"Do You Have a Dinner Appointment?... Alright, We'll Feed You!"

Hello Everyone!

This week was miraculous! Interviews with our Mission President went really well. President Baker is a wonderful man. On Thursday, we had a lesson with a less-active member that we had been trying to meet with ever since I got here. And we also had a lesson with a member and his wife who's not a member. Both were great!

On Friday, we were out teaching with a member and as we drove past the library, we saw one of our investigators standing outside it. So we stopped and shared a message with him! We hadn't seen him in a while. And then he came to church this week!
There were 3 times this week that members offered to feed us on the spot! On Sunday we didn't think we had any meals, but then we ended up with a lunch and a dinner appointment!
At 7:30 on Saturday night, we got a call and my companion was asked to speak in church. Not much notice, but he did great!

I've been reading the beginning of The Book of Mormon recently. I love Nephi's words! He teaches the importance of prayer in 1 Nephi 18:3. It reads, "And I, Nephi, did go into the mount oft, and I did pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things." This was as Nephi was building a boat. When we have to do difficult things or go through many afflictions, we must turn to the Lord. Not only will He provide a way for us to accomplish great things, He will provide peace. I know He is there. And He yearns to hear from us. His love for each of us, His children, is great. May we love Him as He loves us.

I love you all! Have a fantastic week!!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
