The Miracles of Missionary Work (Well, Just Five of Them)



by Bradly Baird (bio)

I walked away from the Provo Missionary Training Center on June 30th and felt a deep sense of loss, because this day was my last as an MTC service missionary. During my nearly eighteen months of service, I taught some eight thousand missionaries who are now preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in missions all over the world. My service included about five hundred hours working with companionships on their gospel teaching skills and instructing large groups (usually three hundred or more) on how to work with church members. During these many hours, I personally witnessed miracles numbering in the hundreds; and, while I cannot describe them individually, I will share five miracles that settled into my mind on the day I closed the MTC security gate for the last time.

1 - When you set your life aside in service to the Master, the blessings of Heaven rain down in abundance.

2 - Heavenly Father loves His children deeply and we can feel that love any time.

3 - The Holy Ghost profoundly conveys truth.

4 - Heavenly Father answers the prayers of His children.

5 - The Atonement of Jesus Christ is real, tangible, and available to all mankind.

What more can I say?
