Does God answer fervent prayers?

Yes, Yes, and......yes. We had a miracle filled week. We really appreciate the prayers. Things dramatically picked up this past week. We picked up the son of a current investigator Monday evening and he's now praying regularly for the first time in his life. We'll be seeing them again this evening. We picked up 4 more people on Friday, two of which are now preparing for baptism for the 17th of October. We really do owe it all to the Lord having a hand in all things.
The new places and things we are trying are working well. We had four people at Church this week too. That's the most we've had in my 5 months here and, if I'm not mistaken, the entire year so far. Things are looking well. We've got a lot of work to do this week and over the next few weeks. The people we've been meeting have been very prepared to receive the Gospel. We were able to see how us meeting them was the perfect timing. There is so much that has happened without us realizing it. I love it! Heavenly Father has been overseeing all his children and really does know when they'll be most receptive to his Gospel. I've learned a good lesson over the past few months how everything really is done in the Lord's time. There's good reason for that too. He's wiser than us so his timing is perfect. I would love to share how big of a miracle these two people preparing for baptism are, but it would take a while. We'll just say we've been amazed at the workings of our Father in Heaven.
This week will probably go by fast. We've got two exchanges with Exeter planned; one Tuesday where I'll be going to Exeter, and another after a Mission Conference on Thursday, probably until Saturday morning. We don't know where our Mission Conference is yet, but we think we'll be road tripping to Reading. It'll take all day and we'll be taught by at least Pres. Kopischke who's now the Europe Area President. It should be a great week. We've got a good teaching pool so your prayers for the people we're teaching to be strengthened and to progress in the Gospel would be great. Thanks for your prayers and support.
Love ya! Talk to you next week.

p.s. Sorry, no pics. I've been lazy lately and haven't even used it in two weeks.
