February 9, 2015

Dear Family,

Well it was my first week with Elder Carreiro. He's a good guy from
West Jordan, Utah and he's been out for almost 9 months. I'm excited
to work with him. Our first week together we had a lot of success.
I'll start off with a few miracles. We found a investigator a couple
of weeks ago named Jeff Virgil. We just happened to pull up in the
parking lot of a apartment complex at the same time and we talked to
him. Well it turns out his daughter is a recent convert in the ysa
branch here as of about 8 months ago. wrote a article
on her conversion story so its a pretty legit conversion. Well we've
met with Jeff a couple of times now and we stopped by Friday night and
that was the first time we've been there while his family was there
and that was how we met Tarin(the recent convert). Well he offered to
feed us dinner with his family and we just had a good time with one
another. Jeff loves sports so we just talked sports basically the
whole time. Well after dinner we taught the whole family the
Restoration. Jeff, Tarin, Paige who's about 25, and Iris who's about
11. Well the whole family was asking lots of questions and it was
really just a special lesson to remember. The spirit was super strong.
Jeff's wife has recently passed away so it might make him more
accepting of the message we have to offer. He accepted the challenge
to pray and consider being baptized. He told us he didn't think it was
a coincidence that we met him that one day in the parking lot. Anyways
we're just super excited about this family and the potential they

We're still working with our investigator named Michelle. We basically
picked her up my first day in the area and she's awesome. She now has
amazing fellowship in the ward and everything. We had a awesome lesson
with her this week and she's really progressing along. Hopefully we
can get her on date soon!

Noah is our other guy we're getting really close with. He's been to
church now about 3 times and also has amazing fellowship in the ward.
He's really studying things out and really doing his
research..although he needs to turn to God and actually ask for
direction where ultimately all truth comes from.

Our other miracle is about a less active couple named the Ryders that
we've been working with. Prior to 3 weeks ago they hadn't gone to
church in over 30 years! Well we've been diligently working with them
and they have come to church the past 3 weeks in a row! How cool is
that! He's even talked with the bishop and set a plan and a goal to work
towards the temple so he can get sealed to his wife!

We got to play basketball this week with our Elders Quorum because
there's nonmembers there and less actives. It was a good time and a
nice way to relieve some stress that comes with being a missionary.

Love you guys hope you have a great week!

Elder Rosenbaum
