This month, we're focusing on Miracle Mondays that have to do with food. Today's story is submitted by Sister KarenJo Pandone. It's actually an experience of her father's, which she took directly from his journal.

Rose, Karen & I left the house for Muncey in my Plymouth. Leonard Lovalvo, David Majoris, Ken Staley & Joe Cotellesse followed in Leonard’s car. Today was our annual dinner at the Mission. Bro Sam & Sis Theresa Palermo were supplying the dinner. Sunday School was jammed with approximately 100 adults & kids. After Sunday School we began preparing for the dinner. Used the apartment to cook & set up the food, had an awful time with the plugs – we kept blowing fuses. Dinner was rigatonis, ham & roast beef. Didn’t look like we were going to have enough food, the Palermo’s had brought 12 lbs of cooked pasta. It was almost done and there were still quite a few to feed. Sis Maness looked at the few remaining rigatonis & told Sis Theresa Palermo they were about to run out. Sis Maness than began to stir the macaroni and as she did the miracle of the 5 loaves and 2 fishes reoccurred. The pan was suddenly filled to the brim. What a beautiful experience of God’s love for the poor among men! The whole afternoon was a complete delight. Young and old, Lamanite and Gentile, all eating, socializing and working together. There was a lot of music with Ken Staley playing the piano and all our girls singing.
