I can't believe that it is already Monday. Time continues to FLY! I am glad that you all had a good week. Mom, Sabrina sent me the best blackmail photo of you. I laughed pretty hard in the library. Thanks for all of the snap chats of Jake... Gross! I just took a "snap chat and I'll attach it to this email haha." Dad I am sorry you lost your tournament. It sounded like it was a pretty close game. Shain Salmon is going to Russia?? Okay that is super neat. I have been emailing my friend Courtney and she has been in Russia for 6 months and its in the 30's there. Hey dad one thing that our ward is doing to hasten the work is every family is making a Family Mission Plan. I really like the idea.
Okay this week has been crazy. We are now teaching 8 Less Actives on a weekly basis and we had a miracle happen last week with one of them. We have recently been teaching a lady who was on the DO NOT CONTACT list. We are now helping her husband come back to church as well. They both fed us dinner on Tuesday. They have not been to church in over a year but we will continue to help them gain that desire to go. Centreville has been booming lately and I love it. We are still teaching Erandi and her daughter Destiny. We took them to a baptism yesterday after church. They really enjoyed the baptism and Erandi is still looking forward to baptism on November 9th.
I participated in an event called Centreville Days. It's just like Swiss Days. We had a booth and talked to others about the church. Our thing was we told people that we would love to take a FREE picture of their family (A forever family) and then the missionaries will deliver it to the house. Genius huh! So in the next week I will be delivering photos to these individuals and sharing the gospel with them. During the event I was the photographer. Hopefully the pictures turned out okay hahaha. Our mission leader put this together a few years ago. It really is a great idea.
It is definitely Fall here in Virginia. The leaves are just gorgeous. It is also getting cold here. I pulled out all of my winter stuff. I realized that I might need my coat in the near future. Can you send it to me? I also have a black skirt in my room from lands end. Can you send that to me also? Thank you so much!
Family what are you doing for Halloween this year? I am so curious. I love this time of year. Well I love you all! Have another great week
