A Week of Miracles in the Mission with Elder Oldroyd

Hello Everyone,

  This week was a good one full of many miracles. On Tuesday we had a eally cool experience. We had dinner with the Stone's and we had our recent convert Jennifer over for dinner as well. After dinner we had a new member discussion with the entire family and Jennifer. The Stone's the night before studied Preach My Gospel and specifically all the points in the Restoration lesson and it was so cool that they all taught the 1st lesson to her. Elder Oldroyd and I added our testimonies to it, but it was so cool to see these members so engaged in teaching these new member discussions to Jennifer. 

  A miracle we saw on Wednesday night was we went to teach a man named timothy and with a member named Shawn. Previously we had gone over to his house and he had been super wasted and just been drinking  all day
so we weren't really able to teach him that well. We went over this time and he was completely sober, we were able to teach him the Restoration lesson and the spirit was so strong, this man had a sincere desire to learn more and we were able to teach him about prophets and how important it is in our lives that we follow prophets.
 This past Friday we had another cool experience. As a mission we had an hour of finding together. So we had a short spiritual thought and prayer on a conference call before and it was really cool to have everyone in the entire mission out knocking on doors, contacting people on the streets, and just teaching people. It was a really cool experience and we were able to find 53 new investigators in one hour all around Minnesota. We also shared the video 121 times! Anyway, it was just a cool thing we did as a mission this week.

   On Saturday we went to the Minneapolis Zone service and helped set up an Easter egg hunt. It was really fun, then that same evening we went with the Anoka Zone and did a downtown Minneapolis blitz where everyone went and shared the video as well as copies of the Book of Mormon.

Thanks for everything! Have a wonderful week!
