“I am definitely grateful and humbled by this miracle,” said Petrungaro. “A quote (from Elder Jeffrey R. Holland in the April 2012 general conference) comes to mind: ‘Surely the thing God enjoys most about being God is the thrill of being merciful, especially to those who don’t expect it and often feel they don’t deserve it.’ My miracles are not only beautiful and inspiring to me, but they fill me with a great responsibility to be the best missionary I can be and to serve the Lord with faith and cheerfulness.”
