Miracles in My Life - J. N. Loughborough

her house and present

her house and present some of the things we were teaching at the tent. So we hung our charts beside her bed and gave her a synopsis of our meetings, returning once a week throughout the month of May. On May 26, Father Ferguson was to be baptized in Santa Rosa Creek, about 200 feet from their door. Both of the sons were there with their families. The invalid daughter-in-law said, "I, too, want to be baptized. The Lord who has heard my prayers and forgiven my sins will give me strength to be baptized."

As we raised her from the water she shouted, "Glory!" her face radiant with the light of heaven. She then walked to the wagon and got in without assistance. She made her own change of clothing at her house, declared herself free from illness and prepared dinner for the company. 176

As I rode to my appointment early Sabbath morning, I passed a man going to Santa Rosa with a load of wood. He shouted, "Elder, you are going to have trouble today! Old Mr. Morton will not let you in the schoolhouse. I am going with my load of wood but will stop and see how it all comes out." When I arrived at ten o'clock, I tied my horse behind the building and walked in. Only the women were inside. The men were all out in the street talking 177
