9/29/14 Elder Peterson - A Week Full of Miracles!

Well, this past week was full of miracles! Lots of them! To start off, Elder Wilcox and I were able to go and visit BJ and G on Wednesday. It was such a great lesson! For those of you who don't know who they are, we knocked on their door a couple of weeks ago and they invited us in. And now we are teaching them! And we were able to bring a member of our ard with us and guess what his name is? It is Sean Peterson. He spells it wrong but that's okay. He is still a cool guy.
 
Also, we met with T a couple of times, but he wasn't able to come to church. Please keep him in your prayers! He needs to keep coming to church or else he can't get baptized! He is doing great though.
 
A couple of other cool miracles. So Elder Wilcox and I were walking down the road on Friday and we started talking to this girl named Lauren. She had some questions about the church and so we asked her if she has time to sit down and we could answer her questions for her. She said yes! So we went to a nearby bench thingy and started talking to her. We were able to teach her about the Restoration and the Book of Mormon and she agreed to meet with us again on Wednesday. We are pretty stoked! It was definitely a cool miracle!

Also, this weekend our ward went on a retreat to Pennsylvania. We almost got permission to go with them but President said no. Just kidding, we didn't even ask him because we knew that he would say no anyway. It would've been fun though. Since the ward was on the retreat, they had sacrament meeting at the retreat and so we went to the ward that meets at a different time in our same building. T was supposed to come on the metro to church. We left a little bit before the end of sacrament, because he hadn't shown up yet, to see if he was coming. On our way we talked to a guy that was going to work at a nearby grocery store and he had a few minutes to come to church with us for a little bit! It was neat. He lives a ways away so we passed off his information to a couple of other missionaries.
 
Alright, two more miracles. So while we were at church, one of the members of the ward we were attending came to us and said that there was a guy out in the foyer who had a Book of Mormon in his hand and was wanting to learn more. We were like, "WHHHHAAATTT??" That doesn't happen often, now does it? We were able to talk with him and teach him the first lesson and invite him to conference, and set up to go and visit him on Thursday. Yeah it was cool. The last miracle was that the sister missionaries that are in our ward told us about one of their former investigators named L who they got in contact with and was interested in meeting again. They thought it would be better for us to meet with him and so we met with him last night. He is a great guy. We taught him the restoration and asked him if he wanted to be baptized and he said yes! So he is going to be baptized on November 9th. So exciting!

Well, that's about it from me! I am stoked for General Conference! And I hope that you all enjoy it too!
 
Love,
Elder Peterson
