Sister Whetton, 2nd row, third from the right and Sister Larson, 1st row, second from the left are serving together presently in Minneapolis. They arrived together April 28th --- this is a picture of their first day here. They recently reported an amazing miracle, (one of numerous miracles called in). In their own words: "Today we taught this guy named Chris. We met him last week on Wednesday in the pouring rain and had an appointment on Sunday. He actually CAME to his appointment! (It must have been in the Institute building!) We gave him the first 20 minute lesson, teaching him about the spirit, prayer and the Book of Mormon! He agreed to read Alma 32. Tuesday afternoon we taught him again. He came exclaiming that the Book of Mormon "is amazing!" He had read Alma 32 five times! We taught him the restoration, using visuals, giving him the baptismal challenge at the end of the lesson. He wanted to pray about baptism, but remarked that he felt good and why wouldn't God want him to do this? He committed to read Moroni 7. He came back today (July 2nd) for our third lesson with him. We gave him the plan of salvation lesson, using visuals. We taught him the whole plan. He was overcome. We asked him what he needed to do to receive all the the blessings Heavenly Father has for him. He responded, "Just a minute, I wrote it down in the back of my Book of Mormon." Then he read, "Have faith, repent, be baptized, receive the Holy Ghost! I feel so good about this! I've never felt so good about anything in my whole life!" His baptismal date is July 24th!
