2 Accounts of Modern Apostles Healing the Blind


MR says: Our modern-day prophets and apostles have performed miraculous works for people around the world, but their greatest contribution to the lives of those they meet are their strong testimonies of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Elder Cowley

When Elder Matthew Cowley was a mission president among the Maori people of New Zealand, he had the following experience one Sunday when a father brought a nine-month-old baby forward to him, requesting that he be given a name and a blessing:

“I said, ‘All right, what’s the name?’ So he told me the name, and I was just going to start when he said, ‘By the way, give him his vision when you give him a name. He was born blind.’ It shocked me, but then I said to myself, why not? Christ said to his disciples when he left them, ‘Greater things than I have done shall you do.’
