Happy Halloween!

Lots of pictures from this week! Pumpkin carving from last week,
temple squared trip with one of the family's we've been visiting, and
the last MLC!
Today we're going to a corn maze as a district! Then we're having a
zone meeting tonight since we're not allowed to go outside, because
people dress up as missionaries and they're keeping us safe! Haha

So this week was pretty good, we got to go to temple square with the
Ward's, temple trips are always kind of rushed, and it was really
rushed this time since we went in the evening, but it was really neat
seeing them watch God's plan for families together 😊

This week when we met with one of the people we've been seeing since I
got here, who is having a hard time believing in God. He offered the
opening prayer, and after wards I said " it sounded like you really
meant that, like you believed someone was listening". And he paused,
then said "well I hope there is..." which was a huge deal! Because
before he wasn't even sure if he hoped there was a God. He's been
thinking about the things he hopes for in life, and I'm so happy that
is one of them! 😊 he came to church with his whole family Sunday, it
was great!

One of the people we've been teaching told us this week that he didn't
think he would be baptized even if He knew God wanted him to, which
was a real bummer... but we will continue praying for him and seeing
how we can help him! We were able to start teaching a few new people
this week, and met a few more that we set up lessons with this week!
So stay tuned for more miracles next week! 🎉

This week I loved reading in the New Testament about the gift of the
Holy Ghost.
In Acts 8:14-17
14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria
had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might
receive the Holy Ghost:
16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were
baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

I love it, because the more I read the Bible, the more I see that
everything that was done in Christ's church then, is also done now! I
truly do believe that the fullness of the gospel that Christ taught
while He was here has been restored in its entirety, and that it
brings more happiness than anything else in this life can, because our
relationship with Jesus Christ is so much more important than anything
this world has to offer. I know that He loves a each and every one of
you so much and I believe he would have suffered all that He did if it
were only for one of us. That is how much we mean to God!

I love you all and hope you have a blessed week! 🙏🏽
