Week 73

Hello wonderful family, friends, acquaintances and everyone else!! Happy October! Can you believe it is October? That means November and December are coming. And then 2017! Wow. 2017. Cool stuff. Anyways this week was pretty good! We had a TON of meetings and stuff so we really only got to work for 2.5 days. But in those days miracles happened!! So the Sisters were teaching a man named Daniel. He is in a different ward. Some situations made it necessary that we would need to take over teaching him. So as of Saturday we have been teaching Daniel. Well he is super solid! He has committed to be baptized on the 29th and we might move it up to like the 15th! He has changed so much already as the spirit has taught him and his testimony has grown. I am excited to teach him! He wants us to meet with him everyday! That is so cool! Lots of teaching now. We had zone conference this week! 4 zones got together to be taught by President Guffey. I got to see some old missionary friends which was awesome. The spirit was super strong! I learned a ton. So cool miracle this week. We started teaching a girl named Theresa. We taught the Restoration to her and she accepted a baptismal date of OCT 22! it was super cool! We haven't heard from her since though so keep her in your prayers! We are still working with our other investigators too. So the highlight of this week was General Conference. If you don't know what that is, it is a huge church wide broadcast where the Prophet and Apostles of the Lord speak to us. And other leaders of the church as well, male and female. Their words are inspired and inspiring. It is an amazing time to get answers to prayers and hear the words of living prophets. It happens twice a year. So the rest of my email is going to be questions that many of you might have, and a link or two to go watch a talk that helps answer that question.
Where do I come from? Why am I here? What happens after death?
What is the Book of Mormon and why do we need it?
Is Joseph Smith truly a prophet of God?
Why do bad things happen to good people? Is it possible to be happy?
By listening to these talks, you can come to know for yourself of who the Savior is and how much He loves you. This is His church led by His chosen servants. I love you all!!
