November 6, 2016

I know that the priesthood is real! And all the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ have been restored using that very same power. We have seen miracles every day! This last Monday we had a large baskeball tournament with a lot of missionaries. One of the missionaries had a random seizure in the middle of the basketball court. I have never seen anything like it, it was a pretty scary moment and nobody had any idea what to do. He hadn't been breathing for quite along time and so someone said "give him a blessing." My companion, Elder Parau was right by his head, and so while he was still having a seizure my companion gave him a short but powerful blessing and as he closed in the name of Jesus Christ the missionary relaxed and started to breath again and he stayed stable until the paramedics came and took him to the hospital. This was really a wake up call for me because at any moment we could be called upon to excercise the Priesthood authority of God. We later went to the hospital to help get the missionary released but while we were in the waiting room we met a member named Sister Saros. (I have no idea how to spell that) her 3 year old son was bitten by a masquito and his body had an unknown reaction and doctors couldnt figure out what was happening to him. And she asked if we could give her boy a blessing if she was able to get into a short stay room. But after a while of waiting we got permission for myself and a new missionary from Utah to go back and see the missionary. We met the Elder and he asked if he could get another blessing. During his blessing it said that he was in the hospital for a reason but we don't know now but that we would find out why in the future. Right after giving him a blessing we went and found Sister Saros and her son in a short stay room. Her son just started to shake and the doctors still couldn't figure out what was happening and so we just drew the curtain and this brand new missionary, Elder Tripp gave his first blessing of healing. A very stressful moment but he payed close attention to the promptings of the spirit and the greatest sense of peace came over all three of us! It was yet another miracle with the priesthood. Everything worked out just perfectly for this 3 year old to get a blessing. Gods timing is perfect! And sister Saros's non-member parents live in our area so she asked if we could stop by and teach them. So we stopped by on Tuesday and we knocked on the parents door, Sister Saros was randomly visiting and so Sister Saros was actually the one that let us in the house and we had a very good experience and both the parents invited us back! so God works in very mysterious ways! But when we trust in him everything works out. We always need to be ready to follow the promptings of the spirit! This experience has really motivated me to improve and to continue to draw closer to God! I'm grateful that he allowed me to stand as a witness of these miracles. 
     Miracles like these happened every day this week but I do not have enough time to email them all! I love you all so much have an amazing week 

Love Elder Wiser
