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.
For our lost-and-found theme, we're republishing a Miracle Monday from Jan. 25, 2016 by Sister Linda Scolaro.
It was Christmas Eve, and my husband and I were busy dividing and conquering, running errands, doing last-minute grocery shopping and spending a lot of time cooking for our Christmas dinner.
First, my husband misplaced his wedding band and college ring. He calmly said, “It will turn up.” At the end of the evening, I emptied my pockets, and my wedding band was gone as well. I slept uneasily, but I resolved that I would look for the ring after all of our Christmas festivities were over.
Did you know that 14 years ago Brother Richard Christman made a trip to Quito, Ecuador, and we now have a mission of eight members? That’s how news of the Restored Gospel spreads.
Recently, Brothers Ken Lombardo and Noah Comacho traveled to Quito to do the usual “missionary things” that you would expect to hear about. They held services, met with various people interested in hearing about the Gospel, anointed the sick, blessed two babies, counseled someone who asked for baptism, bought a microwave for the mission and a computer so the saints can have meetings via Skype.
