Season 7 Episode 6

Hello Friends and Family,

I just found out who my new companion is going to be. His name is Elder Kershaw. I have no Idea who he is. So I am excited to meet him and see how we work together!

Monday: Went to Wabasha which is about an hour away. The National Eagle Center is there. It is amazing, they have lots of eagles and I got to see one eat a fish. We learned about them and it was a great P Day. I will send some pictures!

Tuesday: We did service at Annedee's Closet. Then we had dinner with Bro Miller, Bro Edwards, and Bro Sellnar at Arby's. Then I mowed a lawn for an investigator. It was crazy, it was starting to get dark so I was like running haha.

Wednesday: We had Zone Conference in Oakdale. It was great! I enjoyed being uplifted and motivated to do missionary work. It was right next to the temple so that was cool to see that again :) Other than that not much happened that night..

Thursday: We did service at connecting connections and then we stopped by our investigator Aki so Elder Lowe could say goodbye. Then we had a lesson with John Johnson about Repentance. Dinner at the kennedy's and we had amazing Fajitas. Then we had a lesson with Bro Edwards and we listened to the talk "The Only True and Living Church" By Elder Oaks.

Friday: We had weekly planning and as we were just pondering and thinking about what we could do to find more people to teach, we get a call from Connecting Connections and she said that someone we helped move in to their house was looking for a church that is family oriented and our church fits perfectly for that! So we got her number and called her and she said she was going to come to church this past Sunday, but she didn't. She also said she wants to meet with us. So that was a huge miracle. We were pumped about that! Then we were invited to go to the temple that night because a recent convert was taking her endowments out and we got permission to go. So that was amazing! It is always amazing to go to the temple and feel the spirit there :)

Saturday: We helped out a sister that is moving and getting a divorce. She was very unorganized so that was hard to pack.. Hahah!  Then we went to another Sisters house and helped her in her yard. It was pouring super hard one minute, then the next it wasn't. That happened quite a bit! Haha! Then we had dinner with the Midtoven's and that was fun. They are hilarious. Then gave a blessing to Bro Edwards because he got sick..

Sunday: We had an awesome church service. Not a lot of people were there but it was awesome. We taught Gospel Principles. We taught on Baptism and that was good! :) After church the Dunlap's had us over and they asked for some help moving things out of their garage. We had dinner over there and we were able to share a spiritual message. I hope that we can soon be able to start teaching them!

The area is pretty slow.. But we are going to pick it up and find some people to teach. I am grateful for elder Lowe's service and example. I hope you will see him on TV this fall playing ball at the Y. :) Thanks for the emails everyone! Love you all!

Love, Elder Anderson
