A Wonderful Week of Surprises in Bloomington with Elder Oldroyd

Hello Family and Friends,

   This week was a good one. We have been very blessed this week! On Monday we went to the Anoka Zone P day and played kickball which was fun. On Tuesday we had some good lessons with our investigators. We taught a kid named buddy he is our 17 year old investigator who is progressing a lot just since I have been here. We taught Timothy and Steve our other two investigators who are a little odd, but they are doing well.

   On Wednesday we drove for a super long time driving missionaries around. We dropped off Elder Johnston in Buffalo and picked up our new companion Elder Bullock. Elder Bullock is from McCammon Idaho and it has been fun having 2 companions. We now have 6 missionaries in the ward. Because now the sisters have a 3rd companion as well.

   Friday we did the mission wide finding hour and it went well. We went tracting for an hour and talked to a lot of good people it was a good time for all the missionaries and we saw lots of miracles again. On Friday we went to the twins game in the evening. Our investigator Tom Walters is a season ticket holder front row in target field and really wanted us to go and check it out, so we went to the game and it as super cool. They were playing the Detroit Tigers and Justin Verlander was on the mound, so that was cool to see him play. We had amazing seats!! Oh I forgot something to tell you, earlier that day we met up with my former Duluth investigator Ken. She was in the cities so Elder Johnston in Buffalo and me in Bloomington met her at the Maple Grove Zupas. She told us she is planning on being Baptized. What an amazing miracle. She told us that the spirit has told her many many times that being baptized is what she needs to do. I seriously am so happy for her and the decision she has made. The baptism will be sometime in May and that will be a very neat experience.

Sunday we had mission presidents fireside which was really great. The Minnesota Mormon Chorale was there and it was a really powerful event with 300 people in attendance. We had our investigator Buddy there and he really liked it!

I had a great week and I am really enjoying serving here in Bloomington. It is crazy to think that transfers is coming up so quickly. They are next week... wow! Hope everything is well for you!
