Dear Family,Miracles have bombarded us like manna raining from the sky!
Meet another family: We met the wife/mother three months ago and began teaching her about the Book of Mormon. Soon her son began piping in on the lessons and they began to progress rapidly together toward baptism. Within a month and a half we met her husband, and invited him to learn about the gospel with his family. He began reading the Book of Mormon and progressing rapidly as well. Last week as we were reviewing the Plan of Salvation, another young son pulled up a chair and joined us. As we asked him questions we realized that he had been listening to all of the lessons we have been teaching his family! He has been hiding behind the couch or around the corner where we could not see him, but he has listened to everything we taught! He already knew the Plan of Salvation and he had been waiting for us to give him a Book of Mormon! The entire family is progressing wonderfully toward their baptism at the end of May. The Lord has been preparing their hearts.
Vinton/Roanoke has been a marvelous area! I have worked harder and taught more here than ever before! When I arrived in this area four months ago we had one investigator. Now we have countless investigators and six of them are on date to be baptized at the end of this month! We have been finding and teaching families who are prepared for the gospel and who love the Lord. This area has transformed and flourished under the direction of the Lord and the Ward. It has been marvelous to work and witness the Lord's work hastening His way. Fairmont will be wonderful, I am thankful for the opportunity to go back to that incredible area!
