A Miracle Find in Plano!

September 8, 2014

This week was great! This week we found a miracle! We were knocking doors in an apartment complex and a 16 year old boy came walking down the hall way with scriptures in his hand. He asked if we were missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He said he moved to the complex just recently and had been meeting with the Plano 4th ward elders. (They were trying to schedule a time for us to have a hand off lesson and introduce us to each other) We then asked "Are you N.?" and he said yes and we introduced ourselves. He said, "I just finished the book of 2 Nephi and I'm going to start the next one." He said that he is working towards baptism and would like to meet with us on Saturday and come to church! He told us that he was praying that he would be able to get in contact with the missionaries again and then he saw us walking through his apartment complex! So we are going to be teaching him! And most likely we will set a baptismal date in our next lesson!

We went on exchange with the 4th ward elders. I worked with Elder Myers in the 4th ward. It was a good exchange! I was really hoping we would be able to find a new investigator in their area and the Lord saw fit to bless us with someone to teach. Tuesday evening we went to an apartment complex and began going door to door. A man answered and invited us in. He and a friend of his were reading in the bible and we had a great first lesson! I hope and pray that he will keep his return appointment.

T. and her daughters came to the last 2 hours of church on Sunday! They really enjoyed being there. We were unable to meet with their family last week but we will be meeting with them sometime this week! 

Also Bishop H. held a pot luck and asked us to invite our investigator H. to come. He really enjoyed being able to be there and many members of the ward reached out and introduced themselves and got to know him better. It sounded like H. was really enjoying it! We will be meeting with H. again this week and are excited to be able to teach him more. 

We also meet with J. again! He is really funny. And always making jokes but he is understanding what we teach and we finished the Plan of Salvation! 

The Lord keeps His work moving on. It will continue to go forward and bless the lives of all of His children!

I love y'all! Have a great week!

Love your missionary,
Elder Drew Bowen
