Today’s Miracle Monday is a camp-related testimony from Sister Natalie Pezzenti.
Just after I graduated high school in 2003, I decided to attend campout in Saginaw, Michigan. As a recently baptized member, I was excited to meet new brothers and sisters from across the country and draw closer to God during my week away from home.
When I arrived at camp, I was quickly put to work. Brother Chris G. asked me to take notes throughout the week to post on the camp website for all those who weren’t in attendance.
On Tuesday evening, the 16 to 17-year-old seminar class was asked to testify. As each young adult approached the microphone, I wrote down their names, not knowing many of them personally. Before one young man, Daniel S., shared his testimony, I wrote down “Brother” in front of his name. His love for the Lord was evident and his thankfulness was great. The miracle lied in the fact that Daniel had not yet asked for his baptism — but would later that week. This occurrence, though seemingly small, was a strong confirmation to me of Daniel’s calling.
We know that “by small means, the Lord can bring about great things” (1 Nephi 16:29) and this small act was a reminder to me that God was among us that night.
Visions for July
Next month’s Miracle Monday theme is visions. If you or someone you know had a vision that you’d like to share, please send it to TCOJCblog@gmail.com. We’d love to hear how God has spoken to you in this way.
