So many things

This week, WOW. 

So flash back to the temple open house, a man named Doug walked up to me in the reception tent, asking how he could get a Book of Mormon, because he wanted to know more about the church. He wanted one right then, but we didn't have any left, so I had him fill out a comment card & promised I would have someone bring him one. When we get comment cards, we're supposed to put them in a basket, where they are collected and then distributed the next day. But for some reason I really felt the need to keep this one and ENSURE he got visited. He said he LOVED the temple and was so, so grateful. Flash forward 3 weeks, and turns out he's in our area. We had finished with the temple, and we were able to stop by his house and give him the Book of Mormon. He invited us onto his porch, and with big blue sad eyes he explained that he was finally taking time off from work to grieve the loss of his son, who died last year, and how he's always kinda been a self-proclaimed atheist, but lately he's been reading more spiritual books. He said that he thinks the Book of Mormon will really help him. We promised him that it really, really will. We set up a time to meet with him in 2 weeks, because he said he doesn't want to meet until he finishes the book (and he said he will read it three times in two weeks so he really, really gets everything out of it). We were filled with so much love towards this man that we barely knew, freezing our socks off during the first snow of the season in October. Our God truly is a God of Miracles.

Anyways, this week was amazing. We were able to have a lot of lessons and pick up an investigator named LaShaya. She's SUPER awesome. She even wants to start bringing her friend to the lessons with her, and we're so excited! 

Mike is still on date to be baptized on the 26th of November, and Eric is still on date to be baptized on the 19th (same day of the cultural celebration) and Sarah is ALSOS on date to be baptized on the 19th! IT'S GOING TO BE A CRAZY MONTH! But we're so excited for everything the end of 2016 has in store for us and for this area! The temple has placed so many miracles in our path, and I am SO grateful for this. My mission is almost half-way over! I am getting to the point where no way I don't want this to end, I feel like It's getting to the best part and I just want this to last forever!

Anyways, pictures!
