Felipe Garcia thanks the Virgin of Guadalupe because he didn’t lose his arm when he tried to save his chicken from a crocodile that was going to eat it. He’s very grateful for this favor.

There was an epidemic in the village that infected the animals. With all my faith, I entrusted myself to the Virgin of Guadalupe so that she would save my animals. They were saved, didn’t got infected and stayed in good health. They are all I have, and I thank you. May you be blessed, Virgin.

A horrible devil possessed my sweet and beloved animals and set them against me. When I saw them coming to attack me I took out the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe and the shinning of her image scared the devil. My animals recovered their mind, and I give thanks for the miracle.

We went to the town to sell our animals. On our way a big eagle appeared to us. It wanted to eat our animals. So we asked the Virgin of San Juan for protection and for her intervention right away. The Virgin made us this favor. She scared the bird away, and then we arrived to the town and sold the animals on the market. And on our way back home we didn’t meet the eagle either.

My hens laid big and delicious eggs, but even still my farm had a hard competition with others. I prayed to the Virgin of Guadalupe, and then one of my hens laid the biggest egg I’ve ever seen. It made my farm famous. Now people visit me to look at the egg and to buy my production.
