Hola Familia y Amigos!
This week was transfer calls and I will be staying here in Bedford, New Hampshire. My companion Elder Shupe is headed home and Elder Pemberton is being transferred as Assistant to the President and will be serving in the neighboring ward of Manchester.
Other than transfer calls this week was super awesome we taught a lot of good lessons and were able to see some miracles for the last week of the transfer. On Tuesday is when we had a lot of work we had 5 lessons that day and two of them we were able to have fellowship for our investigators there. Unfortunately all of our lessons except one on Wednesday fell through. But some miracles did happen.
-Miracle 1: We went and saw S and A- they are fairly recent investigators that we picked up a few weeks ago and hey have come to Church the past two weeks in a row. A is reading the Book of Mormon and we left them with the Plan of Salvation pamphlet to read when we stopped by one night and S loves it and has read it through twice. They are so prepared for the Gospel and it is super cool to see them so enthusiastic and excited about everything.
-Miracle 2: we saw L and J is week on Saturday night and had dinner with them and a good lesson on the Book of Mormon and faith after they had read Alma 32. They seem to be enjoying the parts in the Book of Mormon that resonate with them but they are still struggling to understand the entire Book. So please pray for them to be able to understand he Book of Mormon.
-Miracle 3: Happened yesterday after Church. Well first off S, A, and J came to Church. And then after Church we all went up to the Joseph Smith Memorial Birthplace and they all loved it. S and A especially because at one point S said "This guy Joseph must have been one of the most important people to have been born over the past few hundreds of years". It is cool to see someone understand or at least start to understand who Joseph Smith truly was.

I would just like to leave you all with my testimony that I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ in the spring of 1820 and that he was guided and directed by God to Translate and ancient record now known to all humanity as The Book of Mormon- Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I know that as we read the Book of Mormon, Pray and ponder about it that we can receive a witness of its truthfulness and divinity, that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet of God. I know that through Joseph Smith God has once again end restored his only true and living Church here on the Earth again and at we are guided and directed by a living prophet today who is guided by The Head of this church, the head of my life, our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. This is His work and His glory that I am privileged to be apart of and I know it is all true.
Have an awesome week.
