The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.

“I remember how nice everyone was to me on my first visit to The Church, and I was surprised because they didn’t even know me. Everyone was greeting me. I was very shy, but it felt wonderful; it did not make me feel uncomfortable. I did not quite know what I was experiencing or what I was feeling.” – Sister Wendy Giannetti, Mesa, Arizona
It’s not easy to walk into a room full of people you don’t know. Perhaps you came on the arm of your boyfriend, as Sister Wendy did. Or maybe it was your girlfriend, like Brother Bob Batson. Either way, dozens of people greeting you and asking who you are and where you’re from? Not the typical way we like to spend our Sunday mornings or Wednesday nights.
Today's Miracle Monday is a testimony from Brother Rich Nath about a time when he was at a career crossroad, and God showed him what to do through His word. Enjoy!
By early 2007, I had been working shifts for over six years. Although my mind loved working the night shift, my body was starting to get weak. I worked a four-on, four-off schedule, and when on nights, it was taking me two of my four off days to recover. I asked my managerial team if there were going to be any future openings in the department that didn’t require shift work. The answer was there were no current or foreseeable plans for any.
