(Sent August 1, 2016)
This week I learned a lot about miracles. Our mission president sent us a certain talk given by Elder Neil L. Andersen to mission presidents about developing the faith to baptize converts.
Our new mission president is EXTREMELY focused on making sure that the people that we do baptize are truly converted to such a point that they will continue strong in the Church after their baptism.
In that talk, it explains a whole lot about miracles - how to receive them, why they are necessary, and everything. God is a God of miracles. There are verses in every single book of scripture that show and prove that. And God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, meaning that miracles have not, do not, and will not ever cease.

And we, as members of His true church, have the chance to see miracles every single day. Not only do we have the chance, but we SHOULD and NEED to see miracles every day. If we haven't seen a miracle pass in a day, either you weren't looking or you need to do something more for somebody else.
I promise you all that if you work to find miracles and make miracles, you will see them every single day without fail. I promise you all because I am a witness of that promise. I saw a miracle every day this week. Whether big or small, God's hand was there because God is always with those who want him there. And those who want him there show it.
Have a great week every body! Work hard and look for miracles. And you will find them and become a happier person and a better disciple of Christ in the process.
