I want to start off by sharing one of the coolest miracles of my mission.

We gave a brief explanation of the Book of Mormon as she continued to sob quietly. We handed her the book and a Plan of Salvation Pamphlet. She accepted a return appointment for two Sundays from now and said that she was going to read for sure. We left with no doubt in our minds that she was going to go read it immediately. We have such a good feeling about her! We went back the Sandstrom's house afterwards to tell them about our experience with Debbie. The members are the best way to find because they know way more people than we do! That was one of the most spiritual experiences of my mission. I know that the spirit was guiding us the whole way and we were simply instruments in Gods hand to bring comfort to her in a time of need.
Our other investigators are doing well, but not much to update you about. We did a lot of door knocking this week because we really need to find more people to teach. We found several cool people including the one with a crazy sign on her door (see attached picture). Elder Raban came on exchange with me to our area this week. It was fun to catch up a bit and talk about the good ole' days. It will be sad to see him and others in his group leave next week. We also went to the temple with a returning member on Saturday and we had a mission leadership meeting on Friday. This upcoming Sunday we will be part of a panel to answer questions at a stake mission prep fireside. I will update you next week!
