Well not a whole ton to say this week. Most of our appointments fell through or were less active members telling us they do not want to be members anymore. It was rough. I cannot understand their point of view right now, nor do I ever hope to really understand. The knowledge that we have is the answer to everything. Anyway, the work is moving on but slow and steady.

I learned how to storm proof windows this week haha. Yes. I have now climbed many many ladders in a skirt and tights. We basically give service a ton and search for teaching opportunities, plus knocking lots of doors. The Lord IS preparing people we just have to work hard and smart to find them 🙂 We did meet one man named Andrew when we were trying to contact a less active family. We taught him the restoration and he was excited to start reading the Book of Mormon. Exciting!

On Friday we drove five hours to attend an hour meeting for trainers. It was fun but I learned driving in a car for that long when you are used to constantly doing something is draining. We listened to Elder Ballard’s talk on Hyrum and Joseph as a companionship again. But it was just as good if not better the second time!

At one of our members that lives way out in the boonies, we got to see so many awesome stars after dinner. It was the first time I have taken time to look at the stars in a while. The world that is created just for us in fantastic! Also I got to see the Gilbert Temple on Lds.org and wow. I cannot wait to see the inside in about a year!

Well I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. I am excited because we get to basically be with members for beggars night and Halloween. Love you all!
