Monday, April 28th

Well its only been 5 days since I was last on here, and it only seems like 2! haha Its been pretty cool to see what the Lord has given us in the last 4 days. The big thing we have been fasting and praying for are new investigators! And we have 4 new investigators! Some are more solid than others but for time constraints today, I will share the coolest one.

So last Wednesday, during our (moved) p-day, Mom, you sent me stories of how you had fasted and prayed in different areas on your mission with your companions and how it always brought miracles. At this point we hadn't received any new investigators even though we had fasted 4 days prior and were working really hard. And it wasn't that my faith was dwindling, but hearing those experiences from you really helped me see the Lords hand was still here and that the people were being prepared. No later than that night as we felt like we needed to be at youth night at the church, for a possible potential that would be there, then did we find 2 very prepared new investigators. We were about to leave after talking with some members and we stopped into cub scouts and Sister Myere was talking to 2 of the Moms of the scouts who are non members about the temple and she saw us and was like, "OH ELDERS! Come on in and meet these 2, we are talking about temples. You should explain it!" It was so cool! They were genuinely interested and listened as we taught that through temples we can be sealed to our families for eternity. We then transitioned to the Restoration and taught it all to them and gave them both a Book of Mormon and one of them said she was just teaching her son about Easter and how after Christ was resurrected that he went to others to visit them. And she said, "that was those people here in the Book of Mormon!" She calls her son over and explains it to him. And she says that she will read the Book of Mormon and pray about it! We are going to be meeting with them next Wednesday! I know the Lord prepared them for us!

We did a big service project on Saturday and then had stake conference that evening. We had dinner before that with the McInnis's too.

yesterday we had the morning session and it was really great! It was very spirit filled!

We went on splits with an awesome member yesterday as well! I really like him. He is a convert that was too old to serve a mission but wanted to so badly. So he was so fun to go out teaching with!

Well sadly I don't have anymore time today but I hope you all know that our heavenly father truly hears and answers our prayers when we show him our faith and work our hardest!

I love you all,

-Elder Swalberg
