Alrighty folks, listen up because this girl has some tales to tell…
It all began a little over two weeks ago, I had found three bumbs on my neck and a few on my wrists. Then the whole heard came and i was covered in these bumbs! After a many days of cold showers, cortizone cream and benidryl my comp starting having the same reaction. We had been checked and had many different diagnosis from members and doctors telling us what they thought is was. Let me tell you, from the begining I knew and I told them what I thought it was but NO ONE believed me! But yes ladies and gentleman, I was right, It was bed bugs…. and scabbies. You can not imagine what this did to some of the members… “Aaaaaahhh FREAK OUT!” But through all of this time and many many unusual and trying things I have seen so many miracles.
Miracle 1) Two Sundays ago we were at church and staying behind after sacrament and were talking with people and one lady Sister Bohnie had stayed behind also and had overheard us talking about the bumbs on our skin. She saw them and told us exactly what it was and said she knew exactly how to treat it. Since then she has been by sides night and day helping us with everything!
Miracle 2) Except for the first day, which bumps went away fairly quickly, Neither my comp or I had any bumps under our garments.
Miracle 3) My comp and I both received priesthood blessings and right after noticed quick results of healing on our skin.
Miracle 4) My comp had lost our car keys and we searched everywhere inside for them and they could not be found. She wasnt feeling well so while I looked outide -did I mention in a storm- she was praying inside and calling for help. It had snowed six inches and I searched for a good 30 minutes by myself until helped had showed up. 5 minutes after help had come a boy knelt down to tie his shoe and BAM there was the keys!
Miracle 5) I am alive and I have new beautiful baby niece Elizabeth Decker!!
Honestly, these were only partial of the miracles that have taken place these past few weeks (I have more written in my journal but that is currently being frozen to kill the bugs along with many other thigns). I have felt God’s help and guidance everyday. I know he has a purpose for everything he has given us in this life. It is up to us to determine how we see things and act on things.
Last week, my comp and I knocked on a house we didn’t know and a Mexican lady answered and she kept telling us she was Catholic and already had a religion but we were a bit persistent and entered into her house to say a quick prayer with her and her family. My comp who knows Spanish better than I asked what blessings they needed and what they wanted to ask of from the Lord. She said a few things and especially to bless her sister because she had lost a baby recently. In the prayer my comp spoke of the plan of salvation a little and by the end the lady who would not at first let us in, was in tears. She told us we could come back whenever we wanted! I know that God had prepared her for us to come and softened her heart and guided my comp what to say in that prayer. He has prepared many for us and we are ready to light this side of the mountain (Craig Colorado) on fire with the work! Come and get us Satan, bring it on! We are ready to work and serve! Nothing will stop His work from progressing and especially not from us! Work, work, work!
