Sister Reyna I. Aburto was just 9 years old when a horrific earthquake changed her life.
It was December 23, 1972, and a 6.3 magnitude earthquake had just rocked Nicaragua to its core, destroying homes and killing thousands—including Sister Aburto's brother.
"I remember thinking, 'Where is he? Will I see him again?'" Sister Aburto recalls in the Church video "Reyna Aburto’s Story—Part 1: Heartbreak and Hope."
Not yet a member of the Church, the answers to these questions came in profound daydreams she had about her deceased brother.
"I would see him come to our door, knock on our door," she recalls in the video. "And then I would go and open the door and he would be standing right there. And he would tell me, 'Guess what? I'm not really dead. I'm alive. I'm just somewhere else. I was not allowed to come but now I can come to you. I will stay with you and I will never leave again.'"
Watch the video below to see how these daydreams helped strength Sister Aburto's testimony of the gospel.
