracles of Jesus Christ work daily in your life.
