15 May 2012

Hello family!
It was good to see you on Sunday for Mothers Day!  I hope you're all (still) doing well.  There's not a lot to say other than what we talked about.  We did however, pick up a new investigator yesterday.  His name is Thomas [edit], and he's a YSA kid.  His two best friends both have mission calls and invited him to learn about the church.  One of them leaves to Mozambique in a couple weeks, and the other leaves to Barcelona in August.  He's been a Christian growing up, and likes what he sees of the Church so far.  He visited his friends up in Provo at BYU and went to church there.  He's planning on coming to church this week.  Probably the biggest roadblock is his parents, who are very anti-LDS, and don't know he's meeting with the missionaries.  But he is determined to make the right choice, depending on the answer he receives about the Book of Mormon.  He read a chapter and prayed, but didn't get an answer.  He's going to keep trying though.  He's trying to make sure he's learning about the church for himself, and not for Keegan or Matt (his friends).  One fun part of the lesson though was a little unusual.  He's been skeptical about Joseph Smith being a prophet and wanted to know if he's ever prophesied anything that happened.  We showed him in the Doctrine and Covenants section 87 I think (something like that) about the prophecy on the Civil War.  He was blown away!
Other than that, not much has been going on, other than Elder Rupp packing and getting ready to be transferred.  I've been promoted to the big desk in the room and the bottom bunk.  I'll let you know about my new companion as soon as I find out.
Have a great week!
Elder La Follette
