Week 69 - Elder Sandstrom

Hello, sorry it's been a bit since I've done a group email. Things have been pretty crazy. So, as you probably could tell, it's already transfers again. It's going so fast. We got the transfer roster this morning and we found out the news. Elder McLean is leaving to go to Tremonton. I will be getting Elder Sandstrom, I know him pretty well so I'm excited.

We have seen a lot of miracles in the past few weeks. A girl that we have been visiting for the past transfer finally decided that she was going to get baptized. So they will probably do that around Thanksgiving. We are excited for her, she has already had all of the lessons and could be baptized at any time, but she wants her older brothers to be home from college when she does. On Saturday, right before we went home, we ran into a man from Jamaica who was out for an evening walk. We got to talking and it turns out that he came to Utah 3 months ago and that he didn't know why he was here. He said he wanted to get closer to God and he walked by the LDS church often and had seen the visitors welcome sign and had wanted to come for a while but felt like he needed to have his first time be at a "conference" of some sort and not a regular church meeting. We were happy to inform him that the Utah North Regional Conference was being held on Sunday and invited him to come. He said he would love to, but he had scheduled an important meeting at that time. We were disappointed but he agreed to meet later on in the day, after the conference. So we showed up to conference on Sunday to sit with our other investigators and afterwards, as we were helping pick up chairs, Andrew (the man we met) walked up to us in a super nice suit and totally surprised us. He told us he had felt like he needed to cancel his appointment and come to the conference. Then the Stake President showed up and introduced himself and we ended up teaching the restoration in the High Council Room. He knows it's true and committed to be baptized on the 12th of November. We are super excited!

Anyway, that is just one of many miracles that have happened. I just want you all to know that I have a testimony of the restored gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ. I invite all of you to share your testimony with others often, I promise you will see it work wonders in the lives of those around you. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support!

Love you all!
