Small miracles

Hey Family!
Well I am still learning to work in this area but things are starting to get a bit better. We had interviews with our President last week and they were awesome. He shared the story with Paul was teaching and he suffered tons, was beaten, and thrown in jail. Only after many trials and tribulations did the Lord send a miracles (an Earthquake) and the jail guard and his entire family were baptized. Presidente explained that this area is a lot different that the others that I have served, I need to really work a ton with the members here. But I am excited to work here, it is really giving me tons of opportunities to grow and get better. This past week we found some really good new investigators that we are going to work this week. It was interesting last week we saw a recent convert on the street. She came up to us and told us she was leaving the church. That she didn´t feel comfortable at church, that she didn´t understand and because the gospel was too hard to live. After talking with her for about an hour with couldn’t convince her to stay, so we told her to pray about it and we would return and see what she thought. We returned Sunday and she was all ready for church. She never told us how she was answered, but it was obvious God answered her prayer very clearly. It was awesome to see that an honest prayer can do.

 I love you guys all so much and hope that you guys have a great week. Also that is great to hear that grandma is doing well. Tell Grandma and Grandpa I love them and good luck getting better or having surgery.
Anyways I love you all so much and wish you guys a happy Halloween and a great week
Love, Elder Ottosen
