Meet The Mormons

We had a very interesting, but good week. We recieved a text from the Assistants to the President on Wednesday about us traveling to Iowa City,  its about 30 minutes from here in Cedar Rapids. We went to Iowa City to watch the Movie "Meet the Mormons". It was an awesome privilege to watch. President Jensen wanted us to view it before the public views it on October 10th. I highly recommend viewing this movie. 

Transfers are coming up this next week on October 16th. My companion Elder Olsen will be leaving more than likly and I will be staying in Cedar Rapids. We had a really cool experience this week. We found a very nice Neighbor hood in our Area. We spent a lot of time knocking. We have several new investigators. We knocked into 2 less active Members. That is just unheard off. Since I have been here in Cedar Rapids we have knocked into 4 less active families that there records aren't in our ward.We were walking through a neighborhood knocking doors and we noticed a Utah license plate, so we ran to the other side off the road and knocked on the door. It was a young married couple who just graduated from Utah State. They moved in a month ago, but had not made it to church. He is a return missionary, and we could tell they were embarrassed they hadn't been to church. What a surprise that we found them. They were shocked when we knocked on there door haha! 

The best part about the week was finding a man from Lebanon. He moved to the United States 2 years ago because of all the political uprising in Lebanon and the war. We meet him at 6:15, 45 minutes before the Priesthood session of Conference. We taught him the Restoration and invited him to the Priesthood session. He said " I would love to come, lets leave now." He came to the church and watched the Priesthood Session. During the last 3 talks he had tears in his eyes. It was one of the highlights of my mission so far. He is
very excited to be Baptized. I cant wait to keep you all updated on him. I enjoyed conference very much! I hope everyone is doing well! Have a good week! 
-Love Elder Lords
