A.J.’s Miracle — A Musical

AJs Miracle logo in colorSmallby Mark Ogden

A Missionary story you will never forget!

A.J.’s Miracle is meant to show the human side of missionaries. The show is based on the true incidents of the author as he served his mission. The story begins with a bet: $1000 that AJ cannot fulfill an LDS Mission. The story follows his reluctant progress as he is sent to serve in Mexico. It is said that a mission is the best kept secret in the Church. Unless you go you have no idea what it is really like. The many missions in their varied locations in the world are each totally different. Just as different are the missionaries who serve. The underlying theme of AJ’s Miracle is this: “The Lord can take what most people perceive as the worst and make out of it, the best.”

(Performable by LDS Wards, Stakes, Educational, Professional and Community Groups)
