One day the captain of our company came to me and said, "Sister you cannot carry that child another day, you will have to stop here with him for he will never live" . . . I could not think of doing that, so I knelt in humble prayer and asked God to make my baby well. We went to bed that night and when morning came my baby was much better and I was able to go on again. In a short time he was well. I thank my Heavenly Father for that and other blessings I have received. And never have I neglected to say my prayers since then.
