Good morning!It is a great month! Perhaps one of the best months out of all of them! it started of with a really good General Conference and there were all so many good talks! I have a ton of notes and i was going through them this morning and started underlining challenges that they all left and other things that i felt like i needed to do! There were a lot of things that i need to do... Ha but i have at least until next General Conference to apply some of them! So i am looking forward to that! I liked the talk that was given! I cant remember his name... i am horrible with names. But it is the one that talked about aligning your life with what your patriarchal blessing says so i went through all my notes and wrote down anything that applied to my patriarchal blessing and that is what i will be working on! So i am excited for that!
This last week was a really good week! We had a lot to do! So it first started out with going on an awesome exchange with Elder Jacobs! We had a really good day and a really good experience! On Tuesday we got done with a lesson and we were looking at the planner on where to go next and we decided to go to this members house to see how things were going. We got there and noticed that her car wasn't there but we still went up and tried it. As we were walking up the ramp to the front door, a guy said, "Get out!!" So we looked at each other but kept walking. Ha so we were walking up with some dogs and it turns out that he was talking to the dogs so that was good to know. Ha but we came into his view and he saw us and said, oh sorry, not you guys. I was talking to the dogs." It was pretty funny. So that was the experience. Just kidding but he was Sister Mott's son, who is an active member, and his name is Karl. He hadn't gone to church in a long time and was a little hesitant but he let us in. We ended up talking to him for like a half our and he told us how he lacked faith and he was going through a pretty hard time. So Elder Jacobs and I gave him a scripture to read in the Book of Mormon and he sounded really excited to read it! That made us excited as well! But he asked for a blessing after the lesson and said that he was glad we stopped by. He has a lot of doubts and questions but we told him that he could have all of those questions answered if he put forth a little effort to seek the answers. He was really excited about that so we are going back tonight to see how things are going for him. He went out to Tuba City because he had court so he was also stressed out for that! But he felt a lot better about it after the blessing!
On Wednesday we had Zone Conference and that was really good also! We had the opportunity to watch "Meet the Mormons"!!! It was really good! it was really funny at the beginning! They opened it up in a great way and it caught my attention really quick! You should all see it if you havent already! It was so good! I wish i could watch it again! Also one of the parts in there, it shows Snowbird!! Ha i miss snowboardin! ha it was cool though! really good movie!
Thursday we had Elder Christensen with us who is the assistant to the President! He is an awesome missionary! He taught us a lot! We were only with him for like a half a day because he had to take the long 4 hour drive to Farmington! Ha i have made that trip way to much! But on the bright side, i know how to get around like the whole reservation without being lost!
The weekend was really good also! It is starting to get cold and i am loving it! It feels so nice down here and i am excited because they have a couple of festivals coming up that are pretty big so there will be a lot of people in Page! Elder Thompson is doing great! We have transfer news this Saturday so i will let you know how things go next week! Hopefully i will get to finish out training Elder Thompson! Ha love you all and have a great week!
So this week was pretty awesome! i am loving Page! It is probably one of my favorite areas! Well all of them are my favorite! But this last week we went to the Fall Festival they has this week and set up a booth on family history! It was really fun! The festival was a 3 day event! Each of the sets of missionaries in Page took shifts so we could have someone there the whole time managing the booth! But it was really fun! Especially because it is the best season of the year! I love the fall! But we were able to teach people about family history and we had quite a bit of people come by! We had the DJ announce people to come by and there was this lady that came by and we told her about familysearch.org and she started screaming and jumping up and down and yelling, "I hit the jackpot!!" it was pretty funny! But we had two computers and an ipad there so we could search up peoples ancestors right on the spot! We were able to find quite a bit of stuff! It was harder when native americans came by because it is harder to find there ancestors because most of them lived way out in the middle of no where and hardly have any records to find! But it was still really fun! We have the Balloon Regada festical this weekend along with the trunk or treat so we are going to be busy this weekend! It will be really fun though! The Balloon Regada festival is going to be sweet! There will be a ton of hot air balloons friday. saturday, and sunday! They close off main street so all the people with hot air balloons can land in the street! There will be a lot of people so it will be really fun to set up a booth again! Anyway things are going great! That was most of the week! We set a new baptismal date! Francesca Miller, who is a recent convert and is doing really awesome, has a daughter that is like 17 or 18 expressed that she wanted to be baptized the first lesson we had with her! We went there on Wednesday and taught her the gospel of Jesus Christ and answered all the questions that she had! Her date is for December 6 so we are helping prepare her for that! But all is well! How is everyone else doing???
