Finding Christ Amid the Chaos

Dear brothers, sisters, and friends,

Life has sure changed in the past month. The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in quarantine and isolation to slow the spread of the disease and protect the most vulnerable. As a result, The Church has had to suspend all in-person meetings. Thankfully, though, we've been able to use technology to communicate with one another and even hold remote church services.

On Sunday, March 29, 2020, Brother Joel Gehly addressed the church via Livestream, and he shared a message of courage and trust in Almighty God. He also related several experiences to encourage us and confirm that God is speaking to His people in this time of widespread fear.

Here are the experiences he shared:

My Miracle Day

Written by Sister Connie Rossi on Monday, 30 March 2020. Posted in Miracles Hits 209

My Miracle Day

Today's Miracle Monday is a story of God's miraculous protection submitted by Sister Connie Rossi from the Charlotte Branch.

December 6, 2010 is a day that will forever be my Miracle Day. Ten days earlier, I was going through some file folders and placing them in hanging files when one of the hanging file ends stabbed my right pointer fingernail. It hurt but I thought nothing of it and figured it would get better over time. Over the next several days, I forgot about it since there were no after-effects and I assumed it healed. However, I could not have been more wrong, and December 6, 2010 changed my life forever.

At 4 a.m. that chilly day in December, I woke up to throbbing pain in my right pointer finger. It was still dark outside, so I couldn’t really see what was going on with it. I tried to reach over to turn on the lamp on my nightstand, but I quickly realized I had absolutely no energy in my body to even turn over. I had never felt so weak in my entire life. Being an early riser, Brother Darrell was already out of bed, so I couldn’t ask him to turn on the light. I tried to call out for him, but I couldn’t get a sound out of me either. I suddenly felt cold as ice, as if I was standing outside in zero-degree weather with no coat on. No energy, freezing, excruciating pain, and burning up with a fever at the same time — what is going on with me?

I lay there for several hours not being able to move when finally at 6:30 a.m., Brother Darrell came into the room to check on me since I was usually up by then. He called out to me, and when I didn’t answer he turned on the light. I pointed to my finger and, believe me, it was beet red and swollen to the size of a kielbasa. Panic struck and he asked me what happened, and I couldn’t answer him. He tried to get me out of bed to take me to the ER, but I couldn’t move a muscle, so he called an ambulance. The pain was so intense I was in and out of awareness.

Spared Twice

Spared Twice

Today's Miracle Monday contains two stories of God's divine protection on the road sent to us by Sister KarenJo Pandone.

About 15 years ago, my husband and I were traveling home from a dinner with friends. The roads were very slippery, and the snow was coming down heavily. I kept urging Michael to slow down due to the road conditions.

Suddenly, about 20 yards in front of us, we saw a car stopped in the middle of the road! Knowing that we couldn’t possibly stop in time or miss the car, I slid down in my seat and closed my eyes.

A few seconds later, I opened them wondering why I never felt an impact. We were past the car without incident! I asked Michael what had happened, and he replied that he didn’t know.

Saved by Lime Green Boots

Saved by Lime Green Boots

Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Brother Tim Scolaro, and he tells about a time when God spared him and his family from an auto accident.

One Sunday morning about 19 years ago, my wife and I, along with our three sons, started off for a trip in our van to hold a service down in Tucson, Arizona.

We had just left our home and needed to make a left turn out of our subdivision onto a busy road. As we got into the left-hand turn lane to await a green light behind a couple of other cars, I noticed someone on a motorcycle up ahead along the curb, and he was wearing bright lime green boots, which struck me as very strange. I thought the kids might like to see them, so I told them to look to the right as we moved forward.

Angels and an ATV

Angels and an ATV

Today's Miracle Monday is the first that answers our March theme question, "How did God protect you in or from an accident?" This story comes to us from Wesley Griffith from the Forest Hills Branch, Florida.

I have always loved riding my 4-wheeler (ATV). I would come home from school and want to drive through the trails in my wooded backyard. I know the trails well, and at the back of our property line, there is a barbed wire fence.

Two years ago, I was in the woods riding by myself. At the back of the property, there is a right turn, because if you went straight, you would run right into the barbed wire fence. Well, that's literally what happened. I knew I was supposed to turn right, but the thin barbed wire fence blended in with the woods behind it, so I couldn’t see it and kept going straight, thinking I would turn right a little further down.

The Power of the Lord was Present to Heal

Written by Sister Sherry Santilli Creighton on Tuesday, 25 February 2020. Posted in Miracles Hits 338

The Power of the Lord was Present to Heal

“…and the power of the Lord was present to heal them” – These were the words that Brother Jerry Valenti read from Luke 5 to introduce the subject of miracles as he addressed a group of people at my home on October 8, 2019. He said that this should be our prayer for the day – that the power of the Lord would be present in this home on this day to heal all who were in need such that we would witness miracles. He shared many miracles from his own life to illustrate that the power of God is still very much available to us today.

It was something of a miracle that this day even came about. I had been corresponding with Brother Jerry via email, requesting prayer for my granddaughter Gia who was born with a loss of hearing and other complications, and he graciously offered to visit my home to pray for her in person. Not wanting to keep this potential blessing to myself, I extended invitations to several of my friends and relatives to come to my home that day. We wound up with 25 people in attendance!

After my daughter Jackie and my granddaughter Gia were anointed, others came forward one by one to also be anointed. Some hankies were anointed as well to be brought to others in need. Now, approximately four months later, I’m blessed to be able to share these miracles from the people who were anointed that day:

A Son Is Given

A Son Is Given

Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Marie Kimmel. It happened on December 20, 1966.

