A week ago Thursday, my dad and Casey administered a priesthood blessing to Ma'Kayla. The mood that night at the hospital was so very sad as each of us could feel Ma'Kayla slipping from this world. Ma'Kayla had been unresponsive and the doctors had said that although she needed a liver transplant that she wouldn't survive one. After the priesthood blessing was given and the power of heaven was drawn down, Ma'Kayla started to improve. Day after day, they would see small improvements and more shock from the doctors as test results started coming back better and better. A week and a half later, beyond any best expectations the doctors could have hoped for, little Ma'Kayla is at home and resting. She still has a way to go to get back to her 5 year old spunky little self, but she is well on her way.
I know that the Lord can and does perform miracles today. Ma'Kayla is living proof of that. I am not sure what Ma'Kayla's mission is here on this earth, but Hayden is right, she must have an important work to do, since the Lord stepped in and allowed her to live.
I am so grateful for the power that priesthood blessings bring to those receiving them. I know that thru priesthood blessings that miracles can and do occur on the earth today. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for allowing Ma'Kayla, and our entire family, to experience one of his miracles. I know this entire experience has strengthened my testimony in the Savior and His power to perform miracles. I hope Ma'Kayla will always know that her Heavenly Father and Savior love her and she uses this experience to ground her own faith and testimony in them.
