(Letter from Sept 5, 2016)
This week has been super good with plenty of awesome things happening
everyday! We've been able to meet with a good number of people this
week and we are building up a teaching pool.  One of the awesome
things that happened this week is that this guy named Dillon who has
been visiting the North Bend ward for the summer left with his wife to
BYU Idaho this week but before he left he helped us get one of our new
investigators John. We got a call from him and he told us that John
was someone who had just started working with him and they started
talking and he just felt prompted to invite John to take the lessons
and John agreed. So we met at Mingus Park and had a super incredible
lesson. John grew up Jehovah's Witness and was super duper interested
in finding the right path. We shared the restoration with him and he
really felt it. He said that he had really been looking for some truth
and he was willing to read the Book of Mormon and pray. It was

Also this week we met with a guy named Chris who was a referral from
the Zone leaders. Chris was at a Piano Guy's concert in Portland and
he said that he felt the spirit super hard and felt inspired to check
out our church. He was an honest seeker of truth and it was a pleasure
to sit down with him. We all felt the spirit super strong and Elder
Deppe and I were super proud when our little greenie Elder
Kellerstrass bore a powerful testimony of the Book of Mormon. He
brought tears to all our eyes. It was a great lesson and he is anxious
to read and pray and to continue meeting. We found a few other people
while tracting who all seemed cool and it was great to find them.

Yeah I think that's about it. Just all around a fabulous week with
lots of miracles. It's super fun and I can't believe the transfer is
more than halfway done. I'm super excited to tackle this next week and
see the miracles that come. LOve you all!
