Hello Everyone!

This week was great! We saw some amazing miracles this week, but I'm going to save those for the end. On New Year's Eve, my companion and I went to the Mt. Olive pickle drop. At 7 PM they dropped a 3-foot, glowing pickle into a big bucket. (One they use to make pickles I think...) They did it at 7 so everyone can go home and get to bed on time, which was nice for us missionaries since we can't stay up late anyway!

We had a great Zone meeting on Friday. A Bishop from one of the wards came and spoke for a little while, so that was nice. We're going to read through Preach My Gospel as a mission as well, so that's been great!

Alright, now for the miracles. On Monday night, our Elder's Quorum President was scheduled to come out teaching with us. Our appointment for that night had canceled a day or two before, so we were going to just try to stop in on a few people with him. The first person we tried, we ended up having an amazing lesson and our Elder's Quorum President was just excited about it the whole way home. Then Tuesday came and a Brother had signed up to come out to a lesson with us. Around 4 or 5 our appointment for the night canceled. So we called a bunch of people and couldn't find anyone to go visit. Before I knew it, we were driving to our home so the Brother could take us out. I was unsure of where we would go, but after praying I felt peace and knew that it would work out. The first place we tried was an investigator's home and they let us right in. We had a wonderful lesson! The same thing happened on Wednesday! We had a member signed up to come out teaching with us, and our scheduled appointment canceled. The first person we tried let us in and we had a great lesson! Our God truly is a God of miracles! "But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are." (Mormon 9:11) I know that God lives. He loves. And He will truly perform miracles in our life according to our faith.
Have a wonderful week and look for the little miracles in your life!

With Love,
Elder Rogers