I went to the hospital because I was in labor with my second child. Because of a previous pregnancy, I knew what to expect; however, this time something was terribly wrong.

During this time, prenatal care was nothing at all like women have today. My doctor never checked on me for several days. I was in labor for a long time with no food or water due to active last-stage of labor.

The nurses paid little attention to me, and I was alone in extreme pain. I became weaker and weaker until I felt as though I was about to die. This soon became a reality as my life force (or spirit) traveled from my body. I found myself in spirit high in the air above the bed where my pregnant body was. At this time, I felt no pain or fear — only sorrow that my baby would die without me alive to give birth.

An Important Dream in My Life

Written by Brother Russell Cadman on Monday, 16 December 2019. Posted in Miracles Hits 366

An Important Dream in My Life

Today's Miracle Monday first appeared in the December 1946 issue of The Gospel News. It's an experience of Brother Russell Cadman.

When I was about fifteen years of age, I had a dream in which I saw my father reciting from the Bible, or telling the meaning of the things that it contained. My mother sat in a chair in front of my father with a Bible in her lap, checking his interpretation and finding that he was right. Also, there were two men, who appeared to me as angels who kept nodding their heads that my father was right.

Desire to See Christ

Desire to See Christ

Today's Miracle Monday originally appeared in the December 1951 issue of The Gospel News. This experience happened during a Detroit Branch 1 Ladies' Circle class. Sister Mary Di Donato had the following vision:

On Monday night, we were having our Ladies' Circle meeting, and we were reading in the Bible about the resurrection of Christ, when Mary went to to the tomb and didn't find Him there.

I looked at the three sisters that were sitting at the head who are President, Vice President, and Teacher, and it seemed they all appeared to me as though their faces were all the same. Then I turned to all the other sisters, and they appeared, too, all as one face.

A Good Prescription

A Good Prescription

Today's Miracle Monday is the experience of Sister Julia Nicholas from the Muncey Indian Reserve, in Ontario, Canada, as recorded in the August 1952 issue of The Gospel News. It also appears in Vol. 1 of the church history book.

On the night of March 26,1940, I dreamed that a visitor came to see me when I was sick. He sat on a chair at the foot of my bed. When he began to talk, the first thing he said was, "I see you're very sick." I replied, "Yes."

There was a glass of water on the stand beside my bed. He asked, "Where do get that water?" I told him we got it just aways down. Then he said: "Well, I have water that is better than that."

The 2 A.M. Healing

Written by Sister Cummins on Monday, 04 November 2019. Posted in Miracles Hits 985

The 2 A.M. Healing

Today's Miracle Monday is a healing from way back in 1880. This is the story of Sister Cummins, who lived near Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania, as retold in the September 1951 issue of The Gospel News.

My son took sick with what the Dr. called Black Diphtheria. One night he got so bad, I had to prop him up in a rocking chair so he could breathe. I ran and called my husband and said go quick for Bro. Myers. Jimmie is choking to death.

This was two o'clock in the morning. He started for Bro. Myers who lived eight miles from Mt. Pleasant up in the mountains; and on his way he met Bro. Myers and Bro. Brown. Brother Myers had to pass Bro. Brown's home. He stopped and awoke him and said: Come on, we are wanted at the Cummins home.

How Wonderful to Be on God's Side

Today's Miracle Monday is from the pages of the March 1951 issue of The Gospel News, and it records the testimony of Sister Vicky Calabrese.

Bro. Editor: I'm writing today as I should have done long ago, to thank all the brothers and sisters that remembered me in their prayers, and sent me such beautiful and encouraging cards.

Three Days Before My Wedding

Written by Sister Leanna (Valenti) Rozzelle on Monday, 21 October 2019. Posted in Miracles Hits 685

Three Days Before My Wedding

For Miracle Monday, we're sharing an experience sent by Sister Leanna (Valenti) Rozzelle. Hold on tight; it's a thriller.

It was September 18, 2019 — just three days before my wedding. I set off for a quick trip to the grocery store. As I attempted to turn left into the store's parking lot, I was hit by an oncoming car. The next thing I knew, my windshield and windows were shattered, both airbags deployed, and I found myself in the passenger seat of my vehicle. When I saw the vehicle that hit me, my legs almost gave out from under me. It was a huge truck. I knew right away that God had protected me.

Itchy, Scratchy … Solved!

Itchy, Scratchy … Solved!

Today's Miracle Monday, which is from Sister Cassandra Mosqueda, originally appeared in the October 2019 issue of The Gospel News as a Blessing Bit.

My son, Benjamin, has always struggled with severely sensitive skin. I have tried just about every single lotion there is on the market, it seems, and nothing has helped. It causes him a great deal of pain, and, as a mother, one of the most challenging things is to have your child in pain and not be able to do anything to soothe it.

Pray Right NOW

Written by Sister Janet Oestreicher on Monday, 07 October 2019. Posted in Miracles Hits 731

Pray Right NOW

Today's Miracle Monday is an experience about prayer that happened many years ago, submitted by Sister Janet Oestreicher.

After I had prayed one morning, I was told by a voice to “get on my knees to pray.”

I kept saying to myself, “I already prayed, and I don’t know what else I have to say.”

The voice was becoming loud and persistent to get on my knees to pray. I did and started praying that God would protect His people.
