Hey Family!!! This week was awesome! We got 6 new investigators!!:) Le Mars is gettin somewhere!! Ah its awesome to see the difference since when I first got here 7 months ago till now!!!!:) But one of the investigators names is J. He is this older guy who owns his farm out in the middle of nowhere. His wife died of a stroke and he needs a lot of help around his farm. So we went up there and helped around the farm. It was so cool. We were able to teach him the Restoration and give him a BOM and he says he will most definetely come to church next week!!! He was real interested in it!!:) We are so excited!! Another new investigator was a referral given to us from one of our potential investigators. They lived over in the trailer park. She just had back surgery so we helped clean everything and then were able to share a message. She has a 10 year old boy named B. His Dad is a NFL player on the NY giants team! But He never sees his Dad....he just sends him money every year. Its sad. B didn't know anything about Jesus so we were able to teach him about Jesus and God. It was really cool. He really wants to come to church with us. His mom said he could and she wanted to come when her back heals! 2 other new investigators are named N and L. We went over to the lock up and were seein T and A when they both asked if they could come in and listen. We told them of course and ended up teachin them the plan of salvation with this visual aid that Ali Peterson gave me!!! (Tell Ali thank you SOO much!!) They both started cryin!!! and sayin that that feels so right. It was SUCH a powerful lesson. But then we always have powerful lessons at the lock up. Heavenly Father really loves them and wants them taken care of. We gave them BOM's and they gave us their numbers so we can go back and teach them more. They wont ever be able to get baptized cuz they can't leave the lock up.....but it is bringing them so much peace in that horrible horrible place they are in. The feeling in the lock up is so scary and awful......but I know that we are supposed to be there bringin them peace and comfort and love from their Heavenly Father.
