Miracles happen all around us everyday.  The sun rises, a friend smiles, a baby's born.  We are all surrounded by miracles, its just up to us to see them in that way!   Just yesterday I saw a miracle.  I was back in Vacaville, and knocked on a family's door who I knew from before.  She opened the door and let us in.

The miracle was simple, it was just her answering the door.  Which led to us talking for about an hour and now her and her daughters want to all be baptized!  Miracles do happen! This family is a miracle!

"Behold I say unto you, Nay; for it is by faith that miracles are wrought; and it is by faith that angels appear and minister unto men; wherefore, if these things have ceased wo be unto the children of men, for it is because of unbelief, and all is vain."

We just got to be looking for miracles, and have the faith that they will happen!


  1. Elder Bankhead, this was the theme of our Visiting Teaching Conference yesterday. The Errand of Visiting Teaching Angels will bring about miracles! So cool that you chose that theme for your blog today. Hope you are well and loving your mission! Sister Weinzinger in Vacaville 3rd ward.

  2. It makes me think of what Elder Harper taught us, "The pessimist says, 'I'll believe it when I see it; the optimist says, 'I'll see it when I believe it.'"

  3. That is awesome!! Ah, I love Vacaville. I'm so happy for that family to have that desire! Miracles DO happen everyday!
