They Are in My Hands
Today's missionary-themed Miracle Monday is an account from Brother Richard Scaglione about a trip to South America. Enjoy!
Brother Frank P. and I made a missionary trip to Colombia and Venezuela from June 3 to 15, 2010. The blessing actually began the week before we left.
On Saturday, May 29, Sister Rose P. had a dream in which she saw the late Apostle Frank Calabrese laying hands on Brother Frank and me. He asked God to be with us on the upcoming trip.
The next day during the testimony meeting in Lorain, Ohio, Sister Rose testified that when God sends His servants out on missionary work, He takes care of them. She stated, “God will take care of my husband and Brother Richard as they are going to Venezuela.” At this time, the Word of the Lord was given: “They are in My hands, saith the Lord. I will go before you, my servants. I will take care of them and bring them back as I have said before. Continue, continue to do your work and your duties and I will bless you.”
God did protect us. There had been instances in Valle de Guanape of men in a small white car stopping along the highway after dark in front of various homes. One of the nearby homes had been recently robbed. Sister Alicia Bicelis had noticed this car and alerted her neighbors. She also reported it to the police.
One evening, we were sitting on the veranda and noticed a small white car with men inside. It had its parking lights on and had stopped outside the fence. We started to talk loudly to make them think there were more people in the house. After several minutes, the car left. The next day, we learned that the police had caught four men in that same car. They had guns.
God was there to protect us.
