Week 13 - October 31, 2016 - Gallipolis, Ohio

This week was very interesting to say the least haha! But it was also AWESOME as it always is! The weather is really starting to get colder and I'm struggling to type as we speak because my hands are shaking looolz. Anyway, the trees here are so pretty actually and they most definitely look like fruit loops! I'll send a sick pic of it later on. It's dope. Also, Halloween is so weird here. They trick or treat on the Thursday before Halloween, nobody is allowed to dress up as clowns (for obvious reasons), and people literally will just throw candy at you when you walk by their houses on trick or treating night. But hey, we got free candy and we didn't even have to ask for it so woot woot. Okay, so now the highlights of the week! 

First of all, how's the book of mormon reading been? UPDATE: I have bookmarks and stickers that have to do with the Book of Mormon challenge that President Salisbury gave all the missionaries! If you want me to send you one, hit me up with an email! Haha! They are really really cool :) 


R---. She's doing amazing! I don't remember if I said it in my last email but we set her baptism date for November 26th! We committed her to church last week but she got really sick and couldn't come on Sunday :( but we will invite her again this week! The only thing is, she needs to get married. But I'm sure she's totally down for that because she said she would literally do ANYTHING to be baptized on that date! So please pray for her that she will be able to do what's necessary to get married before that date :)

D----. So bad news about D---. She told us last week that she wasn't sure if she was going to get married by November 12th. She has A LOT financial concerns so she needs to sort things out first. She said she wants to get married in January.....uh yeah no. We really DON'T wanna push her date that far ahead! We are gonna try and sit down with her and ask her what she needs to do in order to be baptized by the end of the month AT LEAST! She's so ready to be baptized and Satan is literally doing EVERYTHING he can to stop her from doing so. So I ask again, please please please pray for her! She loves this gospel more than anything and wants to do what's right!

B----. He's doing awesome! He's still reading the Book of Mormon every day and he told us a couple of days ago that he KNOWS Joseph Smith was a prophet! WAHOO! We are really gonna try and set him on date TODAY! So please pray for him that everything will work out for him and that he will start preparing for baptism! We truly feel like he's ready to be invited to be baptized!


What's your favorite Book of Mormon story? SHARE IT with someone! Share with them what your favorite Book of Mormon story is and WHY it's your favorite and how why it's important that we apply the story's principles to our lives! It will not only build someone else's testimony on that principle but it will also give you a greater love for that story and the Book of Mormon! :)


So on Thursday night, when the trick or treaters were out and about, we walked by this group of teenagers and they started laughing at us. We were like, "What the actual?". We didn't know why they were laughing at us. Then they said, "That's an awesome costume! Mormon missionaries! Hahahaha!" I was like, "Haha we actually ARE mormon missionaries!" Then they just went silent. And gave us candy and walked away without saying another word. Hahaha! Then like 4 more people said the same thing to us. It was AWESOME! Haha! We got a lot of candy lolz.

Our Halloween Costume! Mormon Missionaries!

Thank you all so much for your amazing examples in my life! You've all impacted my life one way or another, so THANK YOU! I love you all so much and hope you have an amazing week :)
