Kasey the Kinderbot

Written by Brother Jerry Valenti on Tuesday, 19 May 2015. Posted in Miracles Hits 1478

Kasey the Kinderbot

My daughter Maria has a best friend — her toy robot Kasey the Kinderbot. Many a night in our house is filled with Kasey's beeps and boops and the sound of Maria singing along with Kasey.

I should point out that Maria is autistic and also mentally challenged, so even though she is now a teenager, she is very much like a child, and she still enjoys many of the same toys she's had since she was a small child, many of which — like Kasey — are no longer even sold in stores.

In the summer, Maria's favorite thing to do is to go in our swimming pool. She loves it so much that we have to remember to keep the back door locked or else she'll run outside and jump in the pool, clothes and all. One day last summer, we forgot to lock the door, and when I saw the door standing open, I knew where I would find Maria.

Miracles at the Communion Table

Miracles at the Communion Table

Today, we've got two communion-themed Miracle Mondays for you!

Submitted by Sister Teri-Lyn Tunno on behalf of her branch

Brother Paul Palmieri: I have been a minister since 1967 and have passed communion many times, but on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, I was blessed with a wonderful experience during communion.

Brother John Mark D'Antonio and I were at the communion table enjoying the Spirit of God and feeling His presence. We were talking about the precious blood of Christ, and I went to pick up the crucible of wine. As I went to lift it up, my hand fell back down. I ... could ... not ... lift ... it ... up.

Well Pleased

Today's Miracle Monday is used by permission of the True Stories Publication Committee, and it's the experience of Brother Darrell Rossi. We actually don't have any more communion-related Miracle Mondays to publish for the rest of the month, so if you have one, please send it in ASAP!

His Blood Never Runs Short

His Blood Never Runs Short

Today, we're kicking off our Miracle Monday theme for May: communion. Thank you, Sister Carolyn Griffith for sharing this most beautiful testimony!

Our branch, Forest Hills, Florida, was in the process of constructing a new church building. We were meeting in a rented facility, and our space for storing sacrament supplies was very limited.

One particular Sunday, as I was preparing the wine and bread for communion, I realized we didn't have very much wine and felt concerned there would not be enough. I felt if I could fill two full glasses of wine, there probably would be enough for the service. I was able to pour one glass full but the second glass only half.

One Small Miracle After Another

One Small Miracle After Another

Today's blog was submitted by Brother George Katsaras for the April Miracle Monday theme, and it goes really well with the experiences we shared yesterday. After you read it, we've got a question to ask you at the end.

My life is one small miracle after another. So many times throughout the day, I need to call on the Lord to help me, from finding my keys to getting a parking spot. When I pull into a crowded parking lot, I ask God, and almost immediately someone pulls out right in front of me. This might not be important to others, but when walking is difficult, finding a parking spot near my destination is major!

Everyday Miracles That Matter

Everyday Miracles That Matter

Today is our last day of miscellaneous Miracle Mondays, and we're sharing two experiences from Sister Teresa Pandone.

Experience 1

I wear eyeglasses, and sometimes I remove them, hook them on my blouse, and continue with my task.

One day, as I was doing yard work, I did this and continued bending over and picking up weeds and raking the grass in the yard. After some time, I noticed my glasses were not where I placed them. I searched all over and could not find them. I became quite anxious because I need them to read and drive.

As the anxiety accelerated, I began to pray and ask God to please help me locate them. I continued to search the yard again, praying all the while.

Suddenly, I had the thought to look into the barrel where I was placing all of the weeds and trash from the yard. I removed everything that I had put into that barrel, and at the bottom, I found my glasses. I began to thank and praise God for His message to me. God is so good, even in my everyday problems.

He Is Already There

He Is Already There

Today's Miracle Monday is from Sister Enza Pusillo. We hope it touches your heart.

As a young woman, just barely 30, I was told that I had a condition called endometriosis. This condition makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to conceive and sometimes carry children to term. Many women require extensive treatment and even surgery in order to do so. They said the older I got, the more difficult it would become.

Now, you have to imagine what news like this meant to me at the time. I was not married — not close to getting married at that point in my life — yet the one thing I had dreamed of and desired more than anything was to be a mother and have children. I had more than my share of fears and questions. So, I put my trust in God.

Blind Encounters

Blind Encounters

Today's Miracle Monday is from Sister Marty Jumper.

This is a testimony that tells how a little thing in my life was important to the Lord.

It was just before Christmas, and I was cleaning my house in preparation for family coming to stay with me for a holiday visit. There were so many things to get done, and I only had that day off to finish everything.

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

Written by Sister Karen Watford on Wednesday, 11 March 2015. Posted in Miracles Hits 1253

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."
