"Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work . . ." D&C 64:33


Elders Bond & Eyre

Taught 7 families recently from their ward less active list & have 4 date sets as a result (a family).


Elders Butler & Pugh

Never had missionaries just in Wadina.  They stopped by an investigator referral!

She has a date set for Sept. 26th.  Went to an excommunicated member’s house, taught him / his son / both committed to baptism on Sept. 26th.

They were teaching a less active, who loved the lessons & invited her friend (she turned into a member present).  Sept. 8th they committed him for baptism on Sept. 26th!

Elders Chamema & Bott

We love the church tour & have used it for every investigator but one & have 4 baptismal date sets because of it! A less-active member invited her neighbor to come hear the lessons; his baptismal date is October 3rd!

Pres. Smith in Duluth:

My desire is to make this area GROW; there are 30 stakes in this mission!

         Thunder Bay

Elders Kanno & Jepsen

Found 3 new investigators last week & 3 more at the beginning of this week!

Katherine Baxter, an investigator called them.  She had met with the missionaries several years ago.  She had a dream that she needed to read the Book of Mormon & be baptized.  She has a strong testimony of restoration & a baptismal date of October 5th

Elders Fawson & Meyers

Took Bishop Hilton over to meet the Lo family, who had baptismal date set.  The missionaries asked if they were coming to church Sunday; “maybe” was the reply. Bishop Hilton bore his testimony about how he gained his faith, as they read several chapters in the Book of Mormon with them.  When they teach, the whole family of 10 (7 at home) comes in; they love the lessons & help teach each other. They said they would be there on Sunday, for sure!

Pres. Foote in Rochester:

Numbers tell a story.

Sisters Shakespear & Hope

One of our date sets has investigated forever.  The Relief Society President, Sister Bauer set a date with her on Sunday, the very week when we were able to get 20 lessons & 300 contacts. It is so neat to see how the Lord puts everything into place.  We also recently found two families we are teaching!


The Lord wants us to train & use members.  The sons of Mosiah brought 1,000’s into the church using members!


Elders Hill & Hunter

Yesterday on exchanges with Elder Vang, we taught a 10 year old girl, her less-active parents have been meaning to have her baptized, her date set is now Sept. 26th!  Meanwhile, we’re activating her parents!

Elders Fernandez & Guillory

On exchanges they went to check on a referral from the Nauvoo Pageant.  She had met with missionaries before; they committed her to baptism.  The spirit was so strong!

Elders Cutshall & Madsen

While teaching a less-active girl in our single’s ward, we resolved some of her anti-Mormon dad’s concerns.  He stood up at the end of the discussion & said, “if only every Mormon was like you guys!”  We were grateful to change his opinion!


Elders Pugmire & Blume

Elder Pugmire quoted Rachel Brown before she was baptized as saying, “This is the first time in my life I have felt God’s love for me!”

Elders Jensen & Pollastro

An investigator said recently: “What is all this anti stuff about your church?  I don’t believe one word!”


Your testimonies are the Lord’s media campaign!

Elders Clark & Rutter

Great companionship UNITY=being in tune!

Elders Sommer & Hardy had 3 baptisms in Eau Claire / 10 member presents weekly; they had faith to FIND.

Elders Varner / Sorenson

501 contacts

5 new investigators

HURRAH FOR ISRAEL & ISRAEL’S SERVANTS ---  the missionaries in MMM!  How beloved you are to the Lord and Master, your families and us ---
