Hey family!

This past week was again great. One of the highlights was with our investigator Brendon. These past few weeks we have been teaching him about the gospel and asking him if his family would be interested in hearing what we have to say. He told us “i would love that, but it would take some sort of miracle to get them home, for they are very busy.” And luckily on friday when we were teaching they were just showing up to the house as we were

preparing to leave. What held us back was an interesting question. “Elders… What can you tell me about your purpose as missionaries? I want to serve a mission so i want to know.” Imagine that! not even a member and already wants to be a missionary! We told him what Preach my gospel says on page one “Your purpose is to invite other to come unto christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in jesus christ and his atonement, Repentance, baptism, receiving the holy ghost and enduring to the end” After that his parents walked into the house and started asking us about the gospel and asking us if he could do what we do! So you could say this week we had some sort of miracle happen to us haha. It was very powerful being able to tell an investigator that he can and will serve a mission.

Also im glad to hear that you contacted elder michelsons family. thank you for doing that. Im sure his mother was happy to see another family with their son in the same mission.

Well thats about it for this week. I love you guys and i pray for you every day!!

Elder Payne
