Monday April 16, 2012: Elder Bowles

Dear Mom and Dad:
Wow that's a big surprise for Grandma Dew.  That is cool.
That was good that she saw Compton High School.  I miss Compton.  Aaa
Compton is the best place.  The members don't agree for missionaries
going into compton aaa yes.   So as you know transfers have already
ended.  Elder Henry will be going into another area.  We just found out
this morning that Elder Henry will be going to Brazil this Thursday
and he will get there Friday afternoon.  He is doing a day and half
of flying.  He will leave here then go to Utah-- Salt Lake City, then go
to Atlanta then go to Brazil then go to his mission.  So he has a
lot of airplanes to fly.   I will have a new companion but I don't
remember his name.  All I know is that he is a visa waiter going to
the New Zealand mission.  I guess there is something wrong with his
visa too.  
 Years ago Elder Nelson of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles came to the
Whittier zone and talk to the members about the area.  Now the members told us all this.
Before Elder Nelson left to go back to Utah he felt impressed to leave
a blessing and to bless the area for missionary work that more people will be
entering into the church in Whittier.  This is a hard area to work just
like Cerritos, no one wants to talk to you.  Whitter has a Biola school
which is the evangelic church.  The church that believes in  the trinity.
I don't get their religion.  SO everyone knows us.  But Elder Nelson
blessed the area for missionary work and more people are coming into the
church.  Right now we have 10 investigators and 2 of them with a
baptism date.  Now you are starting to see a fulfillment of that
prophecy that Elder Nelson gave.  More people in Whittier are accepting
the gospel.
We have found all of our investigators by walking.
Some missionaries would take their cars and go from appointment to
appointment.  We park our car in one spot and walk to most of our
appointments and that way we were able to have 10 investigators.   I
am praying everyday to keep those 10 investigators.  This is a huge
blessing in this area.  I will continue to work hard I can't wait to
work.  One of our investigators is solid.  We contacted her by
knocking on the wrong door.   She said that she would be interested.
We taught her last week and she accepted it and she was expecting us
to come over.  We taught her about the restoration and she loved it and has
a baptismal date.  She is really nice and really solid.  She works as
a dental assistant.   We had a return appointment but she was not there so
my guess is she got called to work.  But we will contact her again.  It
was a good spiritual lesson with her.  She really liked us coming
over.  So everything is really good.  I can't wait.  Happy birthday
Thanks for supporting me.  
Love Elder Bowles
