How Faith & Keeping the Sabbath Holy Led to This Amazing Weekly Miracle


MR says: Check out this small but amazing story of how keeping the Sabbath holy brought a host of unexpected, weekly miracles to Saints in 1946.

In 1946, the presidency of the Wells Stake in Salt Lake City helped establish a tannery to tan hides and produce fine leather for the Church’s welfare program. Lowell G. Fox, who had studied the process of tanning leather, was called by Elder Harold B. Lee, then a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, to work under the direction of the stake presidency, Fred W. Schwendiman, Nicholas J. Teerlink, and Clarence E. Schank. Brother Fox wrote about what he called a miracle:

“We have experienced many blessings at our welfare tannery. Let me tell you of a miracle which happens there every weekend. It was brought to our attention the day following our first holiday.
