Hello Friends and Family,
We had a wonderful week this week. We taught some really solid lessons to some really prepared people. Also, what a Mother's Day being able to talk to the family. Tuesday we had exchanges with the Medicine Lake Elders (My old area). I went with Elder Larson who is a new Zone Leader and is from North Sanpete. He is a great guy and I really enjoyed the exchange we were able to get in with a part member family home here in Bloomington.
Thursday we went on exchanges with the Lakeville Zone Leaders and I went with Elder Kemberling. That was a good exchange, we were in Burnsville/Lakeville and we did finding for a long time which was really good. We talked to some nice people and not so nice people, but overall it was a good experience. I served in Lakeville over a year ago, so it was good to be back and see parts of my old area. That night we got a call from the Cottage Grove Sisters telling us that they had contacted the most prepared person they had met on their mission and that he lives in Bloomington. So they gave us his number and address and told us to call him the next day.
Friday called him and he totally wanted to meet up. He told us that he was maybe not going to be able to make it to the lesson we set up for 7:30. He texted us and told us he would hustle back and be able to
make it to the church by 8:30. So we met him at the church and 8:30 and we was super nice and we went directly into the chapel and taught a really powerful restoration lesson. What a spiritual experience for him! As he learned about Joseph Smith these are the words he said "That makes sense. The Book of Mormon is something I am very curious about now." This man is an answer to many prayers! He is one of the elect that are prepared to hear and accept the gospel.
Saturday we taught our investigator Solo Hne (From Liberia). He is so ready for the gospel as well, we taught the restoration and you could physically see the spirit teaching him. It was a great experience!
Sunday Solo came to church and stayed for all 3 hours. He really enjoyed it and hopefully will come next week with our other investigator Peter who is his roommate and they are both solid investigators. We had our family of investigators come to church James and angie and there kids. We also had our investigator Steve come, so we had 7 investigators to church and it was a really great sunday because after that we face timed our families.
The work is moving forward here in Bloomington, we are seeing lots of miracles and really enjoying our time together!
Here is some big news: President Russell M Nelson will be holding a mission conference this Saturday for our mission. We will each be able to shake his hand, this is something I will never forget! I am so excited to hear his words to our mission. What a great opportunity! I love you all! Have a great week.
