Empty Buckets

Empty Buckets

Today is the first of our miscellaneous Miracle Mondays — the theme-less month. We're going to hear experiences of all types. (If you haven't sent yours, now's the time!) Today's submission is a beautiful story by Sister Megan Garcia.

It's maple season in Northeast Ohio! Last year was our family's first year collecting this liquid treat from our maple trees. It was a Thursday when relatives came over to tap our trees and explain our duties. "Check the buckets at least once a day," I was told." You might even need to do it twice a day so the buckets don't overflow."

To say we were excited is an understatement.

Embarrassed to Wash Feet

Embarrassed to Wash Feet

Today is our last feetwashing-related Miracle Monday! Enjoy this miracle story submitted by Brother Chris Gehly.

I have an incredible passion for the work of God in Africa. Don't ask me to explain why I love going to a place where the food is bland, the bugs are gigantic, and the living conditions are third world. I think we all know and understand that when God calls and you heed, you are incredibly blessed.

Shortly after I graduated college, I was invited to travel to Africa with a dear friend, mentor and father figure, Bro Lyle. He told me we would be going for 35 days. I jumped at the opportunity. We made the first missionary trip into Mozambique, slept in tents, and experienced the culture in ways that cannot be done on a typical trip. It will always remain as one of the greatest experiences of my life.

Reflections on Feetwashing

Reflections on Feetwashing

This week, we're bringing you two feet washing miracles. Please enjoy these testimonies from Sister Carmela Gray and Brother Jerry Valenti.

One Sunday, as we sat for feet washing, my sister was washing my feet and praying. (I pray in my mind sometimes.) I was feeling unworthy and opened my eyes. As I did so, I saw that the water in the basin was not clean. I was overwhelmed with the Spirit and closed my eyes, and we were both weeping.

The Wonderful Watermelon Miracle

The Wonderful Watermelon Miracle

During the first spring after we moved here to the Houston area, I began to meet my neighbors as I walked my dogs down our semi-country roads.

One of the first neighbors I met was a woman named Esmeralda who lived a few houses down from me. She was outside with her granddaughter enjoying the pleasant walk to her mailbox. I stopped and introduced myself, and we talked, laughed, and cried together, sharing the blessings of God and of our families. At that time, she was about to undergo chemotherapy, which eventually took her appetite and the ability to keep food down — even water.

Healed During Feetwashing

Healed During Feetwashing

Today's feetwashing-related Miracle Monday was sent to us by Sister Ruth Gehly. Enjoy!

A few years ago, my husband Joel and I visited the Perry Mission in Ohio on a day when we would be sharing the ordinance of feet washing.

During our travel time, my thoughts were drawn to a particular evangelist from Perry whose preaching had impacted me as a new convert but who was called home unexpectedly at a young age. I thought about his widow, someone I had always admired, and I was filled with a desire to wash her feet. I also wanted to be open to however the Lord would direct us during our gathering.

Sins in Bins

Sins in Bins

You just never know what gospel jewel you're going to take away from an MBA meeting. A month or so ago, I walked away from a midweek service with this gem. It's an experience by Brother Al DeCaro from the San Diego California Branch, which was recorded at October conference in 1972.

It seemed as though I was in our San Diego Branch and all the brothers and sisters were standing in a single file, one behind the other in the middle aisle and Brother Tom Liberto, who is our presiding elder, was standing in front of the sacrament table. Along the back wall of the rostrum were five or six metal containers measuring in size about 3 or 4 feet square.

Washing His Feet

Washing His Feet

Today we're kicking off our March Miracle Mondays, which are all about feet washing. Today's experience is from Sister Betty D'Orazio.

Washing feet is my favorite ordinance. One day while praying and talking to the
Lord, I said, "if only I could have the privilege to wash Your feet as Your disciples
did that day."

A Double Blessing

A Double Blessing

Today's Miracle Monday is the testimony of Sister Erin Light. This is the last of our baptism-related Miracle Mondays. If you haven't sent your feetwashing-related testimony yet, please get that to us ASAP.

I was 13 years old when God called me at a youth retreat in California. We telephoned my grandpa, Brother Russell Martorana, to tell him the good news that his first grandchild would be baptized, and we wanted him to be present. In true form, instead of immediately saying, "Yes, I will be there!" he told us over the phone that he would pray about it, and the Lord would tell him what to do.

Does God Love Me?

Does God Love Me?

Today, Sister Karen Watford shares a baptism-related experience that God gave her to show His matchless love and care.

After my baptism, I waited for a lovely experience like I had heard from so many of the older brothers and sisters. None was forthcoming. I waited for changes to come into my life like I had heard from others. None were forthcoming.

I was told that perhaps because I had led a good and godly life before my baptism, I didn't need those lovely experiences. Nonetheless, I began to despair that God didn't love me and cried many tears. One night in my prayer I asked God to give me a dream to show me if He loved me. I promised Him that if He would show me, I would never ask for another dream.

A Crown Just for Me

A Crown Just for Me

For today's baptism-themed Miracle Monday, please enjoy the testimony of Sister Brianne Gehly.

May 2007 was a beautiful month spiritually for me. At May Conference, I was very moved by the message, which was the story of Abraham and Isaac (Genesis 22). "Love the Lord and He will do wonderful things for you. He will bless you if you work for Him. Love others as He has loved you" are a few notes I had written down from the Sunday meeting.

Miracles at the Water's Edge

We're rounding out the week with more experiences courtesy of the IMOC. Yesterday, we asked you to pinpoint the common thread shared by all three experiences. It was that all were immediate, on-the-spot healings. Today, we're not going to make you guess the common theme. It's baptism. Here are two powerful baptism experiences — share yours for Miracle Monday next month!

More Missionary Miracles

Yesterday, we shared several experiences from the IMOC, and we've got more for you today. God is truly working with our brothers and sisters outside of the U.S. Yesterday, we asked you to find the common thread in all three experiences. It was that each one involved the rebuking of an evil spirit. Today's experiences have a common thread, too. Can you see it?
