Another Week Gone By!

Hello everyone! Where did the month of October go?! Crazy to think how fast time went with that month!! This week wasn't too crazy! We got a new relief society president, this is her 3rd time being called as a relief society president so she's pretty experienced! She really wants stuff to start moving so it'll be good to work with her!! On Friday we had our ward trunk or treat! Halloween isn't very big here but it was good to get to see and know the ward more and more. We had a good turn out and a lot of Less actives showed up so it was good to get them back with the ward!! We had a question and answer game so we still had some gospel teaching in it!! On Saturday we thought we'd use trick or treating to get some good door knocking in ;) some people thought it was funny when we said trick or treat some people not so much, but some people actually gave us a few pieces of candy and let us talk with them a little about the gospel so it was a good thing!! Yesterday was the big day.. On our way to church we were just driving and I was relaxing just gathering my thoughts for church. I heard my comp say "are they going to slow down?" I didn't get what he meant by that then BOOM!!! We got rear ended bad. I wasn't expecting it at all so I was like a rag doll. Blacked out for a quick second and walked away with a very sore back and neck. So we were both pretty out of it for the rest of the day. But our car came out victorious. Still drives, the trunk just doesn't close and the back is smashed. SO everywhere we drive the car beeps at us saying our door is open. But their car is destroyed. Won't start or anything. They had a 92 corolla and we had a 2014 corolla so that just shows how much better cars have gotten over the years haha!!  Today we had a zone devotional where we really got to know every person in our zone and had a good breakfast to go a long with it! One of our zone leaders finishes his mission tomorrow so it was sad to say goodbye to him! But that's the mission life so all is good!! 

This week was a good one!! Nothing too crazy but a lot of good potential out there!! Make sure you keep to the basic church standards! CPR. Church attendance, Prayer daily, and reading daily. During halftime of one of the All Blacks games they didn't go into the locker room to sit and recharge, they stayed on the field and did the basic rugby skills such as passing the ball, kicking, and tackling. Ask yourself how often do YOU do the basic church things to keep the spirit in your life and draw closer to our Heavenly Father. I know as you continue to do that basics you will see the blessings in your life!! Love you all! Please keep the letters coming! It's a blessing to see and hear from all of you!! Have a good week!!
