Two of our Elders were telling us about a Preisthood blessing they gave the baby daughter of an investigator Wednesday night. She was born at only 23 weeks of gestation! She weighs just over a pound and the Elders said she would have fit in the palm of their hands. They said that the woman's doctors were trying to convince her to have her baby taken off life support. "But," they said, "That is not what the blessing said!" The Elders were inspired to bless this baby that she would live and be an instrument in bringing her mother closer to The Lord.
I am thankful for faithful Elders who bear the Priesthood of God and are worthy to give such blessings.
